Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has not been seen on WWE television since the 2014 edition of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He walked out of the company the next day and has not looked back since then. Following his WWE exit, many fans have been wanting to see Punk make his return to the company every year. He has yet to make his return to the squared circle and at this point, it seems very unlikely. A WWE Superstar was also previously punished for ripping off CM Punk.
CM Punk has been in talks with AEW for quite a while as indicated by reports and it all came true as The Second City Saint made his return to pro wrestling on AEW Rampage: The First Dance back in August last year.
During the post-AEW All Out media scrum, CM Punk verbally attacked Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. Ace Steel’s wife, who has a broken foot, was in the room when Ace and CM Punk fought Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks backstage at AEW All Out.
It was also said that Ace Steel bit Kenny Omega during the brawl.
Billi Bhatti reported that CM Punk’s AEW contract is a 2-year 9.6 million deal, and he may be paid $4.17 million to leave.
