Is Jon Moxley Quitting AEW After CM Punk Return?

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.

According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that Tony Khan could face some issues if CM Punk comes back. That being said, Punk is likely not far from mkaing his AEW return.

“Tony Khan is legit in a really hard position. Bringing Punk back and not putting him on top probably won’t make Punk happy and putting him on top, perhaps he’ll draw very well but that’s not a lock, and those who carried the company when he was gone won’t be happy he’s back if he’s on top. Then you have the talent that won’t want him back unless he makes amends (and that would be the best thing for everyone, and try and apologize to smooth things out but I don’t know that is in he cards which is why the situation becomes hard).

Will people leave over it? Maybe and that has to be figured in but Moxley and Jericho won’t leave I don’t think since they have long-term deals. Punk is probably not far from being able to return and has said that he wants to wrestle again. Khan is in a contract year (maybe, WBD could just pick up its option for one more year at a much higher price point) and WBD has financial issues and is cutting way back.”
