One of the biggest superstars of pro wrestling CM Punk has returned to the squared circle after seven years since he left WWE in 2014. On Friday, CM Punk returned to the pro wrestling scene on AEW RAMPAGE: The Final Dance and stunned everybody. Moreover, his return marked a huge uproar from the fans not only those present at the arena in Chicago but also the millions on social media platforms.
Punk left WWE in 2014 after things had turned sour with the top officials at WWE which also includes its CEO, Vince McMahon. This time as well it was no different, as he spoke about how happy he was to be back, he also added about his misery during his time at WWE.
Punk had spoken about the AEW at the Young’s Oral Session podcast. He acknowledged that the pro wrestling scene currently is way different. CM Punk was also known as the ‘Voice of the Voiceless’ for his protests against WWE during his time in the wrestling company.
“You can play the game where you’re like, ‘Oh, AEW was an option, would you have gone right after you left WWE?’ If you are going to play that game, there is no way they (WWE) would have handled it the way they handled it with suspending me for two months and nobody contacting me,” Punk had said.
CM Punk is all set to feature on September 5 in a pay-per-view match against Darby Allin at AEW All Out. It’s set to be a grand affair and looking at the reception CM Punk got, it can well churn in huge profits for AEW.
