CM Punk is very likely headed to AEW. The deal is practically done, and all they need to do is put pen to paper. You never know what can happen in pro wrestling, but plenty of fans are hopeful to see Punk at All Out on September 5th.
Ringside News exclusively reported how close this contract is from being completed. It seems that both sides have agreed to a situation that benefits both of them. Now fans will have to play the waiting game until he shows up.
It has not been officially confirmed by the company that CM Punk will be at All Out on September 5th. That hype still found its way to the secondary market. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that tickets on the secondary market skyrocketed for All Out, and now the “get in” price is $141, an 18% increase.
Regarding the secondary market right now, there are only two shows that are what we’d call hot tickets. All Out on 9/5 in Chicago has a $141 get-in price, so the C.M. Punk rumors have upped ticket prices about 18 percent across the board.
It was also reported that AEW’s September 8th show in Cincinnati has a $118 “get in price.” That show will be a big one, because it is Jon Moxley’s hometown and the first time AEW has played the city. Obviously, CM Punk rumors could have played a significant part in that rise as well.
It was also noted that the “get in” price for the Arthur Ashe Stadium show is only $43, despite the report of Daniel Bryan’s debut. That show also has over 17,000 tickets so there are a lot more out there, plus all of the good seats sold out almost instantly.
