CM Punk remains one of the most popular pro wrestlers to have ever graced the squared circle. He was at the top of his game while being an active WWE Superstar and singlehandedly made the company interesting again with his infamous pipebomb promo.  Ringside News exclusively reported that Punk has signed a contract with AEW and that Punk is reportedly 100% for an AEW Chicago show, and many are expecting to see him on August 20th at the United Center.

CM Punk is still well aware of how the pro wrestling world is changing, but it doesn’t necessarily mean he is a fan of the current direction. We’ll have to see how he might be able to change things in the weeks to come.

While speaking to Scott Fishman of TV Insider, CM Punk talked about the current wrestling product, stating that it needs a massive change.

“I think the older the stuff is the better. I think it’s partly unfortunate that WWE owns the super good libraries in pro wrestling. I think that stuff is classic and they don’t even put it on their network. They are sitting on it. I want to watch Austin Idol versus Jerry Lawler in Memphis. I do think the landscape of pro wrestling in general really needs a kick in the d*ck. I think we are about there.”

Punk also revealed why he doesn’t watch WWE anymore. The AEW locker room is certainly excited about CM Punk signing with the company. We will have to wait and see if CM Punk truly will debut at the AEW Rampage: First Dance event next week.
