CM Punk left WWE back in 2014 after the Royal Rumble pay-per-view and since then he vowed never to step foot inside a pro wrestling ring ever again. Of course, he broke his promise as Punk debuted on this week’s AEW Rampage: The First Dance. He was in talks with AEW for quite a long time too.

During his promo, CM Punk called out Darby Allin for a match as the camera cut to Allin and Sting at the rafters. The match was then made official for AEW All Out as it is a dream match for many.

While speaking during a media scrum after the conclusion of AEW Rampage: The First Dance, CM Punk stated that his legacy would be “helping out the young guys” the way Harley Race, Terry Funk, and Eddie Guerrero helped him.

Punk then revealed what Sting told him backstage in AEW, stating that Sting wished he could have worked with Punk during the peak of Sting’s career.

“I had Sting come up to me today and tell me that he’s excited to work with me. He wished that he got to work with me, you know, back in his day. That’s my legacy, man.”

CM Punk will do more than simply wrestle in AEW and fans couldn’t be happier to see CM Punk inside the squared circle again. The sky is the limit for Punk and we will have to wait and see what happens to him in the coming months.
