CM Punk made his All Elite Wrestling debut on last week’s AEW Rampage: The First Dance, move that created a lot of buzz for the company. Tony Schiavone considered it the greatest debut in pro wrestling history. 

On top of being a full-time pro wrestler again, CM Punk is also acting in the new pro wrestling drama called Heels. Punk played the role of a character named “Ricky Rabies” in the third episode of the series and fans certainly loved it.

While he was still working on the TV series, CM Punk already knew he was going to sign with AEW soon after. Now it seems the Second City Saint was ecstatic thanks to his role in Heels.

CM Punk took to Twitter and revealed that his happiness increased by 12% thanks to his role as Ricky Rabies in the show and on top of that, he gave a shoutout to Thunder Rosa in an amusing way.


According to reports, I am awesome and having fun. Fun was up 12% from last week due to Ricky Rabies and thinking that @thunderrosa22 being from “the graveyards of Tijuana” is super cool.

CM Punk’s debut helped bring in 1.1 million viewers for AEW Rampage: The First Dance and even Eric Bischoff stated that WWE will be forced to change because of CM Punk. It remains to be seen how well CM Punk will fare in the company.
