CM Punk pulled huge teaser out for Daniel Bryan’s debut on AEW on the All Out. While people would expect AEW to keep all their secrets in the dark, apparently it’s quite the contrary.

Punk was on AEW Dynamite when the fans started a chant on “Yes! Yes! Yes!” While Punk didn’t instantly react to it, he stated that fans would have to be patient before they can rightly shoot out their chants.

That’s somebody else’s schtick and you might need to be a little more patient.

CM Punk talked to Renee Paquette when she asked him about AEW’s reaction to his revelation. He said that there wasn’t any backlash. He also revealed that pretty much everything they said in the promo was completely improvised.


I was the one who was like, ‘Just so you know, here is what I’m going to say.’ Tony was like, ‘I trust you.’ ‘I’m not going to swear, you don’t have to worry about anything like that.’ I think that’s the youthful exuberance of AEW. Tony trusts people to go out there. Going forward, we’ll all learn from our mistakes. If somebody gets the microphone and goes out there, and Tony has trust in them, and they blow it, that person probably won’t have that freedom anymore or it will get limited. Right now, the magic of it is ‘Phil, what do you think of you and Sting being in the ring? How would you guys do that?’ Then me sitting down with Sting and being like ‘Sting?’ ‘You’re the promo guy.’ ‘You’re Sting.’ There is a synergy and discussion. It’s not writers in a room who don’t watch wrestling writing stuff for characters that they don’t understand, so you don’t have individual voices. Me and Sting have an individual voice. I can’t tell Sting what he’s going to say. Sting can’t tell me, Darby doesn’t know what he’s going to say. You have three different generations who talk three different ways and Tony trusts us to come up with the best possible stuff. That segment we did, I don’t think it could have gone any better.

CM Punk is ready to have is first match since his AEW debut with Darby Allin. The two will clash on AEW’s one of the most anticipated pay-per-views AEW ALL OUT.
