Many consider CM Punk’s AEW debut at AEW Rampage: The First Dance to be one of the greatest moments in the company’s history and it is hard to argue why. To add to that, his debut might even make it to Guinness World Records. 

Punk himself absolutely loved his AEW debut and it was said that AEW had no idea what Punk was going to say in his promo during his debut on AEW Rampage.

CM Punk’s first AEW t-shirt also smashed sales records back in August. On top of that. he helped the company set a new record for merchandise sales as well. CM Punk allow works as part of the AEW commentary team from time to time, which fans certainly can’t get enough of.

While speaking on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, CM Punk talked about doing commentary on AEW and stated that he doesn’t want to take anyone’s commentary job.

We had an idea of me doing commentary on one of Darby’s matches, and we did that, but I was legit backstage going, ‘I want to do the whole show.’

“I’m not trying to take nobody’s job. I just think it’s a cool way to get CM Punk on the show without doing the same things over and over. It’s just a different look. Obviously, selfishly, I was like, I want to work with Tony, and JR and Excalibur, and I got to have a lot of fun and we got to do a cool little angle out of it, made it look different. I think maybe Darby put somebody through the announce table. That was a while ago, so we got to do something a little bit different. Doing commentary with those guys is a blast.”

CM Punk recently defeated Powerhouse Hobbs and it is likely Punk will be feuding with the rest of Team Taz soon enough. We will have to wait and see how his feuds will be booked in the coming weeks.
