CM Punk made his All Elite Wrestling debut a few months ago at AEW Rampage: The First Dance. It certainly changed the pro wrestling world as many people took notice of the company. It seems CM Punk opened up about using his ROH theme as well.

CM Punk has become one of the mainstays of AEW television and has feuded against several stars. His most high profile feud so fair in AEW has certainly been with MJF, as it continued for the past few months.

At AEW Revolution, CM Punk squared off against MJF in a Dog Collar match. When Punk made his entrance, he came out to his old ROH theme AFI’s Miseria Cantare and his ring gear was also from his days in Ring of Honor.

While speaking during the post AEW Revolution media scrum, CM Punk opened up about using his ROH theme song again. Punk burst into tears when he was asked the question and then stated that it was a very important moment for him.


”It was pretty important. I loved ROH so much. I can’t explain how happy I am that my footage is in good hands. It’s good to know that it’s in the hands of somebody that will treat it well. I literally feel that my baby is in somebody’s hands that I know will raise the child the right way and do good things with it and it won’t get made into some tab on a shitty confusing app that is hard to navigate and the boys don’t get paid anything off it. It’s very good. To pay homage to myself, I didn’t get to do this for seven years, this didn’t exist for seven years for me. Obviously, the truth is, I love professional wrestling very much.

To comeback and to be able to, for six months, not just do whatever the f*** you want, it’s doing whatever the f**** you want and being cocky enough to know that your way is, not the right way, there is never one right way, but it’s fucking good. To have somebody that listens to you and have somebody that can take an idea and make it even better and to have an open dialogue. Not just with [Tony Khan], but with other people in the locker room. It’s great that you don’t have to beat your head against the wall and explain why your ideas are shitty and why, I don’t care who you think you are, you don’t know what you’re doing. It’s nice. Everything is just so great.”

We will have to wait and see what is next in store for CM Punk now that he has defeated MJF and has likely brought his feud with MJF to an end.
