CM Punk made his debut a few months ago at AEW Rampage: The First Dance and since then, he has become a huge part of AEW programming. He has put over numerous talent since then and continues to be engaged in solid feuds. AEW was also given props for a recent CM Punk match.

As seen on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, CM Punk squared off against Dax Harwood to start the show. It turned out to be an excellent match, full of old-school fundamentals.

In the end, CM Punk came out with the win after he applied the Anaconda Vice on Harwood. While speaking on The Jim Cornette Experience podcast, Jim Cornette said that if any casual viewer saw Punk’s match, they would think AEW is the major league and not WWE.

“If you had no idea about anything when it comes to the wrestling business . What promotion was on top? What promotion was big or small? Who was where? And you just watched this match [CM Punk vs. Dax Harwood], and then you turned in, you watched any WWE program pretty much just about even the good matches they had. I am not kidding when I say you’d actually think that this AEW was the major league promotion because even when the WWE lets the guys that they have that can go have a good match. The people aren’t into it as much because the WWE fans have been taught that matches are meaningless breaks in between entrances and zoom calls”


We will have to wait and see what is next in store for CM Punk, as it is likely he will get engaged in another program soon enough.
