CM Punk has already established himself as one of the biggest stars in AEW since his debut last year. He has duked it out against top stars in the company already and fans can’t get enough of him. Punk also teased some great matches for the future.

CM Punk won the AEW World Championship at AEW Double Or Nothing after defeating Hangman Page. This move was met with a lot of cheers but also some boos as well.

While speaking during the post AEW Double Or Nothing media scrum, CM Punk named some opponents he wants to defend his title against. He named the likes of Kazuchika Okada and Bryan Danielson, among others.

“I think [Kazuchika] Okada, [Hiroshi] Tanahashi, [Will] Ospreay, guys like that I’m looking forward to stepping into the ring with. AEW talent — I always think number one with a bullet is going to be Bryan Danielson. I’ve never wrestled Jon Moxley — I’ve wrestled Dean Ambrose, so that’s an interesting match up. There’s still guys on my list that I’ve never wrestled with, Jungle Boy, Ricky Starks. I could probably finish out my career wrestling FTR every day for the rest of my life, and it could be different and fun every single time. Will Hobbs is another guy that I think has all the potential in the world.


We’ve got a really stacked roster. It’s almost a crime that we can’t do everybody justice at once, but I think we’re getting there with baby steps. I think we’re learning. I think we make mistakes, but instead of dwelling on it and punishing other people or ourselves, I think we move on and try to learn from things. But Bryan Danielson will probably be the first guy that comes to mind. Very selfishly, I’d love to wrestle him.”

CM Punk also stated that only nobodies dislike him in AEW. Kazuchika Okada himself also believes he’ll face CM Punk in AEW. We’ll have to see when the match will happen now.
