CM Punk proved all doubters wrong after becoming the new AEW World Champion at AEW Double Or Nothing. Fans had high expectations from his reign, but that is no longer the case. Tony Khan also refused to comment on Punk’s return at AEW All Out.

As seen on a previous episode of AEW Rampage, CM Punk revealed that he is injured. This shocked fans as they believed another Summer Of Punk was going to happen.

Punk eventually underwent surgery for the injury as well. While speaking during the Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor post-show media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan talked about CM Punk’s return to in-ring action. He also refused to comment on Punk potentially returning at All Out in his hometown of Chicago.

“He’s doing well in his recovery. He was at [San Diego Comic-Con] today. I didn’t see his panel, we obviously saw that Bryan Danielson announced his return there. I don’t know exactly what [Punk said at the panel] but I know he’s doing well in his recovery. I don’t want to scoop anything he might have said at the Comic-Con panel, but he’s doing well.

“He’s not behind in his recovery. I wouldn’t want to step on anything [he’s doing] but I haven’t spoken to him since he did the panel. But going into the panel, he’s on track and we look forward to a great unification match when he’s back, whoever the Interim Champion is.

I can’t rule it out but I also can’t promise. I don’t want to say anything when it comes to somebody’s recovery from a real serious injury. He’s really battling hard to get back as soon as he possibly can.”

It also won’t be long until CM Punk’s return. We will have to wait and see whether The Second City Saint will make his return during AEW All Out or not.
