CM Punk made his triumphant return to pro wrestling on August 20, 2021. The Second City arrived in front of a jam-packed United Center in Chicago, Illinois during Rampage: The First Dance.
CM Punk took to Instagram on Saturday to reflect on his AEW debut. The AEW World Champion posted a heartfelt note, thanking all the fans who made his return to the squared circle possible.
One year ago began the best year of my professional career. Too many great moments, not enough space to post all the great pics. Rekindled passion, made new friends, reunited with old ones. Can’t stop smiling, won’t stop until the wheels fall off. Thank you most of all to all the fans who made it possible. I’m having the time of my life, as there’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that’ll be a home run. And so that’ll make it a 4-0 ballgame.
Punk will square off against Jon Moxley for the Undisputed AEW World Championship inside the Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio, next Wednesday on Dynamite.
Many fans believe the match should’ve main evented All Out. It was also reported that Punk vs. Mox is still very much the plan for the September 4th pay-per-view event. Keep reading Ringside News for more.
