CM Punk has been away from AEW since the infamous “Brawl Out” incident with The Elite and Ace Steel. Now Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks are nearing a return to the company, Punk’s future is still up in the air and a Hall of Famer may have some tea to spill.

On his To Be The Man podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair speculated that CM Punk is done with AEW after hearing some inside information. He was informed by an AEW employee, who he didn’t name, that CM Punk is not coming back to the company.

“I guess they’re just trying to figure out a way to buy out his contract, he’s [CM Punk] not coming back, and I’m just told this by AEW people, that The Young Bucks are already back, or somebody told me that they were back, you know when you get a bunch of wrestlers together you hear a bunch of stuff.

Flair also mentioned that it was just hearsay. Whoever told him that information could be wrong, since The Young Bucks have not officially returned to action, despite what Flair was told.


Punk is currently not competing due to a shoulder injury that will keep him out for a minimum of six months. Ringside News will monitor the future of CM Punk when more official information is available.
