During the post-AEW All Out media scrum, CM Punk unleashed scathing tirade against Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks. His scathing remarks caused significant damage to his reputation within AEW and sparked a subsequent brawl that only exacerbated the situation. This outburst has had ongoing consequences for Punk and has caused ripples within the pro wrestling community. That being said, it seems Punk could be back in a couple of months.

Since the All Out event, CM Punk has been absent from wrestling due to an injury to his triceps and underwent surgery to address it. He is currently recovering from his injury and has been making good progress in that regard.

While some fans are not excited about the possibility of his return to AEW, others are eagerly awaiting the return of the Second City Saint to the ring. With ratings dwindling for AEW, fans really want to see him back.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about CM Punk’s status in AEW. Meltzer noted that CM Punk could be brought back within the next couple of months.


“They are lacking in that babyface position something fierce. They had a shot with MJF, obviously they did the double-cross on that. And MJF was great as a heel tonight, but they don’t have ‘the guy’.

Punk’s not gonna be the guy either. I know some people might say, ‘Well Punk’s coming back’… Punk may come back. He will be available to come back if they want to use him in a couple of months. It’s not like it’s so far in the future. And of course if they were to bring Punk back, that opens up a lot of other issues that we can talk about another day.”

Tony Khan still has no plans to release CM Punk from his contract. AEW is carrying on without Punk, even nixing him from the cover of their upcoming Fight Forever video game. We will have to wait and see if Punk will return to AEW television eventually.
