CM Punk is a huge figure in the professional wrestling world, and his return to the industry in 2021 after a seven-year hiatus was iconic for many. He made his debut in AEW and has remained a controversial figure in the industry. Despite his popularity and success, some fans and critics view him as divisive due to his outspoken opinions and past controversies. It seems AEW blocked his appearance on this week’s episode of Dynamite.
This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite kicked off with The Young Bucks being transported to the hospital via ambulance after suffering a brutal attack. Notably in the moments filmed in the parking lot area, fans saw that there were a lot of things stacked against the AEW production truck.
Any appearance of CM Punk, which included he side of the production truck, was quite literally blocked as there were tables and a large piece of cardboard covering his face in the scene.
CM Punk has been absent from AEW television since All Out last year. CM Punk has teased his return to AEW and ROH in recent weeks. CM Punk and The Elite have not mended fences while he remains on the shelf after suffering a triceps injury. We will have to wait and see when Punk will return to AEW television.
