CM Punk’s highly anticipated return to AEW has been generating significant buzz among wrestling fans. The former world champion is set to make a splash on the first-ever episode of AEW’s Collision, which will take place at the United Center in Chicago, Punk’s hometown. Punk will join forces with FTR to take on the trio consisting of Jay White, Juice Robinson, and Samoa Joe in the main event.

Punk’s return to the ring marks his first match since his victorious encounter with Jon Moxley at back at All Out in 2022, where he reclaimed the AEW world title. However, his reign was cut short due to an injury sustained during the match and the subsequent backstage altercation with The Elite.

Building on the excitement surrounding Punk’s comeback, AEW has confirmed his appearance on the following episode of Collision, scheduled to take place in Toronto on June 24th. This announcement solidifies earlier reports that Punk will be part of all upcoming Collision dates, adding to the anticipation surrounding the episodes.

The Toronto episode of Collision will serve as the final installment of AEW programming leading up to the Forbidden Door 2 pay-per-view event on June 25th. As the countdown to this highly anticipated event continues, AEW fans can expect thrilling in-ring action and unforgettable moments, with Punk’s involvement adding an extra layer of excitement.


Tickets for the Toronto episode of Collision are now available for purchase.

As the wrestling world eagerly awaits Punk’s return to the ring, AEW continues to captivate audiences with it’s impressive roster of talent.
