In a surprising move, a top AEW star has hinted at potentially using their old WWE theme song.

Throughout the years, AEW has seen several former WWE stars join their ranks, and while they usually undergo some changes in their presentation, including theme music and overall appearance, one wrestler might be bringing back a familiar tune.

CM Punk took to his Instagram stories earlier today and dropped a hint that he might use his old WWE theme song, “This Fire Burns” by Killswitch Engage. This song was synonymous with Punk during his first five years in WWE before he famously transitioned to “Cult of Personality,” which has become an iconic part of his persona.

Punk’s potential use of “This Fire Burns” has sparked a lot of excitement among fans, wondering if it might be a one-time special appearance or a permanent change. The tease also added an extra layer of anticipation to his upcoming match on the August 5 edition of AEW Collision, where he will defend his “Real” World Championship of AEW against Ricky Starks, with the legendary Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat serving as the special guest referee.


As AEW continues to be a platform for wrestlers to showcase their skills and connect with the audience in unique ways, the possibility of hearing Punk’s old theme song once again has brought an extra dose of nostalgia and excitement to the upcoming event.
