CM Punk’s monumental return to WWE has sent shockwaves throughout the wrestling industry, and it appears to have had some behind-the-scenes repercussions, especially in AEW.
In terms of which WWE brand Punk will be working on, while there has been speculation about him being a “free agent” able to work on both RAW and SmackDown, the current plan is for him to be part of the Monday Night RAW roster.
Punk’s surprise return at Survivor Series has also thrown a wrench into WWE’s plans for the post-Survivor Series episode of RAW, according to Fightful Select.
