CM Punk’s return at the Survivor Series Premium Live Event became a significant event in pro wrestling history for many reasons. After all, no one expected him to return to WWE considering how he left the company in 2014. He followed it up with a promo on RAW last week – to mixed responses. That said, Eric Bischoff believes Punk’s return made the Devil storyline in AEW irrelevant.
The biggest storyline in AEW right now is undoubtedly the Devil mask storyline featuring MJF. However, many fans feel that the storyline has been dragging on for far too long and it has killed interest.
While speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff stated that CM Punk returning to WWE at Survivor Series last month made The Devil storytime irrelevant in a big way.
“I think once Punk showed up at Survivor Series, whoever’s behind the mask is going to be a popcorn fart,” he said. “It’s going to be something that people are going to hopefully forget very quickly. It’s already gone on too long. Shocked that it’s still going. Again, if it’s Jungle Jack Perry, phew –- horribly bad.”
MJF and Samoa Joe will square off against members of The Devil’s faction on Dynamite this week. We’ll have to wait and see who will be revealed as The Devil.
