During his arrival last Friday in Chicago, CM Punk told us he wasn’t going anywhere. He would use his Wednesdays, Fridays, and four AEW PPV weekends a year to tell us fans everything we want to hear.
It’s a very small sample size, but he hasn’t missed any of those dates yet.
After his Rampage debut on Aug. 20, Punk appeared for an in-ring interview with Tony Schiavone on this Wednesday’s Dynamite. Nothing was promoted for Rampage tonight (Aug. 27)... but with only a little more than a week to go until Punk’s first match since 2014, AEW is giving both him and his opponent Darby Allin some microphone time on TNT at 10pm ET.
Neither Punk nor Darby Allin’s “comments” showed up in the spoiler report for tonight’s show, which was taped Wednesday in Milwaukee. So expect these to be backstage interviews or hype videos.
Fine by me. I think it’s gonna be a long time before you hear me say, “nah, I’m good on CM Punk wrestling content.”
