In recent interviews and during his promo on the Sept. 1 Dynamite, CM Punk has talked about how some people will get tired of him real fast.
But speaking for myself, I’m not there yet. And Tony Khan and the AEW braintrust clearly think folks like me are the majority (and that three weeks of using pro wrestling’s prodigal son on your shows in the build up to his first match in over seven years is just good promoting), because Punk will be back on our screens this Friday (Sept. 3) Rampage.
Punk’s All Out opponent, Darby Allin, will be in action on the show. Allin faces Daniel Garcia, one of the three men who mixed it up with Darby, Sting & The Best in the World on Wednesday night... so don’t be surprised if Punk’s promo fits into that match somehow.
Also set for Rampage...
- Malakai Black vs. Lee Johnson in a match set-up after the main event of last week’s Dynamite.
- Kris Statlander vs. Rebel & Jaime Hayter, as Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. negotiated a chance for her henchwomen to soften up the #1 contender before Statlander challenges for Baker’s Women’s title on Sunday.
- TNT champion Miro will appear in advance of his All Out defense against Eddie Kingston.
Ready to Rampage? And for more Punk?
