CM Punk dresses up as a jobber to accept Samoa Joe’s challenge for All In

Last week’s episode of AEW Collision ended with Samoa Joe choking out CM Punk for not answering Joe’s challenge for a match at All In on Aug. 27 in London’s Wembley Stadium.

On tonight’s episode, Punk didn’t waste any time giving Joe an answer.

Joe was booked in a match against a masked jobber named the Golden Vampire. But things quickly went awry when that jobber got the jump on Joe and hit him with a GTS. He unmasked to reveal that it was CM Punk in disguise:

CM accepted Samoa’s challenge for All In, and the match was made official. Punk’s “Real World Championship” will be at stake.
