Follwoing the announcement of Punk’s in-ring debut at AEW, All Out’s ticket prices shot up. According to Bryan Alvarez, “Following CM Punk’s debut, the average secondary market ticket price for All Out is currently $993.00. Not a typo.”

When the rumors first broke, they jumped up from about a $75 entry price to a $200+ entry price. On the official website, the tickets are sold out, for now, hence the price hike in reselling.

It goes on to show that Punk still has the similar star power that he did back in his prime 10 years ago. Despite being out of touch with the squared circle for seven years, Punk managed to drive the audience wild.
