Right off the bat, Punk said that he is back to stay. He clarified that he will not be like the rest of the part-timers in the industry and promised that will show up every Wednesday and Friday.

He even cut his promo in his signature ‘Indian sitting pose’. One thing that stood out in his promo was his motive to face the talented roster of AEW.

CM Punk challenges Darby Allin and Sting

During the segment, Punk subtly fired shots at the WWE and said that he is back inside the ring to face the wrestlers he should have faced ten years ago.

However, Punk called out Darby Allin to a match at AEW All Out on September 5; coincidentally, both Allin and Sting were listening to Punk from the rafters.

Punk praised Allin and said he’s seen him get beaten up and tossed all over the place, and jump from top ropes. Punk says he wants to help Allin, and there’s nothing more dangerous he can do than wrestle CM Punk in his hometown Chicago.
