This is the first time Punk will work a PPV after staying away from the wrestling industry for years. Moreover, Allin is the first pro-wrestler he challenged after making his AEW debut at AEW Rampage. Now, all of Chicago is waiting to see what happens at All Out!

However, Darby Allin has clarified his stance on the match. He doesn’t care if Chicago cheers for him or Punk. This time, he’s in the match for himself. He’s in the match to show the fans who he is and what he’s become, and how he’s capable of working the ring without having to take guidance from CM Punk.

Honestly, if he defeats Punk at All Out, that’ll be his ticket to the top of the AEW roster.

AEW All Out will not only be about CM Punk

First point to note, CM Punk’s AEW debut broke records in terms of ratings, show ranking, and viewership. Numerous individuals across the industry tuned in to watch the man return to the ring.

It was an epic moment in AEW’s history, and that day even WWE couldn’t keep up with AEW’s soaring ratings. Unfortunately, the AEW ratings dropped after Punk completed his Dynamite debut as well. So, to boost ratings, a new plan was put in place.
