Punk carries the moniker of being the ‘best in the world’ and he has indeed proved that from time to time. However, his time off from the sport raised some eyebrows.

Bouts against Powerhouse Hobbs, Daniel Garcia, and Matt Sydal all helped him greatly to regain his composure. In tonight’s AEW Dynamite, Punk truly seemed his usual self and showcased flawless wrestling and immense in-ring prowess that he is well renowned for.

Roman Reigns and Eric Bischoff may have reacted negatively to Punk’s return, but it doesn’t seem like those comments are bothering him much. He seems to be in the best mental headspace and is truly enjoying his time and creative freedom with the young promotion. Unlike the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, Punk is not chasing after the grandest prize in the promotion just yet.

This is truly the best time to tune in to the weekly dose of action that AEW guarantees. The storylines of the show indeed need a bit more touch-up, but the professional wrestling and bouts are second to none. If the promotion manages to keep this up, then in no time will it become the next big thing in the ecosystem.
