The hatred between the two individuals is something that every AEW fan knows; for weeks, Kingston called Punk out for being an obnoxious person and not giving chances to younger wrestlers.

However, all of it was laid to rest when these bitter rivals met tonight. In a hard-hitting match where jabs and kicks were thrown at each other with every passing minute, Punk took some time off to take a dig on his old rival – John Cena.

Back in WWE, Cena and Punk had one of the grand matches in decades, and the two individuals crossed pats multiple times and produced a classic match every time.

Tonight on Full Gear, towards the end of the match, a bloodied CM Punk built momentum while using Cena’s move sets, which had two shoulder tackles and one slam, before eventually, setting up Kingston for a ‘Five Knuckle Shuffle.’
