CM Punk can Punk anyone including Sasha Banks

WWE fans are eagerly looking forward to this week’s SmackDown with the main event featuring women’s champion Becky Lynch against Sasha Banks. The title challenger took to Twitter to promote the upcoming fight, and she curiously made use of a phrase that belongs to CM Punk. Sasha shared a tweet with the phrase: “It’s Clobberin time.” 

CM Punk had something to say, and he reverted with a tweet of his own. The AEW wrestler targeted Sasha and clearly stated that the real clobbering time happened over the course of the last weekend on AEW Dynamite.

CM Punk’s return to professional wrestling has been a huge win for AEW. The former WWE Superstar had no intentions to ever step back into the squared circle. His failed foray into the world of MMA had seemingly closed all the doors of ever returning to television.

However, the fateful inception of AEW changed everything for CM Punk and for wrestling fans. The 40-year-old stated that his passion for professional wrestling once again returned because of AEW’s top-notch product. The new promotion caters to the hardcore audience and adults who left the scene because of the PG era.

His addition to the budding roster of young talents opens doorways for many interesting matchups. Perhaps Tony Khan can pair him up with a tag partner or maybe an AEW title is in the books. The possibilities are endless and that is arguably the most exciting aspect.
