Ever since his abrupt exit from WWE in 2014, a return to the squared circle was always mooted for CM Punk. A failed attempt at UFC and a sub-par acting career later, Punk did make a long-awaited return. However, the return came in an AEW ring, albeit to one of the loudest pops. A raucous reception by his hometown followers kick-started Punk’s AEW career with a bang. And it all went quite well for the wrestler from the start until September this year, when he got himself suspended for his actions. Punk recently took a dig at himself during an MMA event.
