From being an in ring performer to being on the commentary team, the man has his contributions on all. As a company, AEW has its rating skyrocketed, while as fans, we love watching him. But probably the most benefited of all are the wrestlers backstage.

Having a seasoned wrestler like Punk around other young wrestlers can only be good for the latter. His experience, not only in wrestling but also in other sports, makes him a must have person backstage.

Punk will be on the comms tomorrow, sitting back as his feud with Team Taz ignites. After defeating Darby Allin at AEW: ALL OUT pay-per-view, the fans are interested in what he will do next.

As an upcoming wrestler, having Punk around means having a mentor to guide you. Wrestlers like Jungle Boy can learn a lot from just talking to Punk, let alone wrestling with him. AEW has a gem in their hands which they know how to utilize. WWE made a mistake by letting this gem slip through their fingers.

While AEW is building its future, WWE is also on the same track. They have just launched their NXT 2.0, which promises bigger and better things for the former Black and Gold brand.
