Wrestling fans still love CM Punk and expect him to come back to the business. Even though he came close to the business when he appeared on WWE Backstage as a guest host, that was too brief to whet the fans’ appetite. Recently, the ‘Second City Saint‘ was invited to AEW by a prominent AEW Superstar.
CM Punk is pretty active on Twitter, and he tweets pretty much what he wants. Punk recently put up a tweet and normalized a common fear – going to the dentist. And as always, CM Punk’s tweet drew some newsworthy reactions.
AEW Wrestler Dr. Britt Baker saw Punk’s tweet and responded by inviting him to ‘The Waiting Room,’ a studio segment she regularly hosts on AEW Dynamite. For those who don’t know, the ‘Dr.’ in her name isn’t just a ring name; Britt Baker is actually a practicing dentist.
This response from Dr. Britt Baker garnered attention from wrestling fans. She delivered the invitation, but CM Punk did not respond to her as of this writing. Will he accept it? We will have to wait and see.
At the current stage, if CM Punk even appears on an indy show, it’ll be enough for fans. They just want to see him in the ring!
CM Punk’s name has been thrown in with AEW several times since the promotion’s inception. The biggest rumors came in during the build to AEW All Out 2019. Why? The show was going to be in Chicago, Punk’s hometown. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, and we’re still waiting for a Punk debut.
The ‘Straight Edge Superstar’ revealed in an interview that he might consider a return if the story is interesting and the money is right. Considering his popularity, his addition to the AEW roster will be heavy on the purse for Tony Khan, but it could give them massive results.
All AEW has to do is offer the right money and storyline to CM Punk and he will make his much anticipated return to pro wrestling. AEW recently brought in Sting, so a CM Punk return is not outside the realm of possibility. We just hope Punk isn’t 61 when he makes his AEW debut.
