CM Punk finally made his long-awaited debut on AEW programming on tonight’s episode of AEW Rampage from the United Center in Chicago.
The debut had been teased by both the company and the straight edge star himself over the past several weeks, with Darby Allin making allusions to the ‘Best In The World.’
It is expected that CM Punk will be in a match at the AEW All Out PPV event on September 5th, also in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
Punk would enter to his iconic Cult of Personality theme song by Living Colour. The crowd in attendance was absolutely rabid and the straight edge star was visibly emotional. Punk would jump in the crowd and celebrate to an unbelievable reaction.
