New AEW signee CM Punk made his in-ring debut for the company at this past weekend’s AEW All Out PPV event from Chicago, Illinois.
CM Punk was not the only former WWE and ROH star to make an appearance on the show, as both Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson debuted for the company on the same night.
Speaking at a post-show media scrum, Punk revealed whether he had been speaking to Danielson ahead of the event and how the company is dealing with surprises in general.
“I think we’ve been doing a good job of keeping poorly kept secrets,” CM Punk admitted. “So I think the fans here just want to have a good time, so it’s not so much about trying to shove somebody in the back door, draped in a curtain and hide from everybody, but I think we do a really good job with surprises.”
“I talked to him [Bryan Danielson today,” CM Punk revealed. “That’s it. I didn’t want to reach out to him and be like, ‘I know you’re coming brother,’ because I knew I would see him today, and I would talk to him. And I waited till he was done doing his thing and gave him a big hug, and it’s just exciting. It’s exciting to be here.”
