• BREAKING NEWS: CM Punk’s 1st Match In AEW Announced
Tonight’s AEW Rampage kicked off with “Cult Of Personality” music hitting and former WWE Champion CM Punk making his AEW debut.
Punk jumped into his hometown crowd and hugged fans and family members at ringside.
Punk has officially signed a contract with All Elite Wrestling.

Punk then took at shot at WWE by implying that they don’t produce “Professional Wrestling” by saying the following:
“August 13, 2005, I left Professional Wrestling. August 20, 2021, I’m back.”
August 13 is the date Punk left Ring Of Honor in 2005.
Punk said he’s back for the young talent in AEW, which he wishes was there with him 10 years ago.
Punk then called out Darby Allin, who was in the rafters with Sting. Punk said he’ll face Darby Allin at AEW’s All Out 2021 pay-per-view on September 5th.
Punk said Darby does a lot of dangerous stuff, but nothing is more dangerous than facing CM Punk in Chicago.
