• CM Punk Not Expected To Return To AEW
After winning the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley in the main event of All Out 2022, CM Punk took shots at Hangman Page, Young Bucks & Kenny Omega during the post show media scrum.
Later, he started a fight backstage, which resulted in everyone involved getting suspended.
Punk also got stripped of the AEW World Title, along with Th Elite being stripped of the AEW World Trios Titles.
On last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, Chris Jericho defeated Claudio Castagnoli to win the ROH World Championship.
During this episode, Ian Riccaboni talked about the top stars that have won the ROH World Title over the years and Punk’s name wasn’t mentioned.
According to PWTorch, Punk isn’t expected to return to All Elite Wrestling:
“I think this is noteworthy but not surprising that he excluded CM Punk’s name as he talked about some of the biggest names who have held the Title. That’s a bit of a tell.
I am not expecting CM Punk to wrestle in AEW again.
I’m not saying it’s 100 percent sure thing but everything is pointing in the direction of some sort of buyout of his contract. We’ll learn more eventually about that situation.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 22, 2010) – Old School WWF Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2010, we lost Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Giant González (Real name: Jorge González) at the age of 44 due to complications from diabetes and heart issues.
During the 1988 NBA Draft, he joined the Atlanta Hawks but a knee injury eventually kept him from actually playing for the team.
Ted Turner, who owned the team and was also the owner of World Championship Wrestling offered Jorge a job as a professional wrestler and after a year of training, he debuted as El Gigante in 1990.
In 1993, Vince McMahon signed him to a World Wrestling Federation contract, where he was now known as Giant González.
González was the only WrestleMania opponent of The Undertaker, during the famous 21–0 undefeated streak, who did not lose via pin fall or submission, but only by disqualification.
† REST IN PEACE GIANT GONZALEZ
