• CM Punk Not Showing Up In Person On Tonight’s AEW Rampage?
As we have reported before, former WWE Champion CM Punk is rumored to make his All Elite Wrestling debut on tonight’s episode of AEW Rampage.
AEW President Tony Khan is hyping up tonight’s show as “historic” and something fans won’t forget for a long time.
While Tony hasn’t directly announced CM Punk’s arrival, he has made it pretty evident that it’s going to be him.
Here’s what he tweeted last night:
“I’m betting that excitement from the most anticipated announcement in @AEW history at #AEWRampage The First Dance will build up through All Out on PPV. We’ll make new fans + we’ll welcome dormant wrestling households worldwide back into the fold; a new era in #AEW begins tomorrow.”

In the above tweet, Tony mentioned that an “announcement” will be made tonight at AEW Rampage, which has begun speculation that Punk might not appear in person on tonight’s show, and might just get announced for the All Out PPV next month.
If that happens, we’re pretty sure a lot of fans will be left disappointed in Chicago.
20,000+ Fans are expected to be in attendance at the United Center for tonight’s AEW Rampage.
