As we have noted before, AEW Officials were discussing CM Punk vs. KENTA for this month’s AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door 2023 pay-per-view.

KENTA recently noted that he’d like to have this match and would like to get paid a lot for it too.

Now, it looks like this match won’t happen this month as KENTA tweeted the following:

“Kenta vs Punk is never going to happen.”

The storyline of this potential match is simple – Punk took KENTA’s GTS finisher and Punk is now more synonymous with the move than KENTA.

Punk returned this past Saturday on the debut episode of AEW Collision, and said that he’s the rightful AEW World Champion because nobody pinned or submitted him to win the Title.

In the main event, Punk teamed up with AEW World Tag Team Champions FTR to defeat ROH TV Champion Samoa Joe and Bullet Club Gold (Jay White & Juice Robinson).

Punk pinned Robinson to pick up the win for his team after hitting the GTS.

Below is the current match-card for Forbidden Door 2023:

AEW World Championship Match: MJF (c) vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi
