Former 2-time AEW World Champion CM Punk was scheduled to return to AEW programming next month on the debut episode of Collision, but Punk was pulled from the press release for Collision.

Warner Bros. Discovery issued the following statement to ComicBook:

“CM Punk is not affiliated with TNT’s AEW Collision.”

PWInsider then reported that backstage producer Ace Steel was expected to return to AEW along with Punk, but decision was then made to not bring Steel in, and this put Punk and AEW on the “opposite sides of the discussion” regarding his return on Collision.

Steel is a very good friend of Punk. He got fired last year for being involved in the backstage fight at the All Out 2022 pay-per-view.

AEW Collision’s premiere was scheduled to take place at the United Center in Chicago, which would still be the case if Punk agrees to show up.

However, if Punk isn’t coming back, then Tony Khan will have to find a different location as he thinks fans would expect Punk to show up if the show was taking place in Chicago (which is what they did for AEW Rampage: The First Dance in 2021, where Punk debuted).

According to Raj Giri, Tony’s team sent a legal letter to Punk over the weekend which stated that he needs to comply with his contract, or they will take further legal action.

Tony will announce the location of the first episode of Collision on this week’s Dynamite.
