CM Punk’s Potential AEW Return Date Reported

CM Punk’s Potential AEW Return Date Reported

CM Punk’s future with AEW has been up in the air since All Out last year due to his comments at the post-show media scrum, and later the physical altercation with The Elite. Now though, with him believed to be ready to return to the ring, a date and venue have been reported by Fightful Select for such an event. With the June 21st episode of Dynamite, which takes planes at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, looking the most likely.

We were told shortly before the announcement of Chicago at Wintrust Arena that the June 21 episode of Dynamite would be interesting, and a date to look out for. What we’ve learned since then is as of April 13, the working plan has been for CM Punk to return at that show, or at the very least around it.

Punk is an incredibly popular performer who has the ability to alienate colleagues quickly. Therefore, his return to AEW will need to be managed carefully due to it being understood a large majority of the locker room is against his comeback. Nevertheless, it is ultimately Tony Khan’s decision, and with the money Punk can make him, it seems a no-brainer to bring him back. And with it being in Chicago, it will be a very raucous crowd.
