CM Punk is arguably the biggest name in wrestling who isn’t active in the sport these days. Given that he hit a legendary status WWE during his anti-authority run as the company’s top champion. His exit from WWE was rather unceremonious, however, there are rampant rumours that the former champ will be making a return, but this time it will be for WWE’s biggest modern-day competitor: All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
Let us take a closer look if Punk’s return to action is indeed going to happen:
