CM Punk Makes Shocking Return at All Elite Wrestling | AEW Rampage: August 20, 2021
CM Punk Makes Shocking Return at All Elite Wrestling!!!!! After seven years away from the ring, Punk returned Friday night with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), appearing on its television show "Rampage" in his hometown of Chicago. The promotion announced Punk, one of the most popular stars in pro wrestling through the 2010s, signed with AEW on social media. AEW never announced Punk, whose real name is Phil Brooks, would appear on the show but teased it on several occasions. The rumors and reports led to AEW, an upstart promotion started in 2019, selling out United Center for its biggest live attendance ever. At the top of the show, which aired on TNT, Punk's well-known entrance music, "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour, hit the speakers and the crowd, which was already chanting for him, got to its feet. What followed was one of the loudest and most sustained reactions ever in pro wrestling. Punk came down the entrance way, hugged fans and even dived into the crowd at one point. This has been such a massive weekend so far for both AEW and WWE as far as returns this was just the start to what is becoming a very memorable weekend for the wrestling world!!!!
