Get ready to hear “Cult of Personality”. Or at least get ready to hear it according to this report from Ringside News. They have a source that states that CM Punk has signed officially with All Elite Wrestling. According to their source:
Punk signed on this morning!” Obviously, there is a lot of excitement over this deal. It was not confirmed when he will debut, but we were told “Punk will be on TV nearly every week.
That last part is a bit intriguing. We don’t know how many times he’ll wrestle for the company or what his role will be. However, they do have a blueprint for this already. Sting is a great path for AEW to follow with Punk. Sting is on TV almost every week, but he doesn’t wrestle every week. So they save the matches for the big shows and big moments. Punk could (and probably should) follow a similar path.
Also according to their report, Punk will have similar control over his character to Daniel Bryan.
We don’t know his debut date, but All Out is coming up from Chicago, where CM Punk is from.
We’ll have to see how this story develops, and obviously nothing is 100% confirmed until we get word from Punk and AEW on the matter. So take this one how you will.
So, what do you think of CM Punk signing with AEW?
