Tony Khan Comments On CM Punk’ return: “I Expect CM Punk To Connect With The Crowd”

CM Punk is expected to make his return during AEW’s new show Collision which will air on June 17. CM Punk was last seen at AEW All Out 2022. It is rumoured that he was involved in a backstage altercation at AEW All Out, so he was suspended by AEW and there’s also other rumour that he was injured during AEW All Out, so he took some time to recover from injury.

Tony Khan recently gave an interview to Barstool Rasslin’ where he talked about CM Punk’s return, he believes CM Punk would connect with fans.

“It’s very exciting. CM Punk’s been out injured since All Out, and he had a triceps injury in the main event match. We have not seen him in a long time. I’m very excited about his return to the ring. He’s one of the biggest names in AEW, he’s a top star. He’s one of the biggest names in all of wrestling.

“Well, I think it’ll be very exciting to see how the fans react, but I expect a very positive reaction, particularly in Chicago for the first episode. I think then, going forward, CM Punk’s one of the most popular wrestlers in the world, so certainly he’s gonna get a great reaction.

“Depending on who his opponent and the type of reaction he’s trying to get, I expect CM Punk to connect with the crowd as well as anybody in the entire pro wrestling business. He had an amazing connection with the fans, and I think that’s part of his longevity and his mystique is his amazing connection with the crowd. CM Punk’s a really great wrestler, and I’m very excited to have him back in AEW, starting this Saturday night on TNT on AEW Collision.” (H/T: SEScoops)
