The long-awaited arrival of CM Punk in AEW has ignited fervent anticipation among fans, who now eagerly speculate about his first rival at the upcoming Collision event. As per Sean Ross Sapp’s insights from Fightful Select, numerous potential opponents and storylines have been deliberated.
Among the ideas gaining traction is an intriguing alliance between Punk and AEW World Tag Team Champions FTR, pitting them against the formidable duo of Jay White and Juice Robinson from Bullet Club Gold.
The feud between FTR and Bullet Club Gold ignited when FTR valiantly defended Ricky Starks from a ruthless assault by White and Robinson during Double or Nothing. In a retaliatory strike, White and Robinson ruthlessly targeted Harwood and Wheeler in a recent episode of Dynamite. The forthcoming rematch between White and Starks intensifies their heated rivalry, with the added twist of FTR and Robinson being barred from ringside, fanning the flames of their explosive conflict.
CM Punk’s return has fans on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting his first feud. Will it be a fiery showdown with Jay White and Juice Robinson, a dream match against Chris Jericho, or a battle of legends with Samoa Joe? The anticipation is palpable as wrestling enthusiasts brace themselves for the explosive clash that will mark Punk’s long-awaited comeback.
In a recent interview, the seasoned WWE veteran, Matt Hardy, didn’t hold back as he shared his unfiltered opinions on the much-anticipated comeback of CM Punk to AEW. Known for his outspoken nature, Hardy didn’t shy away from expressing his thoughts on Punk’s potential impact on the promotion. Wrestling fans worldwide eagerly await Hardy’s insights, expecting a mix of excitement, surprise, and perhaps even a touch of controversy.
Matt Hardy said, “CM Punk is a huge star, and him coming back is a big deal. It’s going to be very interesting to see the kind of reaction he gets. When the Young Bucks were in Chicago, they were getting booed out of the building. It’ll be interesting to see Punk’s reaction, considering how smart the AEW fans are.” (an article from sportskeeda.com reported)
