As we previously reported here on eWn, a rumored matchup between CM Punk and KENTA will not be taking place this Sunday at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door II.
However, AEW wrestler Danhausen has now stepped up to wrestle Punk this weekend. Danhausen tweeted,
“Danhausen will face Pepsi Phil at the foreboding door ppv event but Danhausen is still injured so he has to lay down and let Danhausen pin him.”
Punk and Danhausen share a good relationship outside of the ring. The former AEW World Champion even gifted Danhausen an issue of ‘Amazing Fantasy Issue #15’, the first appearance of Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man.
