What response will CM Punk receive from the AEW fanbase once he is back on TV?
Punk will return to AEW programming as part of the premiere of AEW Collision on June 17, over nine months after appearing at the infamous All Out 2022 pay-per-view event.
The former AEW World Champion’s comments on the post-All Out 2022 media scrum proved to be divisive, with many of the opinion that he shouldn’t be allowed to return.
Speaking on his “Extreme Life” podcast, Hardy was curious as to what kind of response Punk will receive from the fans. He 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.”
In addition to the June 17 premiere, Punk is also being advertised for the August 12, episode of AEW Collision.
