How CM Punk’s Debut in AEW Broke the Internet
CM Punk’s debut in All Elite Wrestling sent shock waves throughout not only the world of wrestling, but throughout sports and entertainment. He debuted in the second episode of AEW Rampage, in his hometown of Chicago. He came out to one of the loudest reactions in wrestling history. People who were in attendance for the show have described the ovation for him as being louder than a jet.
For seven years, wrestling fans have chanted his name in hope would return to wrestling. Twitter was flooded with tweets of Punk’s debut. Every major sports account reposted the official clips of his debut along with fan art of his return. “Its Clobberin’ Time”
CM Punk made his name around independent promotions before joining the WWE in 2005.
The world of sports did not know it yet, but he would go on to win multiple world championships and have a prominent role on WWE television. However, CM Punk unfortunately grew tiresome of not getting the main event spot, even during his monumental 434 days as WWE Champion from 2011-2013. Eventually, he walked out of the WWE after the Royal Rumble in 2014. Punk left due to various reasons, such as his potential feud with Triple H at that year’s WrestleMania. As well as WWE doctors medically clearing him to wrestle even though he was still hurt.
His return to professional wrestling set off a set of thrilling and exciting events that has made wrestling a sport one must see again. His return had people excited for his potential matches with AEW’s stars. Fans and wrestlers voiced their opinions on who Punk should face first. The last time wrestling was this interesting was when WCW Nitro went head-to-head with WWE Raw.
Punk returning has sparked interest in the new wrestling company, All Elite Wrestling. Following his debut in AEW, Adam Cole, Ruby Soho, and Bryan Danielson also debuted at AEW’s ppv “All Out”. These debuts, along with CM Punk’s, have brought mainstream eyes to a wrestling company that had just started in 2019. It’s a great time to be a wrestling fan.
