Finally, we’re glad that the rumour of CM Punk making an in-ring return has turned out to be true. To fans’ surprise, the show ‘Rampage’ started with Punk making his pro-wrestling return. Well, it took 7 f*cking years!
AEW Rampage opened with Punk chants all over, and why not? The show scheduled in Chicago is bound to witness reception for the ‘voice of voiceless’. As a cherry on a top, Punk made his smashing return with his theme song, Cult Of Personality. As expected, the crowd went crazy and received a thunderous response. It could possibly be the biggest pop we heard in recent times!
In his usual style, CM Punk walked down the ramp, soaking all the energy from the crowd. He hugged a few lucky fans and even jumped into them. And yes, he delivered a pipebomb saying ’20th August 2021, I’m back’. He even promised ice cream bars for the crowd of the night.
Watch it below, CM Punk receiving a monstrous ovation:
