For those who don’t know, back in September 2022, an alleged brawl took place at the post-All Out that involved Punk, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks.

Also, who can forget that infamous media scrum? It’s obvious, Punk is unofficially on a long leave!
Now, as per Fightful Select, CM Punk is eager to make his return and has been in touch with AEW. He has also expressed he’s ready to work with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks.
