Revolution, the next PPV of the AEW scheduled for Sunday 7 March, promises to be one of the most anticipated ever. In addition to Sting's debut in the ring, after six years of inactivity, and the Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match between Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega, we will also discover the identity of the big-name promised by Big Show to Dynamite.
An important talent with Hall of Famer status, who has signed a multi-year contract. The first rumors have gone crazy on the net: some have thought of Kurt Angle, some of Christian, some even of Batista and CM Punk. The former wrestler from Chicago promptly denied his involvement and threw a jab at Tony Khan's Company, giving them valuable advice: "I think they should focus on the talent they have at their disposal."
A dry and outspoken statement, which has seen many fans agree with him. Even the recent debut of Big Show, for example, was received negatively by some because of space it could take away from young people on the roster. His former colleagues, however, above all Mick Foley, praised his decision to leave WWE.
CM Punk was very close to signing with AEW
It's not the first time CM Punk has been on everyone's lips when it comes to AEW. In fact, since the birth of the Company in 2019, many were expecting his debut and he himself admitted that there were negotiations, but the plans never materialized.
Perhaps for money or a lack of passion, CM Punk has decided not to put his combat boots back on and enjoy his retirement, even after his unsuccessful UFC experience. Also in past interviews, the former WWE Champion had advised AEW to focus on improving their product, without constantly digging at the Stamford-based Company.
We will see if Tony Khan and his companions decide to listen to him. Meanwhile, eyes on Sunday and the mysterious superstar. Punk recently revealed five AEW stars that he would love to face if he ever made his way to the company.
This statement confirmed that he has watched the product, and he has an eye on AEW's young guns. He mentioned that he'd like to face Will Hobbs, Darby Allin, Brian Pillman Jr., Ricky Starks, and Jungle Boy. What do you think of CM Punk's advice to AEW? Sound off in the comments section below.
