A seismic shift is on the horizon in the world of professional wrestling, as CM Punk is set to make his grand return to All Elite Wrestling (AEW) for the Collision premiere later this month.

One name, KENTA, has been repeatedly linked to Punk for years due to the ongoing rivalry over the Second City Saint’s alleged appropriation of his finisher.

KENTA’s recent cryptic tweet “I’m free on June 17th” suggests that he’s ready to confront Punk in the ring, finally settling the score’‹.

Could CM Punk wrestle on the debut AEW Collision?

In the wrestling world, where words are as mighty as actions, KENTA’s tweet is a blatant challenge.

However, whether Punk will take up the gauntlet and step into the ring for a match on Collision’s inaugural episode remains an intriguing unknown’‹.

Punk vs KENTA at Forbidden Door?

Meanwhile, other wrestling worlds are colliding, sparking excitement among fans. Ahead of the AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door 2 pay-per-view event, top NJPW star Will Ospreay has named WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins as his most sought-after opponent for a true “forbidden door” match’‹’‹.

Ospreay expressed his admiration for Rollins, citing the WWE superstar’s immense popularity and his ability to create “magic” in the ring. He believes a match with Rollins could elevate both wrestlers to a new stratosphere’‹.

Could we see a Forbidden Door match between Punk and KENTA? It would certainly be a match that fans have been hoping for, but it remains to be seen whether or not the company goes in that direction.
