CM Punk on potential AEW dream match with Sting

Last updated

AEW star CM Punk recently discussed the possibility of him having a dream match against WCW legend and short-time WWE Superstar, Sting.

Speaking at a media scrum, Punk revealed that he is very much thinking about the potential dream match between himself and Sting at some point in All Elite Wrestling.

‘We were never in the same company at the same time” CM Punk began. “We’re two different generation wrestlers, and you just never thought it was possible, and now, it is. And that’s kind of how I feel about the entire groundswell of AEW as a whole.

“You got me, and Darby, and Sting in a ring, and it’s legitimately three different generations and the knowledge of wealth he brings. It’s a bucket list item now. I think, for sure, down the line, we’re probably going to tag. That feels like there’s something there” CM Punk continued.

‘There’s real, organic moments here. Him coming out and shaking my hand, we didn’t talk about that. That wasn’t a planned thing. He came out, and he did it, and before I shook his hand, I looked and was kind of like, this means something to a kid like me.

“And he said, ’˜It means something to me too,’ and that’s wild to me. That’s the playground we have here where we could do all this stuff that you didn’t think was ever possible’ CM Punk concluded.

Although it certainly wouldn’t be an in-ring classic at this point, the potential of CM Punk vs Sting is certainly intriguing on paper and could be a decent draw for All Elite on PPV.
