CM Punk: Paul Wight heavily hints at debut on AEW Rampage

Last updated

AEW Dark: Elevation commentator Paul Wight recently appeared on ESPN’s SportsNation. The former WWE Superstar discussed several topics during the show, including the reported imminent arrival of CM Punk to All Elite Wrestling.

‘Tonight is a night on Rampage, where in the future, people are going to say ’˜Hey do you remember when?’ Paul Wight began.

‘We’re in Chicago, United Centre, sold out. There’s a lot of rumors going around, a lot of scuttlebutt. There’s an opportunity tonight for someone to make an appearance on Rampage here in AEW that will literally knock the wrestling world on its keister” Wight continued, referencing CM Punk.

“This is one of the biggest, anticipated events that I can remember in a long time.”


‘I was trying to think about it today, what is it compared to? Is it compared to Hulk Hogan going to WCW? Does it compare to the nWo? Stone Cold Steve Austin glass breaking Austin 3:16? What kind of an impact, if the rumors are true, will this have on the wrestling business” Wight added.
