AEW star Darby Allin appeared to be ‘calling out’ CM Punk during a recent promo on AEW Dynamite, hyping the upcoming episode of AEW Rampage on TNT, August 13th.

‘I’ll be in Chicago,’ Darby Allin said during the promo. ‘You know, I’ve been around a lot of men in this world that have laid claim to how they’re the greatest.”

“There is only one place to really prove that ’” right here, in AEW” Allin continued. “Even, if you think you are the best in the world.’

The Best In The World line had fans in the crowd chanting CM Punk, and AEW cameras cut to show the crowd in attendance at Dynamite chanting as such.
