The Young Bucks react to the AEW signing of CM Punk

Last updated

AEW Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks recently took to social media to react to the unveiling of CM Punk as an official AEW star.

‘Thank God we started AEW & are responsible for bringing CM Punk back to wrestling!’ The Young Bucks recently wrote in their Twitter bio.

Initial metrics seem to indicate that Punk coming back to pro wrestling has been an absolutely massive success. AEW’s YouTube channel has uploaded two videos of Punk making his debut on AEW Rampage, and these have drawn massive numbers.

Punk is scheduled to be appearing on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. The Young Bucks will likely be on hand to witness the first AEW Tag Title Eliminator match between the Varisty Blonds and The Lucha Brothers.
