CM Punk has done one thing for sure: Keep himself in the media. CM Punk has been rumored to making his return to All Elite Wrestling next month in Chicago on the debut episode of AEW: Collision which is set to take place on Saturday, June 17th, 2023 at the United Center the same building CM Punk made his return to Professional Wrestling after being out of the business for 7 years.
It has been reported that the former Two-time AEW World Champion will be a featured star on the AEW Collision show, but will still make appearances on AEW Dynamite. The Collision show will serve as an AEW brand split, putting stars who seemingly can not get along with CM Punk on opposite shows of him.
It has been rumored that CM Punk has at least mended fences with Chris Jericho after the two had what is being referenced as a ‘Productive Meeting' in recent weeks, however, the same allegedly is not the case for CM Punk and The Elite.
In a report from Dave Meltzer, Dave goes on to say he was told by a higher-up within All Elite Wrestling that CM Punk and The Elite are ” No closer to a resolution than they have been, but things are more reasonable now”. What the entitles exactly we are unsure of. CM Punk and The Elite are unable to approach one another due to ongoing legal issues that stemmed from the incident last September at All Out. Whether CM Punk wants to apologize, or The Elite are willing to apologize remains unknown as of now.
Reports from Meltzer also have surfaced that an individual close to Punk has stated that apologies should happen and CM Punk should be the first to do so, but not the only one to do so.
