CM Punk has been making headlines over the last few days as it’s been reported that the former WWE Champion is in talks with All Elite Wrestling. Neither Punk nor AEW have confirmed the reports, but AEW seems to be his likely destination.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the belief backstage in WWE is that CM Punk has signed with AEW. There are said to be a number of things going on behind the scenes that would indicate Punk has signed.
No one in All Elite Wrestling has confirmed the signing, and it’s not expected to be confirmed until the company is ready to go public with an announcement of that magnitude.
It’s also being reported that WWE wasn’t interested in CM Punk, but their stance on Punk may have changed now that AEW is interested in him. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
