CM Punk’s debut in AEW had been speculated for several weeks and the fans had been anticipating his arrival in the company. This also marked his return to pro-wrestling after seven long years. He recently spoke about the moment called his return as the greatest night of his career.

During an interview with Kap & J. Hood show on ESPN 1000 Chicago, Punk simply stated that his AEW debut might have been the greatest moment, and night, of his career.

CM Punk believes that his debut could not have been more perfect as it was set up as the “worst kept secret.” It was the fans, who even elevated the significance of his debut. Though the debut was not advertised the fans could still speculate it and the venue was sold out for the event. This indicated the connection that AEW have with their fans.

CM Punk said: “Just the entire night couldn’t have gone more perfect, you know? The way we set it up as the ‘worst kept secret,’ selling out the United Center on a rumor that I was going to be there, never announced, never advertised, it shows the connection to the fanbase that AEW has. They get it. They want to be involved, they want to be entertained, they want to go to shows and have a good time.”

He added: “It was a perfect storm, perfect night. The way I debuted, everybody being super-positive backstage, I met so many new people, having my family with me, I could go on and on. It was the perfect night and the perfect moment for so many reasons, and I’m just talking personally. Publicly, I think it’s a smashing success.”

CM Punk is set to take on Darby Allin at All Out pay-per-view and he is also scheduled to make his first appearance at this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite.
