WWE Superstars “Secretly” Reacted to CM Punk’s Return to Wrestling


The AEW has been making some major moves ever since the organization debuted in January of 2019. Since then, the league’s been racking up viewer ratings and exciting signings. While some pro wrestling fans have criticized AEW for basically “sniping” former WWE talent, it’s certainly helped Tony Khan’s organization to grow larger than any other wrasslin’ brand in recent years.

CM Punk’s return to action prompted a bunch of reactions from WWE superstars.

Punk certainly wasn’t the most athletic wrestler in the business, nor did he possess a particularly impressive or intimidating physique.
