As previously reported, former two-time AEW World Champion and WWE Champion CM Punk made his shocking return to the WWE immediately following the Men’s WarGames main event matchup at this past Saturday’s 2023 Survivor Series: WarGames Premium Live Event from Chicago. This comes after AEW released CM Punk due to his physical altercation with Jack Perry prior to the main card of their All In PPV Event last August 28 from Wembley Stadium in London, England.
Shortly after this incident, Punk had a heated confrontation with AEW President and CEO Tony Khan and he even threatened to quit the company. During the incident, monitors reportedly fell on Khan and the AEW President even revealed that he feared for his safety while addressing the situation at Collision six days after the incident and hours after Punk’s release went public.
Khan appeared on BBC West Midlands to promote AEW All In 2024 tickets going on sale and it was during the interview where he was asked about Punk’s return to WWE at Survivor Series. According to Khan, he can’t talk about that as it is something he can’t legally talk about, nor does he think it’s the time or the place.
This is what Tony Khan said:
“Can’t talk about that, nor do I think it’s the time or the place, but I appreciate you asking and I’m very excited about AEW All In at Wembley Stadium.” “Not to dodge or duck your question. It’s just something I can’t legally talk about.”
