Ever since his arrival in All Elite Wrestling, CM Punk has wrestled primarily on AEW Rampage or pay per views. He had yet to have an actual match on AEW Dynmaite, which is AEW’s primary show.
That was until Wednesday night, when Punk took on another former WWE and NXT wrestler in Bobby Fish, who was famously part of the NXT group The Undisputed Era.
The crowd in Boston was absolutely loving the match between the two, as you could hear the chants of “LETS GO BOBBY!” and “CM PUNK!”
CM Punk picked up his fifth win with AEW with the GTS, also known as the “Go to Sleep.”
Punk’s wins in AEW include Darby Allin, Powerhouse Hobbs, Daniel Garcia, Matt Sydal and now Fish, which improved him to 5-0.
Thus far, Punk has used his star power to help promote new talent as well as the established stars in AEW and hasn’t demanded to be put in any main events or title matches, although it seems like it could be a matter of time before Punk gets put in the main event scene.
