One of the favourite WWE superstars, CM Punk could be seen in upcoming AEW’s Double or Nothing flagship tournament as the American wrestler Cody Rhodes gave a hint at Starrcast event about the return of WWE Champion in pay-per-view tournament. The star-studded event of All Elite Wresting will kick start on May 25, 2019 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and this year one of the largest digital platforms of sports FITE TV has gained the rights to broadcast the event.
The Double or Nothing event will be headlined by star wrestlers Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega and the winner of the bout will straightly face the winner of the Casino Battle Royale in the roster. Notably, Punk is scheduled to commentate UFC Fight Pass event at Double or Nothing night which means he would not be battling in first pay-per-view event of AEW.
Earlier in January 2014, the 40-year-old walked away from the ring followed by various issues regarding injuries. After stepping down from the company, the American tried his luck in marshal arts also but was not able to quit wrestling completely. Recently, the wrestler appeared in last month’s MKE Wrestling. He made a shocking appearance in that event as he was donning the mask to confuse the WWE Universe and suddenly hit a vintage G.T.S on Daryck St. Holmes which made every WWE fan completely shattered.
The executive vice president of All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Cody Rhodes said on the joining of CM Punk at the event, “I would say what I would say to Punk, wrestling fans never gave up on CM Punk. It’s an unbelievable connection that he accrued for the fan base and himself. So I can say for that reason that the door remains open for CM Punk at all times”.
Moreover, the grand event of Double or Nothing will feature many power-pack feuds under one roof. It will feature the nail-biting clashes between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho, Cody and his brother Dustin Rhodes, Young Bucks and Lucha Bros and Hangman Adam Page and PAC. Not only this, Britt Baker, Nyla Rose and Kylie Rae will also compete in the glitzy tournament to clinch the powerful title in a three-way match.
