CM Punk has implied that All Elite Wrestling’s ‘hall of fame worthy’ star set to sign their deal at AEW Revolution is not him.
Paul Wight, AEW’s newest addition to their commentary team made his own debut on AEW Dynamite. In an interview with Tony Schiavone, Wight teased that he had a major scoop that would shock the wrestling world. The former Big Show then promised a “hall of fame worthy” competitor would be becoming All Elite officially at the show on Sunday.
Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has been the subject of rumours about his wrestling future since he walked out on WWE in 2014. Taking to Twitter for a Q and A, Punk stated:
“Let’s try this again.
Q&A time! Use hashtag #askpunk and no, it’s not me.”
Let’s try this again. Q&A time! Use hashtag #askpunk and no, it’s not me.

The implication being that “it’s not me” refers to AEW’s promised surprise signing. The wrestling world has been abuzz with speculation as to who the surprise star might be.
Inside The Ropes’ lead writer, Gary Cassidy has put together a list of possible names that could be making their AEW debut on Sunday, March 7th. After Punk’s tweet, however, there could be one name that we can cross off that list.
Also on Dynamite, Shaquille O’Neal and Jade Cargill made their in-ring AEW debuts. The duo would defeat Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet when Cargill pinned Velvet. Rhodes would hit a massive crossbody on the NBA legend putting him through two tables on the show.
Paul Wight and Tony Schiavone will be the commentary team for AEW’s new show, AEW Dark: Elevation.
