CM Punk has challenged his long-time rival MJF to a Dog Collar Match at AEW Revolution.
The February 16th episode of AEW Dynamite opened with a cross-legged CM Punk in the ring with microphone in hand.
Although CM Punk was defeated by MJF in his home town of Chicago on February 2nd, the heated rivalry between the pair is far from over. Following the defeat, on last week’s episode of Dynamite, Punk teamed with Jon Moxley to to defeat FTR and earn the chance at a rematch, at the time of his choosing, in the match of his choosing.
Sat in the ring, Punk opened by saying “My name is CM Punk… and I’m better than you.” He followed this up by running down his impact on the wrestling business. The former WWE star then turned his attention to MJF, saying that he would face him again at AEW Revolution on March 6th.
As for the match stipulation, this required a little more thought. Punk wondered whether a Cage Match suffice, but eventually turned down the idea. The former World Champion said that seeing as MJF wanted to be Roddy Piper so bad, he’d face him in a Dog Collar Match, as he pulled a collar from a box in front of him asking MJF to be his Valentine.

At this, MJF came out to the top of the ramp seemingly gearing up to respond but he was interrupted by Punk. The straight-edge star produced the famous photo of himself with MJF, when MJF was a child. Punk continued to mock MJF who left without responding.
