CM Punk Names Several AEW Stars He Would Work With If He Returned

CM Punk

During a recent Twitter Q&A session, Phil ‘CM Punk’ Brooks named five current AEW stars that he would like to work with if he ever returned to wrestling.

I see five guys that have potential. Hobbs, Darbs, Pillman, Starks, Jungle Boy. And that’s not to say there are others, but those guys stick out.

Will ‘Powerhouse’ Hobbs, Darby Allin, Brian Pillman Jr, Ricky Starks and Jungle Boy were those AEW stars named by the former WWE Champion – an interesting mix of size and athleticism!

During the fun Q&A, Punk also suggested that if he ever fought Stone Cold Steve Austin it “would’ve been short. GTS 1, 2, 3“, said how happy he was to see Edge “get a second act” and was jealous of the Rated R Superstars abs.

Another titbit shared was the location of CM Punk’s ring gear, his answer “it’s in storage” quick to cause a small flutter of Twitter users to suggest he’s keeping it for the ‘inevitable return’.

Can you imagine CM Punk lifting Will Hobbs for the GTS? How reckless would it get between Punk and Darby? And could Punk contain himself from singing along to Jungle Boy’s entrance theme should the two ever meet? Only time will tell.

Punk in his response to potential opponents in AEW is of course quick to say that there are others, but the five listed stick out to him. The question now remains….Who are the others?!
