Former WWE Champion CM Punk has named who he believes to be the best promo in wrestling today.
Responding to a fan question on social media, Punk named AEW’s Eddie Kingston as the man with the most impressive skills on the microphone.

Kingston who joined AEW in 2020, has been out of action since being left laying by The Bullet Club on Dynamite.
Elsewhere during the online Q&A session, Punk refused to rule out the possibility of sharing the ring with Samoa Joe one more time. The pair memorably clashed in Ring Of Honor, during the early 2000’s, competing in a trilogy of matches which are still revered by fans to this day.
Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer gave the second match in the series a five-star rating. It was the first match in ROH history to receive that accolade.
In a recent interview CM Punk also discussed his own wrestling future. Punk who has not competed inside a wrestling ring since the 2014 WWE Royal Rumble, said that wrestling is “not my world anymore.”
“I think the right combination could maybe be figured out, but it’s also not for me to figure out. It’s not my world anymore,” Brooks said. “I’m certainly not Hulk Hogan, where I’m going to show up somewhere and like, ‘no, this is how it’s going to be.’ The wrestling world doesn’t necessarily need CM Punk and that’s absolutely fine. Everyone seems to be doing great. I don’t know, it’s like flavors of ice cream. I walk into an ice cream shop one time and I’m like, ‘Oh, that seems like a good flavor. Give me two scoops of that.’ It’s just gotta be the right time, right place, right situation.”
In regard to a return to WWE, Triple H recently revealed the last time that he spoke with Punk about the subject. The Game explained that it would take CM Punk wanting to come back to make it happen, but as of 18 months ago that is yet to happen.
