CM Punk Sets Sights On AEW World Championship

If there was any ambiguity last week, CM Punk made it abundantly clear Wednesday night on Dynamite: He’s coming for the AEW World Championship.

Punk battled and toppled Max Caster (who got off a fantastic Z-pack dig at Punk in his pre-match rap) in Dynamite’s opening match, then did an in-ring interview with Tony Schiavone afterward. Tony asked the obvious question about what Punk’s “I want the belt” gesture last week meant, and the Second City Savior didn’t mince words.

Punk made it clear that he’s dialled in on the AEW World Championship, whether the champion is Adam Cole or Hangman Adam Page. He talked about how he’s going to get grayer and have more scars before his time in All Elite Wrestling is up, but he also pledged to be AEW World Champion before he’s done in the company.

Since debuting in AEW last year after a seven-year absence from professional wrestling, Punk has only lost one match. Punk was just outside the AEW top five rankings heading into Wednesday, though picking up his fifth singles win of the year might move him into the conversation.
