Following the news on Saturday that Tony Khan and AEW have terminated the contract of CM Punk following his physical fight with Jack Perry at AEW All In 2023 in London, England this past Sunday, KENTA took to Twitter to react. He tweeted,
“WELCOME BACK MY GO 2 SLEEP.”
WELCOME BACK MY GO 2 SLEEP

For those unaware, the original plans for AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door II called for KENTA to face off against CM Punk. KENTA made it well known that he wanted a big payday for the match to happen, but it never took place. It was said that CM Punk wasn’t “thrilled” with the idea of working with KENTA.
