The next few days will be very exciting for wrestling fans, but tonight all eyes are on AEW Rampage and the potential debut of CM Punk in All Elite Wrestling. A moment that Paul Wight thinks is one of the most anticipated events in a long time.
This morning, Paul Wight was a guest on SportsNation to discuss All Elite Wrestling, and you just knew talks of CM Punk’s rumored debut tonight on Rampage would come up. Wight would neither confirm nor deny Punk’s arrival but questions what kind of impact this moment could have on the future of the wrestling industry.
“There’s an opportunity for someone to make an appearance on Rampage here at AEW that will literally knock the wrestling world on it’s keister,” Paul Wight said. “This is one of the biggest, I think, anticipated events that I can remember in a long time. I mean, I was trying to think about it today, like, what does it compare to? Does it compare to Hulk Hogan going to WCW? Does it compare to the nWo? Stone Cold Steve Austin and the glass breaking with Austin 3:16? What kind of an impact, if the rumors are true, will this have on the wrestling business? Because I can neither confirm nor deny…but what kind of an impact tonight’s Rampage will have on the wrestling industry for the future.”
