His significant other has ties to one of those companies. Britt Baker is not only All Elite Wrestling Women’s World champion - she’s also already been fantasy booking mixed tag matches for the couple in AEW.

So when we get an update on Cole from Baker, you know she has some inside information.

Then you remember that Britt’s a dentist (as if she or AEW would ever let us forget it), and that all pro wrestlers have at least a little troll in them...

On Twitter, Dr. Baker, D.M.D. gave her favorite patient a clean bill of health:

I can confirm Adam Cole has no cavities.

Very excited to see what Adam Cole’s teeth do next.

CM Punk Explains What Event Helped Him Consider Joining AEW

ComicBook.com 31 August, 2021 - 03:25pm

CM Punk appeared on ESPN's SportsNation on Tuesday and further opened up about why he chose to sign with All Elite Wrestling rather than return to the WWE. Punk had already confirmed in interviews that he and AEW president Tony Khan had been speaking for years, but the thing that finally convinced him to give the promotion a closer look was how it handled the tragic passing of Brodie Lee. The former TNT Champion passed away at the age of 41 back in December after dealing with health issues for several months.

"You know, one of the big things that turned me onto them and made me consider going there, was you know... unfortunately we, the wrestling world, lost Brodie Lee last December," Punk said (h/t Wrestling Inc.). "His sickness and everything that came with it was known in the company, but they kept it so secret. Wrestlers will always tell you, 'Oh the boys, we're a big family, we care about each other in the wrestling business...' And none of that is entirely true, but to see everyone in the company band together just to keep a secret about somebody's health, I was blown away by that. I was blown away that it wasn't plastered all over every single website, and it was just kept secret. That made me go, 'Well there's something to that locker room.'"

After debuting on the Aug. 20 episode of AEW Rampage, Punk went into detail in a post-show media call about his decision to finally sign with the Jacksonville-based promotion.

"I'll go ahead and spoil that, I've been talking to Tony for probably a year and a half," Punk said. "Some girls are easier to get into bed, I am not. I need to be wined and dined. And that's not, 'oh I need more money and less dates.' It was literally just talking to Tony, getting to know him. The more people that he employed that I knew, I'd ask questions, they'd tell me things. I've been in the game for a few minutes, so I've (promoters before). I've seen, I think I've tracked it since the downfall of ECW, every six months to a year somebody pops up (saying), 'I have money, we're going to have TV, we're going to use all the ECW guys.' This is not a slight on Tony at all, it's more of a slight on me being a paranoid, neurotic, anxiety-ridden, very careful person."

"And I wasn't in a hurry. The pandemic kind of helped me out. I knew I couldn't debut if there was no people in the building. I always say timing is everything, and there were a lot of happy accidents along the way that made this possible," he added.

6 current and former AEW Champions CM Punk has never faced

Sportskeeda 31 August, 2021 - 12:11pm

CM Punk made his return to the wrestling ring at The First Dance event on AEW Rampage to thunderous applause. Fans were thrilled to see the former WWE Champion join AEW and get back to wrestling.

After the dust settled, many fans began to point out once again that most of AEW’s top performers are wrestlers who have already competed in rival companies. However, there are still many top AEW stars who have never faced CM Punk one-on-one.

There are also several former and current AEW Champions who have never been in the same ring as CM Punk. This shows that there are many new challengers for The Best in the World to take on in his new journey as an AEW star.

Keeping that in mind, take a look at the six current and former AEW champions who have never faced CM Punk one-on-one.

CM Punk debuted at AEW Rampage and immediately left a mark on the company. Punk was ready to get back to the ring again and decided to handpick a man who he has never faced before.

Darby Allin, the former AEW TNT Champion, is just 28-years-old. Yet many think of him as one of the greatest performers of all time. Punk decided to roll the dice and pick Darby Allin to be his first opponent in AEW.

AEW President Tony Khan was a guest on a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. Khan opened up about CM Punk's in-ring return at the All Out pay-per-view and why Allin was chosen as his first opponent.

.@CMPunk's been doing a lot of talking about @DarbyAllin lately, about time they actually meet 👀 Tonight on #AEWRampage at 10/9c pic.twitter.com/94cCiSKBe2

CM Punk will face Darby Allin for the first time in his career at All Out. The two men have never faced each other before, and it’s great to see that the veteran is ready to take on some new faces.
