Jim Cornette reveals why CM Punk's AEW debut was the biggest moment of his career

Sportskeeda 22 August, 2021 - 08:28am

Legendary manager Jim Cornette recently stated that no wrestler could ever create buzz and anticipation like CM Punk did when he returned to professional wrestling on Saturday night.

Jim Cornette, well-known for his critical remarks over AEW, was impressed with how CM Punk's return angle panned out.

Speaking on his podcast, The Jim Cornette Experience, the wrestling manager credited CM Punk's special mystique for keeping a low profile and lessening appearances helped him make his return the biggest of all time. He added that John Cena and The Rock wouldn't be able to recreate the same magic, given how frequently they show up in Hollywood:

Most of the time, wrestlers make cameo appearances when they're partially retired. CM Punk stayed away from any wrestling promotions for over seven years.

CM Punk himself revealed that WWE made him mentally and physically sick and if it weren't for fans and AEW higher-ups, he wouldn't have stepped foot inside the squared circle.

The upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite will be a delight for fans as CM Punk will be making his first appearance on the show. Given the brief staredown between Darby Allin and CM Punk at Rampage, both men could meet face to face in the ring next week.

There couldn't have been a better first opponent for the former WWE superstar than Darby Allin.

Jim Cornette's surprising reaction to CM Punk's AEW debut

Sportskeeda 22 August, 2021 - 01:14am

CM Punk's AEW debut on Rampage on Friday night broke the internet and it looks like wrestling legend Jim Cornette, who has been an outspoken critic of All Elite Wrestling in the past, was also a fan of the segment.

Punk's return on Rampage marked the first time he was back inside the squared circle since walking out of WWE in early 2014 (apart from a couple of rumored indie appearances under a mask). He is now set to wrestle his first AEW match at the All Out pay-per-view in September against Darby Allin.

Speaking about the show on his podcast, The Jim Cornette Experience, the legendary manager called CM Punk's AEW debut "perfect". Cornette said that how it went down was actually even better than how he himself would have booked Punk's return:

At the end of his promo on AEW Rampage, CM Punk announced that he had a special treat for the fans who had waited patiently for him to return to pro wrestling for the last seven years.

He informed the fans at the United Center that everyone would get a free CM Punk ice-cream bar on their way out of the arena that night.

While speaking on the post-Rampage media scrum, Punk also hinted that more AEW signings could be on their way in. You can check that out HERE.
