During the What Happened When podcast, Tony Schiavone revealed to us that the CM Punk promo at AEW Rampage was not scripted at all and that no one knew what he was going to say, Punk himself. didn’t know what he was going to say either.
“I told him about his class and he said, ‘I really don’t know, I’ve thought about so many things to say, and I really don’t know what I’m going to say. We just knew the only thing he was going to bring up was Darby preparing for the pay-per-view match.
From there, we had no idea what he was going to say or how he was going to say it. And, to be honest with you, he didn’t let us know. I really felt like he was really, really, really thinking about it hard and it had been weighing on him for quite some time. “
So the CM Punk promo came straight from his heart and it felt because it’s one of the best we’ve heard in recent years. Punk lost none of his talents as a speaker, and he also had an audience for his cause. Also with some attacks on WWE, although it’s fair game and he’s been waiting for this for years now.
This is just the beginning, because Punk has been here for a very long time and it starts tonight with his first appearance on the AEW Dynamite show, the schedule for which you can find right here.
