In the ever-evolving landscape of professional wrestling, the firing of CM Punk from AEW has sent shockwaves through the industry. The controversy surrounding his backstage altercation with Jack Pery at the All In event led to his abrupt departure, leaving fans and pundits alike speculating about his next move.
Now a free agent, the Best in the World has the wrestling world at his feet, with rumors of a potential return to WWE swirling. However, there’s one man in the NWA who’s not shying away from the challenge of facing the iconic Punk in the squared circle. That man is none other than EC3, the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion.
In an exclusive interview, EC3 expressed his interest in a clash with Punk, citing their shared Chicago ties and recognizing Punk’s prowess in the ring and on the microphone. He acknowledged that such a showdown would be a fantastic challenge and could generate immense intrigue among wrestling fans.
EC3’s comments offer a glimpse into the potential matchups that could materialize in the post-AEW era of CM Punk’s career. While a return to WWE remains a possibility, it’s uncertain how the tumultuous history between Punk and Triple H might affect such a reunion. As EC3 suggested, exploring opportunities in promotions like Impact Wrestling or NWA could be a viable path for the Second City Saint.
