CM Punk recently responded to a handful of tweets from fans who were speculating that he'll be at Double Or Nothing this weekend.
Double Or Nothing is almost upon us. A wrestling event that could prove to be one of the biggest for more than two decades. Not in terms of attendance or even viewership, but in regard to what it means for the business. If Double Or Nothing goes well this Saturday, then AEW will well and truly be off to the races.
The show has a great mix of instantly recognizable talent and new wrestlers many fans will have never even heard of. Wrestlers like Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks will be joined by Nyla Rose, Cima, and Kip Sabian. There's also a very real chance that some big unannounced names will turn up. Many fans have their heart set on seeing Jon Moxley, whereas others have their hopes set even higher.
By that, we, of course, mean CM Punk. There is speculation that Double Or Nothing will be the event that marks Punk's return to wrestling. More than five years after the former WWE Champion appeared in a ring. Well, as long as you don't include when he may have been the man under a mask at an indie show recently. There has been so much AEW speculation that Punk has decided to respond to it.
That a real person?— CM Puck🏒 (@CMPunk) May 22, 2019
Punk's first reply to a fan read "OMG AEW CONFIRMED." He then replied to a fan who wrote they'd love to see him wrestle Luchasaurus "that a real person?" In the last of his three replies, Punk tweeted a "wrong" gif to someone joking that he's the one under the Luchasaurus mask. We're not sure whether the wrong refers to him being Luchasaurus or the "wouldn't be the first time" the fan signed off with.
If you are one of those fans that has their heart set on seeing Punk at Double Or Nothing, we have a little bit of bad news. The Second City Saint is already booked elsewhere. Punk is scheduled to call the action at the Cage Fury Fighting Championships in Coachella. It is only 300 miles away so he might pull a Jericho and do both somehow. Unlikely, but we can dream.
