Within the aftermath of the brawl following AEW’s All Out PPV, it was maybe finest if CM Punk by no means returned to wrestling. He ought to’ve stayed as a hypothetical, a “what if?” that followers mused over years to come back.
However the actuality is he got here again.
He got here again white scorching like a burning star reaching supernova—and like a star reaching its supernova, he burned out simply as shortly. Punk’s return lasted a yr. And what a yr it was for him. It appeared like he was in a a lot happier place. You would see it in his face and listen to it in his voice each time he got here out and spoke to the followers.
He gave a teary interview throughout one of many scrums, saying how Bret Hart by no means obtained a second likelihood and wished he might’ve given his second likelihood to Bret. Punk knew he was lucky. But, he squandered it due to his satisfaction, his ego, and his self-righteousness.
CM Punk is the modern-day King Lear. A paranoid man who sees threats out of skinny air, mates plotting his downfall, and enemies at each nook. He’s additionally wrestling’s Kanye West when it comes to public meltdowns and forcing folks—like Chris Jericho—to go on file saying that they’ll by no means work with him.
The declare that EVPs (The Younger Bucks) leaked data to wrestling media about Punk having one thing to do with Colt Cabana’s disappearance from the Darkish Order and AEW has been confirmed false.
The declare that Larry—Punk’s canine—had his tooth loosen due to the Bucks kicking the door in has been confirmed false.
Nothing Punk’s camp has stated concerning the ALL OUT brawl has had an oz of reality to it. The extra they attempt to body it in Punk’s favor, the extra injury it’s inflicting Punk’s popularity and credibility—the bit that he has left anyway.
I was a CM Punk fan. Now, I’m not so positive.
He disrespected the corporate that gave him his comeback. He disrespected Tony Khan, a person who not solely gave him that comeback however believed in him to be the highest man and produce the corporate to a different degree of recognition. Punk failed.
Punk returned after seven years, however in hindsight, he ought to’ve stayed gone. He ought to’ve stored using on his horse into the sundown like a cowboy on the finish of each western movie.
The lyric to this track is apropos:
And it’s the celebrities
The celebrities that shine for you
And it’s the celebrities
The celebrities that mislead you
—by way of glass by stone bitter
