News broke on Wednesday morning that CM Punk was in talks to return to pro wrestling after departing from the WWE in 2014. The initial report from Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp was that AEW was "the most likely landing point." While this does not confirm Punk will sign with the Jacksonville-based promotions, he has stated in previous interviews the AEW interests him more than returning to WWE. The news instantly sent wrestling fans into a frenzy on Twitter, as fans started dream booking the former WWE Champion arriving in AEW and having matches with its top stars. You can see some of the reactions in the list below.
Should Punk go to AEW? Or will WWE somehow manage to entice him into returning to the promotion? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments!

Go Out on a High Note
Honestly when you think about how CM Punk is 42 and probably thinking about his legacy while he can still deliver at the level he’d want, a run in AEW where everything he does will be insanely hot would be the perfect way to cap off his career.— Garrett Kidney (@garrettkidney) July 21, 2021
