Tonight’s go-home AEW Rampage episode for AEW All Out 2021 PPV featured Darby Allin vs. Daniel Garcia with CM Punk on commentary.
Before the match begins, CM Punk comes out to join the commentary team, but not before jumping into the first row of the crowd and getting offered a beer. Darby Allin walks over to the commentator’s desk and gets into the face of CM Punk before heading to the ring.
On commentary CM Punk sells his in-ring return at All Out. He calls Darby the heart and soul of AEW the same way Sting was for WCW.
Meanwhile, in the ring Darby jumps off to an early offensive lead. Things head out to the floor and we see Darby thrown backwards over a nearby setup table and his head bounces off the steel guard rail on the way down. Punk jokes that their match might be off now.

At the end of the match Allin hit Garcia with a Code Red and pins him for the 1-2-3. After the match, 2.0 gets in the ring and begins attacking Darby and Sting. CM Punk, who is at the commentator’s desk, stands up and then walks down and goes after 2.0. Allin then hits both members of 2.0 with a suicide dive. Allin gets right up and has a staredown with CM Punk as the show goes off the air.
