Punk came out at the top of the second hour to a tremdeous reaction from the crowd and spoke on several issues, including All Out pay-per-view opponent, Darby Allin, and explained what this match was all about.
He also teased a potential AEW debut for Daniel Bryan. When the crowd was chanting “YES! YES! YES”, Punk responded by saying that’s somebody else’s schtik and the crowd might need to be a little more patient.
Punk is scheduled to wrestle Darby Allin in his first match back at AEW All Out, a pay-per-view event, on Sept. 5 in Chicago.
