Tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TNT featured yet another appearance from the company’s newest superstar, CM Punk, who hyped up his ALL OUT showdown with former TNT champion Darby Allin by putting him over as one of the best young talents in the industry today.
During Punk’s promo the fans in Milwaukee began a YES chant in anticipation for the Chicago Savior’s return the ring after 7 years, a phrase that has been synonymous with Daniel Bryan, who his also rumored to be appearing for AEW since his WWE departure. As the fans continued the chant Punk interrupted them by saying, “That’s somebody else’s schtick and you might just need to be a little bit more patient,” a tease that caused a massive crowd pop.

Punk immediately shifted the focus back to Darby Allin, but many noticed the tease as soon as it happened.
