- CM Punk makes his return to wrestling. Punk comes out to a massive pop. He gets down on his knees on the stage and takes in the "CM Punk" cheers. As the music plays on Punk gets to his feet very fired up and asks for more for more from the crowd. He slowly takes it in as he makes his way to the ring. He ends up hugging fans and ends up jumping into the crowd for a moment. "You guys really know how to make a kid feel like Britt Baker in Pittsburgh."


Punk said he didn't know what he wanted to say, he was going to say what he felt. Punk says he's got the time, Wednesdays, Fridays, PPVs, he's not going anywhere. Crowd chanting "CM Punk!" a lot. Punk says if what he did years ago, if he let anyone down, he wants them to know he wasn't going to get healthy mentality or physically if he stayed in the place that got him six in the first place. Punk says it's hot in here and he takes off his jacket to show off his new AEW shirt. Punk sits cross legged in the ring to tell a story.

He says he was in a place and had to leave, it was ROH (crowd chuckles). Punk says he honed his craft there, and cried when he left, but knew he had to. Punk said that's when he actually left pro wrestling, but today he's back. Punk says he's back because he wants to face the young talent who has the passion he did as a younger wrestler. He has a few scores to settle as well. Punk ends up calling out Darby Allin.


We see Allin and Sting up in the rafters to listen. Punk says he's seen Allin get beaten up and tossed all over the place, but he's tough. Punk says he wants to help Allin, and there's nothing more dangerous he can do than wrestle CM Punk, except wrestle CM Punk on All Out! "I'm back." Punk finishes with a lot of people waited for him for a long time, so when people make their way out, get an ice cream bar on him. Crowd was loud throughout the segment, some crying, lots of "CM Punk" chants.
