It has been confirmed that CM Punk will be back in action at Full Gear, and he’ll be in for a fight!
After a chaotic confrontation on the latest episode of AEW Rampage, it has been announced that CM Punk will take on Eddie Kingston at AEW Full Gear.
The two men have been on a collision course after a less-than impressed Eddie Kingston interrupted a backstage interview featuring CM Punk on October 29th.
On the following episode of Dynamite, Punk came to the ring to lay a verbal beatdown on Kingston for his actions days earlier. The former WWE Superstar said that he wanted an apology from Kingston, but unsurprisingly, one was not forthcoming.
On the most recent episode of Rampage, Punk again called out Kingston saying he wanted his apology face to face. This brought out a fired up Kingston who went nose-to-nose with the former World Champion. Kingston called out Punk’s attitude, before Punk fired back calling Kingston a “bum.”
Kingston then issued the challenge for Full Gear, daring Punk to fight him. He said that he doesn’t care if he wins or loses, he just wants to beat up his rival. Closing by saying that he hoped that Punk would quit for another seven years.
These final comments tipped Punk over the edge who planted a headbutt on Kingston sparking a brawl between the two men. Referees, officials and trainers ran to the ring to break up the chaos with other members of the AEW roster even getting involved to separate the two men.
