CM Punk Shoots Down Speculation That He Is AEW's Hall Of Fame-Worthy Signing

The new signing will be revealed at Revolution

After spending much of the last 22 years in WWE, Paul Wight made his All Elite Wrestling debut on this week's edition of Dynamite. Wight discussed his upcoming role on AEW Dark: Elevation and then revealed a "hall of fame-worthy talent" would be debuting in AEW at Revolution. 

The wrestling world immediately speculated about who the mystery talent could be and the likes of Batista, Kurt Angle, Christian and Rob Van Dam were all mentioned in the conversation. The most prominent name, however, was CM Punk. 

Outside of a run-in at an MKE Wrestling show in April 2019 and his work on the Starz series Heels, The Straight Edge Superstar hasn't stepped inside the squared circle since Royal Rumble 2014, but he did recently admit that he is still open to an in-ring return. 

It doesn't look like that return will be happening on Sunday at Daily's Place, though, as Punk started out a Twitter Q&A with: "Let's try this again. Q&A time! Use hashtag #askpunk and no, it's not me."

The former WWE Champion would then say it's "100% not me" before adding that he thinks AEW "should focus on who they have."

With Punk seemingly out of the equation, the wrestling world will have to wait until Sunday to find out who the hall of fame-worthy signing is.
