Top Star Says CM Punk Would Be Welcomed Into IMPACT Wrestling

Josh Alexander on CM Punk potentially joining IMPACT Wrestling

IMPACT Wrestling is an option for CM Punk, should the multi-time world champion decide he wants to continue his pro wrestling career following his firing with cause by AEW.

One of IMPACT's top stars in Josh Alexander was asked by WhatCulture if Punk would be welcomed into the promotion. 

Alexander said: "CM Punk? Yeah, absolutely. I don't think you can question the guy's star power, his ability to get eyes on a product or a company. I saw Bully Ray recently say the exact same thing. You can say whatever you want [about him], but I wasn't in those locker rooms seeing what had happened or transpired or the drama of everything that unfortunately occurred since his return, but I know who I am as a professional and an individual in this company and I think I would work synergistically with a guy like CM Punk. Of course, we're both Bret Hart fans, so that might help. But I would love the opportunity to get in the ring with him, have a program with him in IMPACT Wrestling or anywhere else."

Punk was fired by All Elite Wrestling in early September 2023 following a backstage altercation with Jack Perry and multiple incidents with Tony Khan at All In. There has yet to be a deal agreed between Punk and WWE. IMPACT Wrestling are believed to be interested in signing the former ROH World Champion.

Josh Alexander will headline IMPACT Wrestling's Bound For Glory pay-per-view on October 21. He will challenge Alex Shelley for the IMPACT World Championship at the event.
