Major Update on CM Punk Injury Recovery

CM Punk has been spotted back at the gym, fueling speculation about his potential return to AEW.

Punk has been absent from the company’s programming since September 2022, after he suffered an injury during his AEW World Championship win over Jon Moxley, before participating in the now infamous media scrum, and susequent backstage brawl with The Elite.

Although Punk has reportedly expressed a willingness to return to AEW and “do business,” the status of his return remains uncertain. The recent sighting of Punk at the gym, however, suggests that he is making progress in his recovery from his tricep injury.

Punk would take to his Instagram story to post a shot of himself back in the qym, with the song “Watch Me Rise” by Punk band Have Heart, which in itself could be a hint towards a return to the ring.

In this world, they choose to see me, they choose to see me like a setting sun. So it’s up to me, I have to see me like a rising one.
