CM Punk’s beginnings were magical

Let’s be frank here, AEW Rampage: The First Dance was all about the second coming of CM PUNK.

Punk seemed full of emotion, returning to an arena in his hometown, chock full of fans shouting his name. Who wouldn’t be emotional, even if it’s part of the drama made for television?

Punk delivers a passionate promo, discussing his absence, even going so far as to apologize and explain his actions. Its return and openness has sparked major reactions everywhere, from a crying fan featured on TV to breakouts all over social media.

Side note – The crying fan has made headlines on social media. I can’t say I’m surprised. The fan embodies what each, unique, individual, and each, unique, wrestling fan, waited. Can’t remember the last time the hype for a comeback was this great. We knew, say 90% with certainty, that CM Punk was coming back to wrestling. We knew from the leaks and sorting that it would be at AEW. But knowing all the information, still seeing it happening, goose bumps. Chills. Tingling. Tears.

For the crying fan, you embodied the emotion of true wrestling fans. I offer my praise.

Some interesting words for sure from CM Punk. Many have heard the “shots” based on comments about the need to run away through “the other business” and being exhausted. Yes, it’s obvious he was targeting WWE. He spoke at length about the disease of struggle, exhaustion, giving everything and getting nothing back. He also specifically stated that he “returns to catch”After a stay in the sport-spectacle.

For what it’s worth, I really hope Punk is in a better place mentally, physically, spiritually, and in all areas of his life. I really do. Having been exhausted in my past, I can only imagine what it must have been for punk to hurt both physically and emotionally.

I’m glad AEW is the place to be for CM Punk. AEW has proven to be a professional wrestling paradise, and if there was any doubt before, CM Punk has joined the ranks, putting Dr Britt Baker in his opening remarks, as well as his acceptance of the challenge of Darby Allin as well as an open invitation to the young wrestlers he wishes to work with, there should be no further doubt. AEW is professional wrestling.

Let’s not forget the rest of the show … Which was just as sturdy and not a throwaway as you might expect. I won’t do the traditional recap in order, but I will go over the highlights from the rest of the show.

Lots of hype now for ALL OUT on September 5e.

Jade Cargill defeats Keira Hogan in a few minutes. This is my only permanent complaint. There’s no question Cargill has the look and can wrestle, but the promos don’t seem to be getting any better, the insertion of the word ‘bitch’ is more forced than ever, and squash matches don’t feel like to be a true dominant in the ring. They excited other wrestlers to be crushed. It does nothing for Cargill and only devalues ​​any hype for future challengers.

Jurassic Express defeats Private Party in a fantastic match. Poor Marq Quen, who almost committed suicide with a shooting star almost missed from the ropes on the ground. Ouchies. A very fast fight with the two teams being able to gain highlights. At ringside were The Varsity Blondes and the Lucha brothers as they will compete against each other to then challenge Jurassic Express for the No. 1 candidate spot at the AEW Team Championships.

AEW Rampage: The Last Dance Main Event: Jon Moxley defeated Daniel Garcia by submission

For anyone who hasn’t taken Garcia seriously, be sure to watch this game. The guy has a well established career before AEW. Even though it wasn’t a long game, Garcia had a lot of offense and organized his own pretty impressive submission clinic. His sniper at the end appeared to be sloppy, but that was clearly intentional as the positioning allowed Moxley to grab Garcia by the neck to apply the Bulldog Sleeper / Choke submission.

After the game ends, 2.0 jumped in to get revenge on Mox and Eddie kingston, but were thwarted by Darby Allin and Sting.

A solid way to end The First Dance. Throughout the show, the hype for All out through promotions and announcements, the upcoming pay-per-view has given a feel of a big fight.

I have said this several times over the past two years, and I will continue to say it. AEW brought back my love of pro wrestling. Times like CM Punk, wrestlers like Adam Page “The Executioner” and others from various promotions, and work with other promotions is a big deal and a big game changer in professional wrestling.

Whether you agree with me or not, and whether you’re a fan of WWE, AEW, or any promotion, now is the best time to be a fan since the mid-2000s. In my opinion .

Let’s be blunt here, AEW Rampage: The First Dance was all about the Second Coming of CM PUNK.
