How long CM Punk is expected to be recovering from injury suffered at AEW All Out 2022

As previously noted, CM Punk reportedly suffered a “serious” injury during his AEW All Out 2022 match against Jon Moxley.

The AEW world title was declared vacant during the September 7th 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite. The belief is that CM Punk would have been stripped of the AEW world title even if his altercation with The Young Bucks didn’t happen due to the injury. Dave Meltzer of noted the following about Punk’s injury…

“He may have already undergone surgery, but either way he’s undergoing surgery, and it was not confirmed to me it was a torn tricep, but it was confirmed to me that it’s surgery for a torn muscle in the arm, so it’s triceps/biceps, maybe pec, but probably triceps. And that’s usually about an eight-month recovery period. So he was gonna be stripped of the title either way, so that move was pretty easy to do.”

“Punk’s out for eight months, or whatever it’s going to be, six months/eight months, whatever. If he’s not let go, and a lot of people don’t want him back.” (quotes courtesy of
