As previously noted, there is hope that top AEW stars such as Kenny Omega and CM Punk will return from injuries in time for the 2022 All Out PPV.
Author Mike Roe was in attendance for San Diego Comic Con when CM Punk spoke at a panel. According to Roe, CM Punk said he has no timeline for when he’ll be back as his foot was “shattered.” CM Punk noted that his foot is still healing and he has been “re-learning to walk.”
While speaking to media after the ROH Death Before Dishonor PPV, AEW President Tony Khan commented on CM Punk…
“He’s doing well in his recovery. He was at [San Diego Comic-Con] today. I didn’t see his panel, we obviously saw that Bryan Danielson announced his return there. I don’t know exactly what [Punk said at the panel] but I know he’s doing well in his recovery. I don’t want to scoop anything he might have said at the Comic-Con panel, but he’s doing well. He’s not behind in his recovery. I wouldn’t want to step on anything [he’s doing] but I haven’t spoken to him since he did the panel. But going into the panel, he’s on track and we look forward to a great unification match when he’s back, whoever the Interim Champion is.”
“I can’t rule it out [All Out] but I also can’t promise. I don’t want to say anything when it comes to somebody’s recovery from a real serious injury. He’s really battling hard to get back as soon as he possibly can.” (quotes courtesy of WrestleZone.com)
