CM Punk Names AEW & NJPW Stars He Wants To Face Following AEW World Title Win AEW

CM Punk has named several top stars he wants to face, following his AEW World Championship victory at Double or Nothing.

In the closing moments of the May 29 pay-per-view, Punk pinned Hangman Page after a GTS to become the fifth man to hold the AEW World Title.

In the post-show media scrum, Punk expressed interest in facing off against Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley. Punk also named some rising stars he wants to wrestle for the first time, noting:

“I am looking forward to stepping into the ring with AEW talent. I always think number one with the bullet is always going to be Bryan Danielson. I’ve never wrestled Jon Moxley, I’ve wrestled Dean Ambrose, so that’s an interesting match-up.

“Still guys on my list that I’ve never wrestled with, Jungle Boy, Ricky Starks. I could probably finish out my career wrestling FTR every day for the rest of my life and it can be different and fun every single time. Will Hobbs is another guy that I think has all the potential in the world.”

With AEW and NJPW stars set to meet during the June 26 Double or Nothing crossover event, Punk also revealed the NJPW stars he’s interested in working with, noting:

“Well, obviously, we got Forbidden Door coming up, so, you know, to me focusing on that, I think (Kazuchika) Okada, (Hiroshi) Tanahashi, (Will) Ospreay, guys like that I’m looking forward to stepping in the ring with.”

Punk has only suffered one defeat during his entire AEW run so far, against MJF in February.
