AEW star CM Punk (that feels good to write) has revealed how he’s preparing for his in-ring return against Darby Allin at All Out.
CM Punk hasn’t officially wrestled a match since the 2014 Royal Rumble, but he’s confident that fans won’t be disappointed with his outing.
Speaking on ESPN Chicago, Punk said:
“I think it’s a lot of, ‘Can Punk still go? Can Punk still wrestle in the ring? Can he be entertaining?’. Fortunately for me, I was never a guy that did a whole bunch of crazy flips and stuff like that. So I don’t have to go back and try to do these amazing athletic feats. My goal is to tell a story. And the way I get ready for this is to watch a lot of Darby Allin matches. It’s no different than a sports team watching tape on the team that they’re playing.
“I watch him, I see what he can do, and then I get to get creative about it. And that’s how I get ready. Obviously, I’m in a television show that’s called Heels that’s on the Starz network too. I’ve been in the ring. We’re filming wrestling. I have gotten in the ring and I have been training but not super extensively because it beats your body up, so I’m trying to be smart about it. But mostly just watching tape on him and I’m impressed by what I see.”
Recent reports indicated that Punk was looking good in training, even to the point it wasn’t noticeable that he’d been out of action for so long.
The match against Allin takes place at All Out on September 5, which is also in Chicago.
