AEW Name Addresses Possibility Of CM Punk Vs. Kenny Omega AEW

Despite the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the relationship between CM Punk and The Elite, a name within AEW believes that a match between Punk and Kenny Omega is inevitable.

Speaking on Torg & Elliot, AEW coach Mark Henry addressed the ‘dream’ match, with the World Strongest Man’s belief being that Punk and Omega will stand across an AEW ring from each other in the future despite whatever is happening behind-the-scenes right now.

Henry explained, while also pitching a fantasy scenario for the two to eventually meet:

“I want to see it too. It’s just a matter of time. You let things iron themselves out, and you see where things lead to.

“Could you imagine an AEW tournament for the World Title and on one side of the bracket, to go to the finals, you have Kenny Omega and CM Punk meet up against each other? It would be incredible.”

Henry then continued, discussing the value that both Punk and Omega have historically and going forward in AEW, even ranking both among the top 40 wrestlers of all-time in his book.

Henry continued:

“The top 100 wrestlers of all time, they’re halfway on it. CM Punk and Kenny Omega are in the top 40 of all time.

“People don’t realize, you go to the NFL, look up the top 100 football players, see who is in the top 40. It will blow your mind.

“Same thing with any other sport. I’d like to see the top 100 baseball players and see who is the top 40. It’s nothing to sneeze at.

“I believe in both of those guys being great competitors and I feel they have a lot left, multiple years. Kenny Omega just signed a new deal. He’s going to be around another four years.”

Despite Punk’s close friends FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) being set to face-off with The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) at AEW All In on August 27, Punk looks further away from facing off against any member of The Elite following his post-Collision comments addressed to Hangman Adam Page on August 12.
