Tony Khan Gives Update On CM Punk Return AEW

Tony Khan has commented on the potential return of CM Punk on the heels of the announcement that Bryan Danielson is cleared to return. 

During the Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor post-show media scrum, Tony Khan spoke about CM Punk’s expected return timeline, noting that while he wasn’t sure exactly what Punk said earlier in the day at his San Diego Comic Con panel appearance, he could say that he knows he is doing well.

Khan said:

“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.”

Regarding any specific date in mind for a return, say for the upcoming All Out in CM Punk’s hometown of Chicago, Khan remained appropriately non-committal, noting:

“I can’t rule it 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.”

ROH Death Before Dishonor hosted a variety of exciting match-ups including Claudio Castagnoli’s ROH World Championship title win and an exceptional two out of three falls match between FTR and the Briscoes.
