Amid Rampant Rumors, CM Punk Reflects on ‘Best Year of [His] Career’

Just when we thought we had the answers, CM Punk changed the questions when he debuted in AEW on August 20, 2021; returning to the world of professional wrestling after 7 long years.

In that year, Punk has had highs and lows, victories and defeats, titles and tribulations.

Even now, Punk is in the midst of what some industry reporters are calling a ‘dramatic situation,’ involving Adam Page, Jon Moxley, and the AEW World Championship.

While both Fightful and the Wrestling Observer are reporting that Punk ‘went into business for himself‘ on the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite by calling out Adam Page, without Page knowing, and even with rumors that Punk might quit the company, on social media Punk has been extremely grateful while reflecting on his last year in the company.

“One year ago today began the best year of my professional career,” Punk wrote on his Instagram page. “Too many great moments, not enough space to post all the great pics. Rekindled passion, made new friends, reunited with old ones. Can’t stop smiling, won’t stop until the wheels fall off. “

Punk, despite rumors that he is currently ‘disgruntled’ with the company he currently works for, seems to be all smiles in the pictures he attached to the Instagram post. The pictures feature him alongside FTR, Britt Baker, Eddie Kingston, Sting and Darby Allen, and even the man with whom he is currently feuding – Jon Moxley.’

Nobody quite knows exactly what’s going on with Punk/Moxley/Page at the moment, there’s much hearsay, rumor, and innuendo currently going on, but the Second City Saint wanted one message to be strikingly clear.

“Thank you most of all to all the fans who made it possible,” he wrote.

Then, he mentioned something about sports that seemed to be a bit ‘inside baseball,’ literally, but we don’t really know what it means.

“I’m having the time of my life, as there’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that’ll be a home run. And so that’ll make it a 4-0 ballgame,” he concluded.

As we head towards a collision course between CM Punk and Jon Moxley on Wednesday’s Dynamite, whatever the result, it’s nice to know that Punk has enjoyed his time with AEW.

Or has he?

We’ll find out for sure in the coming weeks.

Punk will battle Jon Moxley in a battle to unify the AEW Championship title on August 24 in Cleveland, Ohio.

As always, will have full results.
