Thoroughly enjoyed that MJF/Punk segment. Man, those two are stupid good on the mic.

This is where I think AEW excels with veteran talent. They don't overexpose them every week in the ring, they play to their strengths on the mic, and they let their star power do the talking.

CM Punk can still go, but they make all of his matches feel big - because they give him carte blanche on the mic. And he doesn't have to wrestle a ton to get over.

On a related note, I have a hunch we're going to see Johnny Gargano in AEW post-Dec. 10, and possibly on Dynamite on the 15th or New Year's Smash on Jan 1. He signed a one-week extension to finish out NXT for their PPV. AEW's roster is stacked, but you don't miss out on a talent like that. The only thing I can see delaying his AEW arrival is the arrival of his first kid due next year.

That one line from Punk was so great, just knowing how much the AEW crowd would eat it up.

And he’s right that Punk has been so overly positive and has been a boring face for most of his AEW run so far.

Yeah, I fully expect Gargano to be gone, he hasn't shown all that much interest in going to the main roster for WWE and has become a mainstay of NXT which is going against the direction that NXT is looking at.



Whether he goes to AEW or not is a question.



Too bad I like Johnny, though we know that Candice is the star of that family
