AEW's CM Punk set for season two of Starz's 'Heels'

Punk plays Ricky Rabies in the pro wrestling drama.

CM Punk is returning to Starz's Heels for season two of the series.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that Punk will be part of the filming for season two of Heels. Punk appeared in two season one episodes as his character "Ricky Rabies."

"CM Punk will be part of the filming of the second season of the TV show 'Heels' on Starz," Meltzer wrote. "Filming is over the next several weeks. That may be why he wasn’t on either show [AEW Dynamite or Rampage] taped in San Antonio this week."

Heels, which stars Stephen Amell, premiered on Starz in August of last year. It was announced last November that the show had been renewed for a second season, with production set to begin in 2022.

The first season consisted of eight hour-long episodes.

Here's the description for Heels:

Two brothers and rivals -- one a villain, or 'heel,' in the ring; the other a hero, or 'face' -- war over their late father's wrestling promotion, vying for national attention in small-town Georgia.

Punk hasn't appeared in person on AEW television since Revolution. At the March 6 pay-per-view, Punk defeated MJF in a dog collar match.
