CM Punk returns on AEW Dynamite, confronts Jon Moxley



CM Punk is back from injury.

The end of Wednesday's Dynamite saw Jon Moxley retain the interim AEW World Championship against Chris Jericho. After the match, the rest of the Jericho Appreciation Society came in and attacked Moxley. This brought out the Blackpool Combat Club. Jericho was about to strike Moxley with the AEW World Championship when Punk’s music hit. He came to the ring and cleared out the rest of the members of the Jericho Appreciation Society.

After Punk cleared the ring, Moxley and Punk came face-to-face. Moxley eventually flipped off Punk and made his exit as he joined the rest of the Blackpool Combat Club. The show closed with Punk celebrating in the ring.

Punk had been out of action since June with a leg injury, last wrestling on the June 1 edition of Dynamite where he and FTR defeated Max Caster and The Gunn Club. Despite suffering a leg injury, he remained AEW World Champion. At Forbidden Door later in the month, Moxley defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi to become interim AEW World Champion.
