Punk and Harwood will meet in a singles match for the first time ever.

CM Punk is taking on one-half of FTR on tonight's episode of Dynamite

Tony Khan announced this afternoon that Punk vs. Dax Harwood will open Dynamite tonight. It will be the first time Punk has appeared in person on AEW television since he defeated MJF in a dog collar match at Revolution earlier this month.
