CM Punk vs. Hangman Page World title match set for AEW Double or Nothing

Punk will challenge for the AEW World Championship in Las Vegas on May 29.

CM Punk will challenge for the AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing on Sunday, May 29 in Las Vegas. 

Punk vs. AEW World Champion Hangman Page at Double or Nothing was announced during this week's Dynamite. 

After serving as guest commentator for a Dax Harwood vs. Cash Wheeler match, Punk took the microphone and addressed the audience. He said that he will not guarantee a win against Page, but that every match since he joined AEW has been warming up to this, and he promised to "fight until the wheels come off."

The Punk vs. Hangman match was teased in a brief face-to-face staredown between the two on last week's Dynamite episode.

Page has held the AEW World title since defeating Kenny Omega at Full Gear in November 2021.

The match at Double or Nothing will be Punk's first World title bout since a July 2013 WWE World Heavyweight title match against Alberto Del Rio at a house show in Atlanta, a match that Punk won by disqualification.
