The Bryan Danielson-led AEW Committee Behind the Firing of CM Punk: Report

The resurgent CM Punk returned to WWE after being terminated from AEW on the recommendation of Bryan Danielson. His surprise appearance at Survivor Series was met with thunderous reception from his hometown of Chicago, marking the end of an eight-year absence from the company. Despite rumors of a potential return to WWE, Punk had initially suggested he wasn’t planning to sign with his former company. However, his return confirmed all the rumors, and he made a controversial appearance on WWE Raw, stating that he was there to make money, not friends. It remains to be seen how this move will impact WWE in the long run.
