With CM Punk’s return to the squared circle imminent, Jeff Jarrett has pointed out why the former World Champion will be so keen to impress.

The reasons why CM Punk has been away from AEW since All Out 2022 have been well documented. Many thought that there was no way he could come back to the company, however the rumors started circulating when the new weekly programme Collision was announced that Punk would be a headliner for the new brand.

Also knowing about the pressures of being a star in the industry, Jeff Jarrett has now explained why we should get the best version of Punk when he returns to the ring.

In a discussion on his My World podcast, Double J explained why Punk will be so keen to put in a top performance.

Collision. Think about that. Think about five hours of primetime wrestling. It really is [crazy] to me. Punk stepping back into the game, and I don’t know Punk that well, I’ll say this. As a competitor and especially as somebody with his track record of success, love him or hate him, if you don’t think that guy’s gonna show up with the uber, ultimate game face on, and want to tear the house down in whatever shape, form, or fashion, folks, this is one of the reasons that not just myself, but my father absolutely loved the business.

Yes, it may be scripted, and it’s entertainment and everything that goes with this, but from a competitive nature, even the juices start flowing, and you have something to prove, not necessarily to the locker room, not saying that, not necessarily even to the fan base, but when you have something to prove in your gut to yourself, that you want to do good, that a guy that could probably sit back and rest on his laurels, I just don’t see that happening.

Continuing on, Jeff Jarrett explained how firsts in the wrestling business are hard to come by, making this even more important.

The spotlight is gonna be on Saturday night. With incredible anticipation, I cannot wait for Saturday night, for the red light to come on in the United Center and you hear the words, ‘Folks, welcome to the premiere of Collision.’ You don’t get an opportunity to do a first many times in this business, but we will this Saturday.
