CM Punk’s First Match Since WWE Return Confirmed


CM Punk will be part of his first WWE match in almost a decade in the company’s spiritual home of Madison Square Garden.

CM Punk shocked the world when he returned to WWE at Survivor Series for the first time since he walked out of the company in January 2014. The move also came less than three months after CM Punk was very publicly fired by AEW for his part in a backstage altercation with Jack Perry at All In.

CM Punk announced that he was signing with Raw and looks to be set on a collision course with World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins who is less than thrilled that Punk has returned.

However, before that happens CM Punk is set to compete in a WWE ring for the first time since the 2014 Royal Rumble on one of the biggest nights of the year for the company.

CM Punk To Wrestle For WWE At MSG

Every holiday season, WWE returns to its spiritual home of Madison Square Garden in New York City for a huge live show. Now the MSG social media account has announced that CM Punk’s first match back in WWE will take place in the arena as he faces ‘Dirty’ Dominik Mysterio.

CM Punk has also been confirmed for a live event in The Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California on the 30th of December where he will also take on Mysterio. The last time Punk competed in that venue was in June 2022 when he teamed with FTR to defeat Max Caster and The Gunn Club in AEW.
