SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...

This Friday on AEW Rampage, C.M. Punk will be in action against Daniel Garcia.

On this week’s AEW’s anniversary episode of Dynamite, Punk addressed the audience in the ring with a promo. Punk talked about his history in Philadelphia and how important the city was to his journey through the wrestling business. Punk wrapped things up by telling the audience that he would wrestle or buy them all cheese steaks. The crowd had a mixed reaction, but Punk said he wanted to wrestle. From there, he challenged Garcia to a match on Rampage and Tony Khan made it official.

Punk and Garcia have a recent history together. Prior to Punk’s debut at All Out, Garcia attacked Punk with 2point0. Punk mentioned that he and Garcia had unfinished business together because of that attack.

In addition to this match, The Lucha Brothers will square off against The Acclaimed for the AEW World Tag Team Championships Friday on Rampage.


CATCH-UP: AEW Rampage last Friday draws lowest viewership yet for episode featuring Danielson vs. Nick Jackson, Evans vs. Cassidy in hair match, but key demo ranks high
