Moxley landed on Punk and Punk lifted him again for what was the third GTS before covering for the win.
Chicago loves CM Punk.

This is Punk’s second run with the championship. He defeated Adam Page at Double or Nothing to win the belt the first time, but was forced to take time away right after due to the foot injury. Moxley became the Interim AEW World Champion at Forbidden Door and then unified the the titles last week on AEW Dynamite by beating Punk in less than five minutes.
