Khan did not reveal whether or not Punk would wrestle on the show or appear in another fashion. Punk has been away from AEW since All Out last year. At that event, Punk won the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley and tore his tricep in the process.
Punk famously went on a post PPV media scrum tirade against The Elite, which led to a backstage brawl between himself, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks.
CM Punk is a two-time AEW World Champion and a former WWE Champion.
