3 AEW Superstars Who Can Win CM Punk’s Real World Championship Following His Controversy With The Company

10 months ago By Sports Desk

We all know that CM Punk is no longer part of AEW. He was let go because of several accusations against him, and the last straw that led to his firing was a violent backstage fight with Jungle Boy.

This situation concerned AEW owner Tony Khan about everyone’s safety, so he had to make the tough choice to release CM Punk, who was one of the company’s biggest stars.

Although there were high hopes when CM Punk initially joined AEW, his time with the promotion lasted only two years.

Just one day before the All Out PPV event in Chicago, Tony Khan decided to part ways with CM Punk.

Fortunately for AEW, there wasn’t a specific match featuring Punk that had been advertised for the event. However, there were rumors of a surprise appearance. Unfortunately, that didn’t occur because he was let go the day before.

Now, the question is, what happened to the championship that CM Punk held at the time of his departure?

According to AEW, there is no plan to resurrect CM Punk’s Real World Championship, as it is considered a defunct championship.

But if AEW were to decide to revive it, here are three superstars who could contend for it:

3) Ricky Starks

CM Punk had a feud with Ricky Starks and even had one match where Ricky served as the guest referee. Punk ultimately won this match. They were scheduled for a strap match as the next step in their ongoing rivalry, but that opportunity went to Daniel Bryan after Punk’s departure. If a tournament were to happen, someone like Ricky Starks should certainly be given a chance, as he was already vying for the championship against Punk.

2) Samoa Joe

AEW’s major event, ALL In, showcased the rivalry between CM Punk and Samoa Joe and highlighted how much the championship meant to Joe. The match was for Punk’s Real World Championship, not Samoa Joe’s ROH World TV Championship. So, if a tournament were to take place, Joe should be the first in line, just like Starks.

1) Kenny Omega

What better way to bring relevance back to that championship than by having Kenny Omega compete for it? It would be an instant hit with fans because everyone knows the history between Kenny, CM Punk, and The Young Bucks. To make the championship meaningful to fans, Kenny would be the best choice for it, even more so than Ricky Starks and Samoa Joe.

So, these are the three superstars who could vie for the Real World Championship if it were to be reinstated. What are your thoughts on this? Please share your comments below.
