CM Punk was made to step down in his role as AEW world champion only days after he had won the title.
An emotional and red-eyed Punk made an announcement during
the All Elite Wrestling show “Rampage” last night he’s injured
and must quit the title he took at the Sunday’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view.
A temporary champion will be announced during the Forbidden Door pay-per-view ,
which will air on June 26. A Battle royal is scheduled to begin the following weekend’s
“AEW Dynamite” and the winner will be matched against Jon Moxley
in the main event in order to secure a place in the final match at Forbidden Door,
where they will face another competitor to be decided.
“The negative is that I’m injured and need surgical intervention,” Punk said.
“A number of things are broken, but the largest one being my heart
as I am a lover of performing in front of everyone of you. And I wanted to take for a run.”
