AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker made an impressive mark on AEW’s new show Rampage last week. It was in her hometown where Rampage debuted in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the crowd was electric as the champ defended her title in the main event against Red Velvet. This week, Rampage was in Chicago, and there is one name synonymous with the windy city and that is CM Punk.
Punk made his return to wrestling for the first time in seven years and the crowd erupted. Once he made his way to the ring after soaking in the applause and cheers, the first line he delivered was giving a nod to the AEW Women’s World Champion – Dr. Britt Baker.
He referenced Baker from the week before stating, “you guys really know how to make a kid feel like Britt Baker in Pittsburgh.”
During the post-show media scrum, Punk spoke on why the first words gave reflection to the AEW Women’s Champion. He wanted to put her over and knew that his first promo in seven years was going to be important so he wanted to include her with that.
With CM Punk returning to wrestling, the next logical question is will we see former three-time WWE Divas Champion Aj Mendez (Lee) return as well? Mendez retired from the ring in 2015 and she took to her social media today to celebrate her husband’s return by telling him to “go on, break the internet, boo.”
