CM Punk Set to Defend “Real” AEW World Championship on August 5th

Mark your calendars for an epic showdown on August 5th, as CM Punk is slated to put the AEW World Championship belt he never lost on the line! Since his triumphant return to AEW in June, Punk has been carrying a red bag that has sparked intense fan speculation. During the latest episode of Collision, the contents of the bag were finally revealed: the World Championship belt he earned by defeating Jon Moxley at All Out in September of the previous year.

In a passionate moment, Punk stood in the ring with the prestigious belt and boldly proclaimed himself as the company’s “real World Champion.” He emphasized that the title he holds still bears his name and essence, and most importantly, he was never defeated for it. To make his mark, he spray-painted his trademark ‘X’ symbol on the belt, signifying his straight-edge lifestyle and asserting that he is “better than you.”

The tension escalated when Ricky Starks confronted Punk in the ring. Starks asserted that he had already secured two victories over the Second City Saint and, as a result, believed the championship rightfully belonged to him. Punk, willing to take on the challenge, agreed to the bout. However, considering the questionable nature of Starks’ wins, he demanded a special guest referee for the match—none other than the legendary Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat.

The highly anticipated championship match was officially confirmed by Tony Khan himself, taking to social media to announce the thrilling collision between CM Punk and Ricky Starks for the “real” AEW World Championship on the August 5th edition of Collision.

Prepare for a night of electrifying action and fierce competition as Punk puts his rightful claim on the line, and Starks aims to prove his worth in the pursuit of championship glory. The stage is set, and the stakes have never been higher in AEW
