On the recent AEW Saturday Collision episode, a surprising turn of events unfolded when CM Punk, masquerading as “The Golden Vampire,” ambushed Samoa Joe. What Joe anticipated to be a confrontation with an exuberantly costumed enhancement talent took an unexpected twist.
Rather than facing a colorful opponent, Samoa Joe found himself on the receiving end of an attack by none other than CM Punk. Wearing the guise of “The Golden Vampire,” Punk incapacitated Samoa Joe and subsequently agreed to Joe’s challenge for a one-on-one encounter at AEW All In in London.

Samoa Joe had previously extended a challenge to CM Punk, aiming to settle their long-standing rivalry in the heart of Wembley Stadium on August 27. Joe’s frustration stemmed from their prior match in the Owen Hart Foundation Memorial Cup Tournament, which concluded with a roll-up pin.
Initially silent in response to Joe’s callout, CM Punk’s lack of immediate reaction led to Samoa Joe asserting dominance. During the main event of the August 12 Collision episode, the Samoan Submission Machine choked out CM Punk as he strove to seize the AEW World Trios Championship from the House of Black.
With this new development, CM Punk has officially accepted the challenge, setting the stage for a clash at Wembley Stadium. The forthcoming encounter will mark the first instance of CM Punk defending a championship against Samoa Joe.
