Well, as previously reported, former WWE Superstar and now AEW Superstar CM Punk made his debut this past Friday, August 20 on AEW Rampage to a sold out crowd and I have to say that was the loudest I have ever heard a crowd pop in years! He came out and gave a promo wearing his brand new t-shirt that has been reportedly sold out immediately after his debut. Pro Wrestling Tees, a wrestling-based t-shirt company reported that their website crashed due to the overwhelming amount of traffic of people wanting to buy the new CM Punk t-shirt. It was truly an awesome sight seeing CM Punk back and I can't wait to see what happens next.
In other news, WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar made his return at last week's Pay Per View Summerslam since Wrestlemania 36. This has squashed all the rumors and reports that he was possibly going to All Elite Wrestling (AEW). Brock Lesnar appeared after the Main Event between Roman Reigns and John Cena, sporting a new look with a ponytail and beard. This is setting up for a future match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.
Summerslam also saw another return in the form of Becky Lynch who faced off against WWE Smackdown Women's Champion Bianca Belair in a match that left WWE fans in total shock and disgust, as Becky Lynch beat Bianca Belair in 20 seconds. Absolutely no one expected this to happen, and fans quickly took to social media to voice their disappointment with the ending of the match. If you ask me, this is typical WWE dropping the ball with a potential rising star in the company in regard to Blanca Belair. But as always, time will tell and we shall see what happens.
The question of the week comes from Joan L in Far Rockaway, and she asked, "Where has Nikki Bella been?" To be honest, I have not been keeping up with her as much lately nor have I seen her on TV unless I missed it. I do know that for some apparent reason, Nikki Bella was not allowed to attend last week's Summerslam PPV which I find very weird, but then again nothing the WWE does anymore shocks me. Hopefully, we will see Nikki involved in a good storyline soon. Thanks for the question Joan.
