Saturday November 25th 2023 will be a date that wrestling fans across the world will never forget.

“This is huge for WWE,” Allison said.

“They are currently doing great business wise as it is, but CM Punk has shown time and time again that he’s very good for business. As soon as he left AEW a few months ago, their ratings on their weekly tv show Collision significantly dropped. CM Punk was also their top merch seller and no doubt he will be the same for WWE as well.”

“He literally debuted last night and today he was number three on Google Trends, which is absolutely huge.” The Wrestling Republic owner stated.

“It’s absolutely fascinating and he’s a controversial figure he absolutely is, but WWE are the kings of capitalising business wise on controversial figures so I have no doubt it’s definitely what is best for business for them.”
