CM Punk To Appear At Starrcast III, Punk On What He Gets Out Of Meeting Wrestling Fans

CM Punk To Appear At Starrcast III, Punk On What He Gets Out Of Meeting Wrestling Fans
CM Punk will be appearing at the big Starrcast III convention in Chicago during Labor Day weekend.


Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated noted on Twitter today that Punk will be the new headliner for the convention. Punk will reportedly participate in a one-on-one interview.

Punk has stayed away from wrestling fan conventions, for the most part, since leaving WWE in 2014.

The appearance at Starrcast will lead to more speculation on Punk debuting for AEW at their All Out pay-per-view, which takes place near Chicago during Starrcast III weekend.

Punk also spoke with SI's Justin Barrasso and said genuine interactions with pro wrestling fans still mean a great deal to him.

"A highlight is easily anytime anyone has a story," Punk said. "I do about one signing a year and the best part is always finding out how you've touched people's lives in a meaningful way. A lot of it can be heavy; helped someone get clean, helped somehow with the loss of a loved one. I am always touched to know the private intimate stories people have."

Punk continued, "Knowing the weekend will be attracting fans from all over the world for AEW, and since I normally only do one signing a year, it's a great way to maybe meet people that normally I wouldn't get the chance to otherwise. Looking forward to meeting everyone there."

Starrcast creator Conrad Thompson said wrestling fans will finally get what they've wanted for a long time - Punk with a live mic. There's no word yet on who will be interviewing Punk.

"We wanted to bring something unique and that hasn't been done before at Starrcast," Conrad said. "I've always wanted to have Punk at Starrcast but the timing was never right, and I'm really excited that the stars have aligned for this August. Fans are going to get what they've wanted for a long time, and that is CM Punk with a live mic. It's going to happen at Starrcast."
