Darby Allin Teases Match With CM Punk – Tony Khan kicked off the second hour of this week’s AEW Dynamite with a major live event announcement.
Khan announced that AEW Rampage: First Dance on August 20 will take place at the United Center in Chicago, IL.
AEW filed to trademark “The First Dance”, which is a play on The Last Dance documentary on Michael Jordan and the famous 1990’s Chicago Bulls. Punk also took to Instagram to post the song “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project, which was the entrance song for the 90’s Bulls, leading to speculation that “The First Dance” trademark is related to him.
Immediately after that announcement, fans in the building began chanting CM Punk’s name. Darby Allin cut a promo and said that he will be in Chicago and he’s been around a lot of men that have laid claim to be the greatest but there’s only one place to prove that “even if you think you’re the best in the world.”
Although his name was not mentioned, this is the first time that AEW has confirmed the CM Punk rumors. The promo from Allin suggests that fans may see Punk on August 20th. They would need something big to sell out the United Center for Rampage and Punk can certainly help sell tickets.
