CM Punk & AEW
As of this writing, Punk is not under contract with AEW. The former WWE star spoke with SI.com as part of the announcement where he noted that he’s looking forward to the appearance.
“A highlight is easily anytime anyone has a story,” said Punk. “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.”
Starrcast creator Conrad Thompson was also reached for a comment where he hyped it by stating that the convention will be able to provide a rare experience for fans.
“We wanted to bring something unique and that hasn’t been done before at Starrcast,” said Thompson. “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.”
