CM Punk is reportedly set to stay on the AEW: Fight Forever game roster.
Although some fans have speculated that CM Punk could be removed from AEW: Fight Forever video game following the events of the backstage brawl at All Out between himself and The Elite, a new report from SportsKeeda is suggesting that is not true.
According to the report, SportsKeeda reached out to AEW to get some clarification on Punk's status for the game. In response, AEW told the outlet that if anybody that has already been marketed for the game had to be removed, they would make a formal announcement about it. Punk was originally on the cover of the upcoming console game alongside other stars like Jade Cargill, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega, and more. Punk was also heavily featured in the first trailers for the game.
A new trailer and cover for the game was released back in November.
In other Fight Forever news, an image of a marketing sleeve for the Nintendo Switch version of the game has circulated on social media in recent weeks. Most notably, the sleeve features a M for Mature rating, which is different then the T for Teen rating that the game has advertised in past trailers. Fightful's Will Washington cleared up the issue in a recent post on Twitter, noting that the game is still set to be rated T for Teen.
