Update On KENTA vs. CM Punk Match: KENTA Still Wants The Bag

KENTA wants CM Punk, and he wants the bag.

On June 8, Fightful Select reported that CM Punk had been discussed as a potential opponent for KENTA at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. KENTA has since consistently asked for the right amount of money in order to make the match happen.

Now, he's continuing to demand the bag:

For years, KENTA has requested a match with CM Punk, taking umbrage with Punk for, among other things, his use of the Go To Sleep finishing move. Last year, Punk was scheduled to face Hiroshi Tanahashi for the AEW World Title before he suffered an ankle injury that put him out of action for several weeks.

CM Punk is set to return to AEW for the first time since AEW All Out 2022. As part of the debut episode of AEW Collision, Punk will team with FTR against Samoa Joe, Jay White, and Juice Robinson. Click here to learn more.

Time will tell if KENTA will actually secure the bag.

Two major matches have been signed for AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2023. Check out the full card here.
