 CM Punk Vacates AEW World Championship, Interim Champion To Be Crowned

CM Punk announced live on AEW Rampage that he is to vacate the AEW World Championship due to injury.

Punk came to the ring with tears in his eyes and said that every bone in his body had told him to go home. He revealed that he needs to undergo surgery for an undisclosed injury. Punk said that he doesn’t want to hold up the company. Punk said he offered to drop the AEW Title but Tony Khan said he believes in him. Commentators claimed that Punk had vacated the championship but it was revealed he will NOT be relinquishing the title, but an interim champion will be crowned.

AEW announced that a battle royal will kick off next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, with the winner facing Jon Moxley in the main event of the show. The winner of the main event will go on to Forbidden Door to wrestle for the Interim AEW World Championship.

It was not announced who their opponent would be, but CM Punk was due to defend the title against Hiroshi Tanahashi.

At Sunday's Double or Nothing, CM Punk won the AEW World Championship for the first time after defeating Hangman Adam Page.
