CM Punk is making a return to pro wrestling, but fans will be able to watch him in two different incarnations very soon. The rumors are strong and reports have been stated that Punk signed with AEW. He also has a guest starring role in the next season of Heels.

Punk will play a character named “Ricky Rabies.” It is unknown how much he will be featured, but Rabies will be around for at least one episode. He is seen smiling away with Stephen Amell, who is sporting a bloody face.

Yes, the blood on Amell’s face is fake. His smile probably wouldn’t be so big if he was really busted open. Still, it gives us a look at CM Punk in his upcoming role, one that could have helped stir the urge to make a pro wrestling return.

Heels follows the Duffy Wrestling League, operated by to brothers. The pro wrestling world can be a complicated and cutthroat place to operate, and CM Punk knows all about that. Odds are he fit right in. The first season of Heels debuts on August 15th.

Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
