AEW News: CM Punk Responds To Criticism Of His ‘Random Opponent’, Pre-Sale Codes For Upcoming Dynamite Tapings, Varisty Blondes Promo From AEW Dark

AEW Dynamite CM Punk vs. Lee Moriarty

– As previously reported, CM Punk will face Lee Moriarty on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. A fan criticized the move and AEW’s booking on Twitter, questioning Punk facing a ‘random opponent’ after the promo battle with MJF the week prior. The fan noted that AEW matches don’t have “story or rivalry buildups” and the company “pulls names from hats” for people to wrestle.

Punk replied: “Oh maybe we should tag to see if we can coexist.

Punk was likely referring to a booking trope used by WWE in which rivals are forced to team even if they’re currently feuding. Of course, AEW also recently used this trope, as the commentary team questioned if Cody Rhodes and PAC could co-exist during their match at Full Gear.

– AEW has announced the pre-sale codes for upcoming Dynamite and Rampage tapings in Washington, DC. The January 19 episode of Dynamite will air on TBS while the January 21 episode of Rampage will air on TNT. Both will take place at the Entertainment & Sports Arena. The pre-sale code is AEW202. You can either buy tickets for each individual event or a combination ticket for both.

– A promo for the Varsity Blonds aired during last night’s AEW Dark.
