Can CM Punk Use 'Cult Of Personality' In AEW?

News on whether or not CM Punk can use the iconic Living Colour track should he arrive in AEW.

CM Punk should be free to use Living Colour's 'Cult of Personality' as his entrance theme in All Elite Wrestling.

This is according to PWInsider's Mike Johnson, who reports that even though WWE licensed the track for use as Punk's music during his final few years in the company, the promotion has no exclusivity on it. Thus, there are no legal barriers to Tony Khan's promotion paying to use it.

WWE licensed 'Cult of Personality' at Punk's request in 2011. He debuted it after returning to the company that July, following on from famously winning the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank 2011, and used it for the remainder of his run up until he was let go by the company in early 2014.


While AEW is yet to officially confirm anything, Punk is expected to arrive in the promotion imminently. Last week's Dynamite saw the company go all-in on teasing the former WWE Champion's debut for the upcoming 'First Dance' episode of Rampage in Chicago, IL (Punk's hometown) on 20 August.

Whether or not Punk will want to use 'Cult of Personality,' Killswitch Engage's 'This Fire Burns' (his first WWE theme), AFI's 'Miseria Cantare' (his classic ROH track), or something else entirely in AEW remains to be seen.
