CM Punk Wins AEW World Championship At All Out 2022
'Best In The World' makes it official again with victory over Jon Moxley.
CM Punk is a two-time AEW World Heavyweight Champion.
'The Voice Of The Voiceless' defeated Jon Moxley in a bloody main event of the All Out pay-per-view to reclaim what he'd only lost eleven days earlier and never been able to defend following a first win over former Champion Hangman Page.
Punk hit two Go To Sleeps on Moxley at the climax of a brutal 20 minute war. He joins the former Champion as the only person in the company to be the officially recognised Champion twice, and has reclaimed it one year on from his historic return match against Darby Allin at All Out 2021. Moxley had busted the challenger open early and zeroed in on the cut, but Punk survived every onslaught to nail his finisher twice in a conclusion well received by the partisan Chicago crowd.
His celebrations were cut short by the returning Maxwell Jacob Friedman, who gestured that he intended to take the title following his own victory as The Joker in the evening's opening Casino Ladder Match. A date wasn't confirmed for the two as the show went off the air but the upcoming Grand Slam event will be the heavily favoured destination.
