As previously stated, while CM Punk was not officially announced for a match or segment for this week’s AEW Collision in Hamilton, he was always scheduled to perform in some capacity.

In a tweet, AEW President Tony Khan announced that Punk will be doing commentary for the Men’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament quarterfinal match between ROH World Television Champion Samoa Joe and Roderick Strong. Punk defeated Satoshi Kojima in the quarterfinals of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door II on Sunday, and will face the winner of Joe vs. Strong in the semifinals of AEW Collision on July 8.

Punk also played another role during this week’s Collision tapings, which we won’t reveal here.
