MJF posted a photo of himself with the two Pro Wrestling Illustrated awards he won for his accomplishments in 2022.
MJF and CM Punk won "Best Feud of the Year." MJF also won the "Most Hated Wrestler of the Year" award. Some fans noticed that MJF had CM Punk's name blocked out on the "Best Feud of the Year" award. Obviously, that's MJF being a heel and it continues the idea that he hates Punk.
CM Punk saw the post and then commented, "Maybe find some tape for the ratings so nobody sees those either."
Punk has seemingly left the door open to returning to AEW and perhaps there's money to be made with a Punk-Elite feud. However, if that's not possible, then MJF vs. Punk could be very big for the company.
