CM Punk at Starrcast III

Chicago’s very own CM Punk will headline Starrcast III. First announced by Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso, Punk will do a one-on-one interview at Starrcast. He will also be participating in an autograph session. Punk will be the headliner on Saturday, August 31st – the same day as AEW’s All Out.

In the interview with Barrasso, Punk mentions Starrcast being a great venue for meeting fans: “Knowing the weekend will be attracting fans from all over the world for AEW, and since I normally only do one signing a year, it’s a great way to maybe meet people that normally I wouldn’t get the chance to otherwise.” Punk has been retired since 2014, but supposedly made an independent appearance earlier this year under a mask.
