AEW has a lot of things going on as they make their way to Full Gear. There is a Devil going around, and the company has not revealed who is under that mask just yet. That being said, it appears that those plans are in place.
CM Punk recently had some fun on Instagram, as he posted an old promo where he was a literal devil. That being said, CM Punk is not the man under that devil mask on AEW television.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that AEW’s big payoff for The Devil storyline does not involve CM Punk. It was noted that AEW has a plan for who is under the Devil mask. Some people know about those plans, but it is being kept very close to the vest.
On a recent Fightful show, the panel were speculating whether or not the people that have been under the mask in the segments are actually who is planned for the eventual reveal. Multiple sources reached out to confirm that is the case, and that several people within the company know the identities, but have done well at keeping it quiet. You may remember in the case of Retribution, not only were the eventual reveals not the people under the masks originally, but the talent themselves had no idea for a while they were planned for it.
Those that we’ve spoken to are of the belief it isn’t CM Punk, and saying that it would be a huge work on those in the know if so. It goes without saying, but he hasn’t been portraying the person under the mask.
It was also reported that, “Dr. Britt Baker DMD hasn’t been under the mask, either, so her comments within interviews this past week were not a swerve, if people in the company are to be believed.“
We will have to see who reveals themselves as The Devil. Since CM Punk and Britt Baker don’t seem to be options anymore, that eliminated two popular fan theories. If anything, it could results in a moment that everyone is talking about the next day.
