Judging by the times we are in today, the fans are divided on their wrestling and entertainment opinions, with WWE's current state being a regular debate on social media.

While the main roster has constantly presented stale finishes, NXT has been a platform where the performers and the product really gets the respect it deserves.

Since WWE has always ruled the territory of professional wrestling, the inception of All Elite Wrestling could coerce them to have a good introspection at the way they are dealing with sports entertainment.

With fans monitoring Kenny Omega's situation, there's a genuine possibility that marquee signings like the Cleaner could make things more troublesome for WWE.

Despite the fact that Vince McMahon is the man who rules the business, his ideas have really not connected with the audience, and WWE could be in for a crisis situation.

Many talents on the main roster do feel dejected about the situation, and might make a sensational transition to Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks' AEW, which is all about changing the wrestling world.

Considering Chris Jericho shocked the world and signed a contract with AEW, who could be next in line to make such a sensational move? Lets find out.

Here are the 5 biggest marquee signings WWE would hope AEW doesn't make.

#1 CM Punk

He is the biggest draw

If you look at a superstar who has had his share of problems with WWE in the past and still continues to stay away from the business, you remember CM Punk.

The Cult of Personality is widely respected as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of this generation, if not the greatest, who not only played a pivotal role in changing the complexion of the business, but also became the catalyst of that change.

Punk made a solid transition when he announced that he would join UFC after he left WWE on very unfortunate terms. However, the former WWE Champion didn't really make the most of his opportunities, and holds a 2-0 loss record in UFC.

While many fans have openly stated their disbelief in Punk coming back to wrestle for AEW, the Best in the World has never denied the fact that he won't be interested in coming back.

In a popular interview with Ariel Helwani, Punk humbly replied that he never received any professional offer to compete at All In from Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks.

Considering that the Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes have been very familiar with Punk, this could be an ultimate opportunity for the Second City Saint to return and change the game.

Since Punk always held the belief of changing things for the better, professional wrestling could really propel to unimaginable heights if he signs for AEW.
