CM Punk made his return to wrestling last Friday (August 20), signing with AEW, seven years after he walked away from WWE.

But Punk isn't the only big name former WWE star wrestling fans are excited to see in AEW. Ever since his WWE contract reportedly expired in April, Daniel Bryan has been heavily rumoured to be making the leap.

And on Wednesday's (August 25) edition of Dynamite, Punk gave the biggest hint yet that Bryan was set to join him.

Speaking in the ring about his upcoming match with Darby Allin at All Out on September 5, Punk said he had to answer the question: "Can you still be the best in the world?"

The crowd then responded with will loud, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" chants, to which Punk replied: "That's somebody else's shtick and you might just need to be a little bit more patient, okay?"

Later on his Instagram Stories Punk teased Bryan's arrival even further by posting a zoomed in photo of the two of them shaking hands before a 2004 match in Ring Of Honor.

Bryan was last seen in WWE in March, when he lost a Universal title match to Roman Reigns where the stipulation was that if he lost he'd have to leave the brand.

Following his defeat to Reigns, Bryan was moved to the Alumni section of WWE's website. Since then neither Bryan or WWE has confirmed his future with the company.
