Former WWE star Daniel Bryan became the latest star to make a dramatic debut on AEW, using his real name Bryan Danielson at the end of All Out.
Just two weeks ago, CM Punk returned to wrestling after seven years out of the sport to join AEW, to a rapturous ovation in his hometown of Chicago.
On Sunday, Punk made his in ring debut against Darby Allin at the company's latest pay-per-view show and he was joined on the show by a man he knows all too well.
With the event coming to a close, after Kenny Omega's victory over Christian Cage for the AEW World Championship, former NXT champion Adam Cole came out and re-joined the Elite stable.
However there was one more surprise to come as Danielson's music hit and he came out to another huge reaction from the crowd, only he certainly isn't joining Omega, Cole and the Young Bucks.

Danielson and Punk both wrestled each other on the independent scene before each signed for WWE, where they met again a few years later.
It's been a hell of a journey for the 40-year-old over the past few years. Ahead of WrestleMania 30, in 2014, his popularity forced WWE to change their minds on him as a top performer and he won the Heavyweight World Championship on the shows main event.
Sadly injuries forced him to vacate the title and he eventually had to retire, due to severe concussions. Amazingly he made a return three years later and was able to have another run in the company, where he once again became the champion.
In May this year his contract with Vince McMahon's company came to an end and there have been rumours ever since that he would join All Elite Wrestling.
It wasn't just Cole and Danielson who were announced as joining the promotion though, with Ruby Soho, formerly Ruby Riot in WWE, also being added to the roster.
It's a really exciting fans for wrestling fans, especially AEW fans, and it'll be intriguing to see what happens with their new signings.
