AEW star CM Punk celebrated his latest victory with a gesture of support for the transgender community.
Punk defeated Samoa Joe at Wembley Stadium for the Real World Championship on Sunday.
And after the fight was over, the 44-year-old wrestling veteran posed with a fan holding a sign that read ‘Trans rights are human rights’.
The sign also read “Oi Rishi! in an apparent reference to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who was accused of mocking trans women in June.
Punk patted the fan on the head and put his arm around them before winking at the camera.
The sign, which read “Oi Rishi!” was apparently addressed to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

The wrestler previously voiced his support for Roe v. Wade, who made abortion a constitutional right in the United States before being struck down by the Supreme Court in 2022.
At the time, he expressed his anger over the decision, blaming “elite, wealthy, white terrorist religious fascists” on Instagram.
His move on Sunday comes after Jack Perry allegedly physically confronted him ahead of his clash against Samoa Joe.
The tension appears to be related to a comment Perry made during AEW’s All-In buy-in show.
After a segment involving a car windshield, Perry said “It’s real glass, cry me like a river” – a direct reference to the argument he had with Punk a few weeks ago about of the use of glass.

Fightful previously reported that Punk objected to Perry wanting to use real glass, considering it dangerous, while also assuming that Perry was doing it so he wouldn’t have to come to work the following week.
And on Sunday, the publication reported that Perry approached Punk backstage and “stamped him in the face” and “punched him”.
Perry was reportedly “choked up” by Punk before being told to leave Wembley Stadium.
However, fellow AEW star Miro wrote on X that the report was “false and untrue”.
