CM Punk went nuclear on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks during the post-AEW All Out media scrum. It was reported that Omega and the Bucks threatened to leave AEW over Punk as well, because a backstage brawled ensued. Even Booker T commented on the situation recently.
Ringside News exclusively reported that the AEW locker room is divided now. Ace Steel also went ballistic during the brawl, and many people were involved when all was said and done.
Quite a few people have already been suspended as well. While speaking to The Hall of Fame with Booker T & Brad Gilmore, Booker T stated that he believes AEW needs an intervention after their backstage fiasco.
I would have an intervention. Everybody would have to come to the table, and the one thing that everybody got to know is that, damn it, I’m in charge. If somebody doesn’t like that, they can walk out. There’s the door. They can move right now. But if everybody doesn’t understand that I’m running this show and this is the way we’re going to do it going forward, and the thing is in a meeting like that, I don’t even really need to hear a whole lot of, it’s not like a question and answer situation. It’s my way or the highway situation because right now, we’re playing with my money. That’s the way I would deal with it and that’s just me. I’m not talking about Tony Khan. That’s the way I would deal with it and if the guys that didn’t want to play ball, they could take their ball and go home.”
AEW also might fire CM Punk over the All Out media scrum incident. Everyone involved has been suspended at this point. Bischoff also believes Tony Khan should fire CM Punk. We’ll have to see what will become of Punk in the end. Keep checking back with Ringside News for constant updates!
