AEW All Out Media Scrum and the fight that ensued backstage had a lot more names involved than the four currently suspended. While a third-party internal investigation is underway, a case can be made that some suspensions have been lifted.
According to a report from Fightful Select, Michael Nakazawa, Pat Buck, Christopher Daniels and Brandon Cutler had their suspensions lifted within a week of the brawl.
We’ve heard of a couple of other names that were nearby, but weren’t suspended. The only implication given to us was that because they weren’t physically involved in any capacity, it wasn’t needed. That hasn’t been outright confirmed to us.
Pat Buck was backstage at AEW Dynamite, while Daniels and Nakazawa had a scheduled trip to Japan. Kenny Omega is in Japan too to promote the new game and build better ties with other possibilities for AEW at the Tokyo Game Show.
Ace Steel’s status is uncertain while The Elite remains suspended as of this writing. CM Punk suffered a legit injury so he is out of action, We reported that Kenny Omega tried to safeguard Punk’s dog Larry and that speaks volumes about his professionalism and his approach.
AEW has not confirmed any update through their own platforms or the media. We need to wait and see if these reports from Select get the right response from people in the community or the company they claim it from.
What do you think could be the reason behind this situation and who should be resuspended? Sound off in the comments.
