The AEW All Out media scrum ended in pure disaster after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally destroying everyone involved.
Punk was involved in a backstage brawl where he fought with The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. As previously reported, AEW has suspended everyone involved in the brawl. There was also the chance of Punk and Ace Steel getting fired.
Punk was also said to have suffered an injury during AEW All Out and even underwent surgery for the same. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, CM Punk sucked punched Matt Jackson as he knew a brawl was going to happen.
Both sides and every version is that Punk threw the first punch, that a fight broke out, and that Guy hit Nick Jackson in the eye with a chair very hard and bit Omega and pulled his hair. The motivations from the Punk side were that he believed a fight was going to happen and punches would be thrown so he beat them to the inevitable punch that the claim is Matt Jackson was going to throw. Those close to the other side labeled it as a sucker punch. From the Steel standpoint it was about protecting his wife, who had a broken foot and was in the room, although escalating the fight and using a weapon has to be questioned for a producer with that in mind with his wife in the room
Eric Bischoff also recently blasted CM Punk for being bitter and brittle. He will also be out of action for a long time, well into next year because of the injury. Things simply don’t look good for Punk in general.
