The AEW All Out media scrum ended in complete chaos after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally eviscerating 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.
CM Punk is currently out of action due to injury, but the drama still remains, and also its aftereffects. While speaking on the “83 Weeks” podcast, Eric Bischoff if Warner Bros. Discovery might just pull the plug on AEW after all the backstage turmoil.
“The honest answer is I have no idea,” Bischoff said. “All I can tell you is from past experience not only in wrestling, but especially outside of wrestling because I’ve created and produced probably no fewer than 15 different shows for no fewer than eight or 10 cable outlets, and traditionally, typically what happens is your network is very hands-on in a developmental process, throughout the entire production process, very much involved in creative. That’s normally what happens in television.
At what point are they going to feel that they need to have more hands-on creative? That’s hard to say, that’s really hard to say not being there,” Bischoff said. “I think the bigger challenge right now is how credible does AEW look as a long-term investment if you’re a television company seeing the kind of dysfunction that we’ve all seen.
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. We’ll have to wait and see whether CM Punk will get fired or not.
