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, character assassinating 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.
It has been almost two weeks since the incident, but AEW’s reputation has certainly taken a hit due to that. While speaking on Cornette’s Drive Thru, Jim Cornette shot down the claim that the brawl was a work.
“Because it’s not a work and you can’t put this together where anybody benefits in any way whatsoever if it is a work, if it was a work, I should say. Again, from the Montreal Screwjob to whatever everybody wants to think that everything in wrestling is the work because 98% of everything or 99 or whatever the overwhelming statistic is, is a work. But I think now people are trying to figure out a way to justify this in their own mind as being a work because it’s so ridiculous.”
The AEW locker room is also standing behind The Young Bucks after all the drama. With CM Punk likely out of action for around 8 months, we’ll have to see what AEW will have planned for fans.
