The AEW All Out media scrum ended in complete and utter disaster after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally ruining everyone mentioned and then some.

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.

An investigation into the matter was conducted and even now, it is still going on. According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there is still no timetable for the investigation to be concluded.

”Regarding the situation with those suspended over the fight (C.M. Punk, Young Bucks, Ace Steel and Kenny Omega), none of the five have heard anything from AEW. All of the five are continuing to get paid, and when you figure the contracts for four of the five are well in excess of $1 million, the total weekly outlay for people who are not working is enormous. At least one person (not one of the five) who was there has not been interviewed and there may be others. Most are frustrated because they want to be back working at this point. Punk may be the exception since he can’t work for a long time due to the surgery.


None are allowed to speak but several want to, but have no idea if they will ever be allowed to. Any rumors of anyone being fired, anyone being told they aren’t coming back or anything like that are incorrect as of midweek at least. None have been given any impression of a timetable. Some thought the Adam Page promo on Dynamite talking about his friends disappearing (Colt Cabana, Stu Grayson and Alan Angels) and his former friends disappearing (which was in reference to the Young Bucks & Omega almost for sure) as a sign that they are being acknowledged and it’s settled and they’ll be back soon is not the case, but they did allow the reference but not the names to be spoken.”

We will have to wait and see when the investigation will be concluded and whether all the aforementioned suspended talent will return as soon as possible.
