The AEW All Out media scrum ended in chaos after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally obliterating them in the process.

Punk was then 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.

Ringside News exclusively reported that CM Punk divided the AEW locker room, with a majority of people siding against him.

Things have not been going well for CM Punk for the past several months, even before the incident. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the internal sentiment in AEW is generally ‘anti-Punk.’


The sentiment of those in AEW among most talent, not all talent, was decidedly anti-Punk, between the television promo on Page, who is overall very popular with the talent, the scrum where he said Page had never done anything in the business which was taken as saying AEW means nothing in wrestling since Page had been one of the top stars since day one and headlined three successful PPV shows and been in arguably the best match in company history (Young Bucks vs. Kenny Omega & Page).

The fight also made the entire company look bad. At the same time, this week Dana White said that their very similar backstage situation with Khamzat Chimaev, Nate Diaz and Kevin Holland was not going to have any disciplinary action at all. It is said that nobody from WWE has had any actual contact with Punk and Guy, but Punk is close with Adam Pearce, who has some pull there, and Punk in the past has been extremely close to Paul Heyman, who also is someone that the higher-ups seem to listen to a lot

AEW Is also in talks to buy out CM Punk’s contract. We will have to wait and see what will become of CM Punk in the end.
