CM Punk was stripped of his AEW world title following a brawl with The Elite at All Out. Fans haven’t heard from The Second City Saint since the incident. The reason behind Punk’s silence has finally been revealed.
According to Wrestling Inc, CM Punk was asked to stay quite on the matter, and he obliged. Moreover, Punk’s rant against Adam Page, Colt Cabana and The Elite during the post-show scrum didn’t trigger the brawl. The outlet reported that Punk acted in self defense after The Elite barged into his room.
We’ve been told that AEW has not reached out to Punk since the incident following the All Out media scrum, in which Punk and his friend and trainer, Ace Steel, reportedly got into a backstage brawl with AEW EVPs Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. Sources indicate that after the brawl, Punk was asked to stay quiet, and agreed to do so.
From the perspective of Punk’s camp, the scrum itself — which became the talk of the wrestling world due to Punk’s comments on Colt Cabana, “Hangman” Adam Page, and The Elite — didn’t seem like a big deal, and only escalated once Punk’s locker room door was “kicked in” and accidentally hit Punk’s dog, Larry, in the face. At a pre-scheduled veterinarian appointment a few days later, Punk was informed that two of Larry’s teeth had been knocked loose and had to be removed.
Punk recently returned to social media, but hasn’t made any mention of the brawl so far. We’ll have to wait to see if Punk decides to break his silence in the days to come.
