The AEW All Out media scrum ended in complete disaster after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally decimating them. Now, we have a rumor to debunk.
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.
Recent reports also suggested that CM Punk’s dog Larry was injured during the backstage brawl. While speaking on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that when he spoke to the Elite’s side, he was told it was a complete lie.
“What was said is, basically, it’s an outright lie. I did have that told to me.”
“I had heard from his [CM Punk’s] side on and off since a couple of days right after it happened … Never in seven weeks have I heard anyone mention anything about the door opening [and] hitting the dog. The dog being hurt or anything like that. I just find that so weird.”
“The side that was trying to defend him, all along, never brought that up once, and now all of a sudden, that’s the story. And like I said, the other side just called it a lie.”
The AEW roster is also still banned from talking about the incident. It’s not clear when CM Punk will return to AEW television, but fans hope it is sooner rather than later.
