During the post-AEW All Out media scrum, CM Punk went ballistic on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. Things only got worse from then onwards. Even Ace Steel, who was fired, was bummed over the aftermath following the incident.

CM Punk got into an altercation with The Elite and this also involved Ace Steel, who was said to have thrown steel chair that hit Nick Jackson in the eye. Steel went absolutely ballistic and also bit Kenny Omega on the forearm.

As previously reported, Ace Steel is no longer with AEW following the brawl. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ace Steel was bummed over the aftermath and simply wishes to put the whole thing behind him.

“Steel was said to just want to move past this, was bummed that it happened and the online harassment of him has been gigantic, although that goes for every person involved in the story.”


Ace Steel’s release came as a shock to him as well. Ace Steel’s AEW firing was also no-brainer. We’ll have to see what’s next with Ace Steel, as it is likely he will not have any trouble finding a job elsewhere.
