The AEW All Out media scrum led to pure chaos after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Page, and The Young Bucks. The after-effects of the incident continue to be felt even now. In fact, CM Punk’s old-school mentality was blamed for the All Out fiasco.

CM Punk has been on the shelf since All Out after suffering a triceps injury. He underwent surgery for the injury and is currently recuperating.

While speaking with Wrestling Inc, Brian Pillman Jr. discussed the backstage brawl at AEW All Out. Pillman blamed CM Punk’s old-school mentality for the brawl.

Punk’s got an old-school mentality. I think at the WWE, and maybe, perhaps, during those years coming up there, that would’ve been a solution. That would’ve been acceptable. Sticking up for whatever you believe in. I mean, who knows what was going through his head? Whatever. But that’s just not the culture at AEW. That’s not how we work. That’s not how the company was founded.

AEW is also possibly not interested in buying out CM Punk’s contract. It remains to be seen what will become of The Second City Saint in the end. For the time being, things don’t look for him.

Do you think CM Punk will return to AEW? Sound off in the comments!
