AEW has gone through a lot of changes since the incident at All Out back in September, where CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Page, and The Young Bucks. The brawl that took place right after that certainly made matters worse, as everyone involved was suspended. It has been almost three months since the incident, with CM Punk’s AEW status still remaining a big question mark. That being said, Dax Harwood just wants Punk and The Elite to work together.
CM Punk has been out of action since All Out as he injured his triceps. He underwent surgery for the condition and is currently on the road to recovery. In the meantime, The Elite have returned to AEW television and continue to be regularly featured there.
Following the AEW All Out brawl, CM Punk has only managed to draw the ire of fans and pro wrestlers alike. While speaking on the first episode of FTR with Dax Harwood, Dax Harwood pleaded with CM Punk and The Elite to be unselfish and work together.
“This is my plea to all four guys. Please find a way to make it work. If we can make it work, we can set up the future of professional wrestling for a long time and we can change the course of professional wrestling for a very long time. When you think about it, unselfishly, we’re doing this for 20-30 years down the road so guys and girls can make a living.”
CM Punk also allegedly did not want to become the AEW World Champion. CM Punk is also willing to move on from his AEW contract. Only time will tell whether The Second City Saint will end up leaving AEW in the future. For now, things do not look very bright for CM Punk.
