During the post-AEW All Out media scrum, CM Punk unleashed scathing tirade against Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks. This led to a huge Brawl backstage that ultimately changed the face of AEW for good. Now it seems Kenny Omega opened up about the brawl in question.

Since the All Out event, CM Punk has been absent from wrestling due to an injury to his triceps and underwent surgery to address it. He is currently recovering from his injury and has been making good progress in that regard.

As for The Elite, they have been regularly featured on AEW television as they are the Trios Tag Team Titles. That being said, The Elite and CM Punk haven’t really reached out to each other.

While speaking on the latest edition of Renee Paquette’s podcast ‘The Sessions,‘ Kenny Omega talked about the brawl as much as he could. Omega stated that it was just Unnecessary’ but also a serious matter.


There are things especially now when you’re in a multi-million billion dollar industry where there are sponsorships on the line, TV deal is on the line. It’s not like high school football.

It’s not, you know, a little tiff that you might have with someone on your fellow, amateur wrestling team or whatever, or maybe someone held a submission too long in jiu-jitsu training. It’s not that – these things shouldn’t even be happening.

It’s a shame that the general public and a lot of people aren’t ever going to know what went down, and how it could have been prevented or how it could have, you know, ended differently. That’s just sort of how things go again when it’s a big business operation.

I don’t think anyone is happy that it happened, or is proud that it happened, or anything like that. I think across the board, everyone thinks that was a terrible situation that was unnecessary.

It’s sort of like, ‘Hey, we know this thing happened. We heard this thing happened. It’s all over the dirt sheets. Why don’t we know what happened?’ And it’s like, we’re kind of sworn to secrecy.

We can’t say anything, legally. So that was the poopy part where I was like, well, why doesn’t anyone tell us what’s happening? And then you’re forced to form your own opinion or to come up with your own theory as to what exactly happened.”

CM Punk and The Elite have not mended fences while he remains on the shelf after suffering triceps injury. CM Punk could also return to AEW within the next couple of months. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see what will become of CM Punk in the end.
