Following the AEW All Out event, the media scrum descended into chaos when CM Punk launched a vicious verbal assault against Colt Cabana, Page, and The Elite. This episode seriously damaged Punk’s reputation, and ever since then, AEW has been affected by the fallout. However, Kenny Omega believes that the air has cleared internally in the locker room.
Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks were among the targets of CM Punk’s tirade. Omega recently stated that the atmosphere has been pretty much cleared while speaking to Renee Paquette on The Sessions.
“Yeah, I really do. There was a while where, and I can understand the confusion. ‘We know this thing happened, we heard this thing happened, it’s all over the dirt sheets, why don’t we know what happened?’ We’re gone, we’re kind of sworn to secrecy, we can’t say anything, legally. That was the poopy part where it was, ‘why doesn’t anyone tell us what’s happening?’ Then you’re forced to form your own opinion or come up with your own theory as to what exactly happened.”
The people concerned, Kenny Omega, Young Bucks, CM Punk, and Tony Khan, are unable to legally discuss on the topic. Kenny Omega continued by commenting on the theories that fans have.
“Of course, especially when it’s like, ‘I’m more of a fan of one person than the other, so here’s the way I’m going to create this story so it puts this person in the best possible light.’ It might be that, chances are, it’s something else, or it might be a combination of various theories, and we might never get to speak about it. What’s important is that no one else was seriously injured, emerging from that, I’m so thankful for that, and we’ve moved on with life. I’m completely fine, it doesn’t dictate what I do, what I say, I’m sure the Bucks are in the same boat. I can’t speak to the other parties, hopefully they are doing well, and I mean that.”
CM Punk has been serving a suspension for his actions while continuing to heal from an injury he suffered at the event. This has been another prime reason for his absence from AEW programming.
On the other side, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks returned to AEW last year. It is yet to be seen if the Best in the World will make his comeback after being spotted in the gym to heal from his injury and continuing to tease his return on various occasions.
