CM Punk is undoubtedly one of the most controversial wrestlers in the business right now and a proper heat magnet. With his AEW return in inevitable, reports suggested that The Elite don’t want to work with Punk. Now it appears there has been a call to fire The Elite for refusing to work with CM Punk.

CM Punk chose violence when he went nuclear on The Elite during the post-AEW All Out media scrum. He would then get into a brawl with The Elite afterwards and changed the course of AEW in a big way.

CM Punk has not been seen since All Out last year and fans wondered when he would be back. It was then reported that The Second City Saint will be returning to AEW programming as the main attraction for their new show AEW Collision, which will be two-hour show.

Reports have also suggested that The Young Bucks do not want to work with CM Punk whatsoever. That said, Kenny Omega is more open to working with Punk. While speaking on the Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Disco Infero stated that The Elite should be fired for refusing to work with CM Punk.


If the story is true that The Elite does not want to work with Punk, I get rid of them. I would absolutely. Tony needs to let one of these two factions go. He needs to either get rid of Kenny and the Bucks, or he needs to get rid of Punk….If you’re doing business, okay? And it’s come to the point where it’s either us or them. You need to get rid of the people that bring you less to the table than the other guy. Punk’s brings way more to the table than Kenny and the Bucks, and that’s just a fact.

Since when are you guys such icons in this business where like you could refuse to work because you’ve had an issue with somebody? Every wrestler in the past that’s far more popular than you guys have ever been have worked things out and done business. So if you guys don’t want to do business, bro, just let them go. You’ll probably be saving a lot of money. They need to cut some costs too. But if they’re not willing to work with Punk, get get rid of them. They’re useless.

We will have to wait and see whether Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks eventually end up working with CM Punk in the future. For the time being, it seems unlikely.

What do you think about the reports suggesting that The Elite doesn’t want to work with CM Punk? Do you agree with Disco Inferno’s statement that they should be fired for refusing to work with him? Leave a comment.
