In a surprising turn of events leading up to the much-anticipated CM Punk vs. Samoa Joe match at the All In pay-per-view, an altercation involving CM Punk and fellow wrestler Jack Perry, took place backstage.

According to recent reports, the incident reportedly included shoving between the two individuals, with speculation that CM Punk may have either thrown a punch or attempted to choke out Perry. The altercation occurred just before Punk’s scheduled match.

Additional insight into the aftermath of the altercation was provided in the latest episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio podcast. Bryan Alvarez shared that following CM Punk’s victory over Samoa Joe and his return to the backstage area, security personnel were swiftly on the scene. They escorted Punk to his dressing room for safety. On the other hand, Jack Perry was allegedly instructed to leave Wembley Stadium and was subsequently escorted out of the venue.

“He [CM Punk] goes to the backstage area and immediately there is security there and security escorts CM Punk back to his dressing room,” said Bryan Alvarez. “Jack Perry was then told to leave and he was removed from the building. CM Punk stayed in his dressing room with security, for I’m not sure how long, but eventually security came and removed him from the building.”


Acknowledging the incident, Tony Khan addressed the situation during post-media scrum. Khan confirmed the occurrence of the altercation and informed the media that an ongoing investigation was underway. However, Khan opted to refrain from providing further details or commentary on the matter.

The CM Punk vs. Samoa Joe match kicked off the All In show as the opening bout, with Punk emerging victorious by retaining the “Real” AEW World Championship. Concurrently, Jack Perry participated in the event, engaging in a match against Hook for the FTW Championship, which he ultimately lost.
