CM Punk and Jack Perry’s incident backstage at All In London is still stirring up attention. The Second City Savior was set to wrestle Samoa Joe, and thankfully, Joe was around to handle business.
We previously repoted that neurtal source, who is not a wrestler, said that CM Punk sucker punched Jack Perry. That is not a good look, but luckily, the whole messy ordeal was also caught on camera.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Samoa Joe was on hand to be “a real leader” in the situation when CM Punk was “yelling” that he quit the company. Thankfully, Joe was there, and he was able to make sure that his match with CM Punk went down as scheduled.
“That person said that once they were separated, Punk lunged in Khan’s direction but a number of people got in his way while Punk was yelling ‘I Quit.’ Monitors were knocked down during all this. Joe was very upset and went to calm Punk down.”
“Another person said that many of the wrestlers think both Perry and Punk were at fault, and when the talent found out, they got more motivated to put on great matches.”
“It kind of brought everyone together and Samoa Joe was a real leader” was one comment made.”
“After the incident, Punk said it was quitting. He was scheduled in the PPV opener against Samoa Joe.”
It’s a good thing that Samoa Joe was around, because he was able to apparently do some good in this situation. CM Punk went out as scheduled and had his match against Samoa Joe. It’s a good thing that they were able to open up the show, but the situation was still unfortunate.
AEW has hope that they will have some kind after an investigation into the matter. If anything, the company certainly has lot of things to figure out. Sadly, CM Punk will probably miss All Out now because of it.
