CM Punk is one of the biggest names on the AEW roster, but his ego has clearly drawn the ire of many at this point. He is truly a controversy magnet and his latest one is regarding a backstage fight with Jack Perry. Now it appears many talent believe both CM Punk and Jack Perry are at fault for the backstage fight.
During AEW All In Zero Hour, Jack Perry made reference to his controversy with CM Punk when it came to using real glass. This led to CM Punk and Perry having a backstage fight prior to Punk’s match against Samoa Joe at All In London and a lot of drama ensued afterwards.
It was reported that CM Punk and Jack Perry have been suspended following their backstage confrontation. According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Samoa Joe took a leadership role following the incident to calm things down. It was also noted that many talent believe both CM Punk and Jack Perry are at fault for the backstage fight.
”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.”
There is also hope within AEW that there will be more information about CM Punk and Jack Perry’s investigation by All Out this week. Despite the drama, CM Punk is still advertised for upcoming episodes of AEW Collision. We’ll have to wait and see what will become of them both in the end.
