CM Punk was released by AEW, and many people are commenting about the subject right now. Needless to say, it is big topic of conversation for all pro wrestling fans. Those in AEW are also buzzing about the big news.

CM Punk actually threatened to quit, but he wrestled that “Real” World Title match in Wembley Stadium anyway, thanks to Samoa Joe, who was real leader in the situation. After Punk won that match, Tony Khan suspended him and also Jack Perry, something that Punk was informed of through his attorney.

PW Insider noted behind their paywall that some people backstage at Collision are “really down” about CM Punk’s release from the company. The show is also in Chicago, which could add another element to things.

We are told that the reaction to the CM Punk AEW termination backstage at tonight’s Collision in Chicago depends on the person.  Some are really down on it. Others, as you can imagine, feel it was the right move and are happy about it.


It is also important to note that CM Punk curated the Collision roster, full of his allies. Only time will tell what the roster looks like in a few months, but they don’t have to worry about his enemies working on the show now.

CM Punk had a few issues prior to his blow-up with Jack Perry at All In London. The story about Dolph Ziggler’s brother, Ryan Nemeth, not being allowed at Collision because he had issues with CM Punk made a lot of headlines a couple of weeks ago.
