AEW fired CM Punk from his contract after he got in a backstage confrontation with Jack Perry. There is a lot to unpack in that situation, and it appears that Chicago fans have not let us down in terms of how inventive they can be.

Click here to find out what ultimately led to CM Punk’s firing after AEW’s investigation.

Sean Sapp noted on X that Chicago fans before Collision are already going at it with CM Punk chants. In fact, there are dueling chants, as fans are having a lot of fun with an old feud that Punk has with another Chicago native.

“There were dueling ‘CM Punk/Colt Cabana’ chants ahead of AEW Collision.”


Jack Perry is not at Collision this week, and CM Punk obviously won’t be there. We will keep our eye out for more on this story, because there could be even more to come out. There is footage of the fight, after all.

We previously reported that some talent believe that both CM Punk and Jack Perry are at fault in the situation. Still, the only person we have heard an escalated punishment for was the Second City Savior. Apparently, there are also some fans who are rooting for Colt Cabana in this situation.

CM Punk threatened to quit, but he wrestled that “Real” World Title match in Wembley Stadium anyway. After he won that match, Tony Khan suspended CM Punk and also Jack Perry, something that Punk was informed of through his attorney. We have not been told how he was notified of his release.
