AEW was fired from multiple AEW contracts after his backstage fight with Jack Perry at All In London, and now he is free agent. It is unclear if he has a non-compete clause in his contract, but that seems to be a moot point. That release was seen in different ways internally, and now we are getting a bit more information about the final nail in the coffin was for Punk in AEW.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the committee investigating the CM Punk ordeal interviewed a lot of people. In fact, they talked to people who didn’t even witness that squabble with Jack Perry backstage at All In London.
“I people who were interviewed who were not there [to witness the backstage brawl] and it was about background, you know, the history and things like that.”
It was also noted that those people interviewed by AEW’s investigation committee were also asked “how things had changed over the last year, and what the solution to problems would be.” There were “a lot of questions that didn’t have to do with this incident.”
In the end, CM Punk was fired over that incident backstage at All In London with Jack Perry, but Dave Meltzer noted that “the lawyers talked about more than Sunday, they talked about everything, the stuff that’s come out, and lots of stuff that hasn’t come out.”
We will have to see if AEW fans are vocal about this, but signs were confiscated at Collision. Only time will tell what kind of chants they break out, because there was an inventive one going before Collision this week.
Only time will tell if we get more information about this situation, especially regarding that information that hasn’t come out. As always, stay tuned with your friends here at Ringside News for more. Also, join us in the comments to let us know what you think!
