CM Punk was fired from AEW, but he already had heat with The Elite. One new story going around places the Jackson Brothers and the Second City Savior together, if only for a brief time, but there wasn’t much talking, if any at all.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that CM Punk and The Young Bucks might have had an interaction at All In London. At this point, it is clear that The Elite were not open to talk with Punk.
Those close to Punk say that the meeting was scheduled to happen, while those close to the Elite are adamant it was never going to happen. We have heard at least that a meeting was pitched, which seems to be something all sides agree with. We’d also heard that there was a brief interaction between Young Bucks and Punk in London, but when we asked Punk’s camp about that, it was clear he was frustrated that The Elite still weren’t open to talking to him.
It was also noted that it was not said that “Punk is speaking with much of anyone thus far, the quietest we’ve heard out of that camp in quite a while. We haven’t heard that Ace Steel will be affected. He’s still serving as effectively an off-site consultant and is under a deal until September 2024.”
We previously reported that there was meeting before AEW Collision. AEW conducted interviews all week, and they were also focused on the backstory behind Punk’s recent altercation.
The report from Fightful also noted that, “CM Punk does still have the usual supporters within the company, though we have not heard of anyone else who knew the decision was coming besides those on the disciplinary committee.”
The specifics behind CM Punk lunging at Tony Khan are still up in the air. If anything, we know that Punk isn’t talking yet, and Tony Khan has not commented either.
