AEW fired CM Punk, which was a bit of a surprise. Now, it seems that the company doesn’t want anyone supporting the Second City Savior on their television programs, especially in Chicago.

Click here for our complete coverage of AEW Collision this week.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that a lot of people in AEW had no idea CM Punk would be fired. This was a bit of a surprise when the word was handed down as well.

It was also noted that security was taking signs for CM Punk before Collision went live. It was also stated that this move was expected.


“Security was confiscating CM Punk signs ahead of the show, which was to be expected.”

During that chaotic backstage moment, 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.

We will have to see if AEW fans sneak in CM Punk signs for All Out. Only time will tell what kind of chants they break out, because there was an inventive one going before Collision this week.

CM Punk was released from AEW, and his spot at All Out was actually filled by a freshly cleared Bryan Danielson, as he will take on Ricky Starks.
