CM Punk and The Elite are not on good terms, and things were really kicked up a notch at All Out last year. Punk, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks were involved in Brawl Out following the event, something that they are still dealing with to this day.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that The Young Bucks were informed that AEW received a legal letter over a Being the Elite skit. It was said that the skit violated the terms of the agreement where they wouldn’t talk about CM Punk or the Brawl Out situation.

The report noted that CM Punk’s name was never mentioned, but the company still received a letter about the situation. It seems that this skit might not have had anything to do with CM Punk or Brawl Out, either.

“AEW had informed The Young Bucks of a legal letter sent to the company that claimed they had violated the agreement from months back to not talk negatively about the other publicly (Adam Page was not part of the agreement).”


“Evidently it was from a BTE skit that was a storyline that had started years earlier about Matt Jackson screwing up an endorsement deal and was brought back where he had secured some sort of another deal that was going to make them all rich, only to have that screw up and even with their new contract, they were left broke and couldn’t retire even if they wanted to, and they were all furious that they could never leave wrestling. In the skit, they wanted Matt to apologize for screwing up. Punk’s name was never mentioned.”

CM Punk was fired from AEW after his ordeal that resulted in an investigation after All In London. His exit from AEW was sudden, and it left stories to be re-written. That being said, it seems that there is still interest in the Second City Savior’s services.

We previously reported that Impact Wrestling is very excited about the idea of making an offer to CM Punk. We will have to see if he does anything there. There is also the possibility that he could show up in the NWA and challenge for their World Title.

We will keep a close eye on CM Punk, and AEW, right here at Ringside News. Odds are, the two sides will never work together again, but you can also never say never in pro wrestling.

CM Punk has options out there, but where should he go next? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
