CM Punk and the Young Bucks never had a chance to make up, and now Punk is no longer with AEW, which creates even more distance. There were some people in AEW who wanted the two sides to sit down with each other prior to everything exploding at AEW All In London.

We previously reported that AEW informed The Young Bucks that they received a legal letter concerning a skit on Being the Elite. It was under the terms of their deal with CM Punk that they not talk negatively about Punk or the Brawl Out situation, and the Second City Savior apparently believed that was violated.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that the Young Bucks found out about this legal letter around the same time that those in the company wanted them to meet with CM Punk. This request was reportedly never asked of Nick and Matt Jackson, because it was believed that they would have turned down the offer.

“It is true that people in the company wanted Punk and the Young Bucks to meet, but it was never asked because of the belief it would be turned down by the Young Bucks.”


It was previously reported that CM Punk and The Young Bucks were believed to have had a “brief interaction” before AEW All In London. Obviously, that did not mend any bridges.

We previously reported that there was meeting before AEW Collision to address the situation last week. AEW conducted interviews all week prior to releasing CM Punk, and they were also focused on the backstory behind Punk’s recent altercation.
