The media scrum following AEW All Out 2022 event ended in turmoil after CM Punk unleashed a scathing attack on Colt Cabana, Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally lashing out at all parties involved.
The incident caused significant damage to Punk’s reputation, and the repercussions have been felt throughout AEW since then. Interestingly enough, Chris Jericho has now claimed that he never signed an NDA after the Brawl Out fiasco.
For those not aware, Ace Steel was fired from AEW when he was a part of Brawl Out last year, where he allegedly bit Kenny Omega on the arm during the brawl. He was brought back and had been working remotely following Punk’s return as well. He got fired again shortly after CM Punk’s AEW firing as well.
CM Punk and Ace Steel’s attorney is Stephen P. New, who recently expressed his approval of working with Punk and Steel. In case you didn’t know, he is also Jim Cornette’s lawyer.
As previously reported, Stephen P. New had confirmed everyone involved in the backstage brawl had signed an NDA for life. Chris Jericho took to Twitter and claimed that he never signed an NDA after the Brawl Out fiasco.
”I didn’t sign one….”
It didn’t take long before CM Punk and Ace Steel’s attorney Stephen P. New saw what Chris Jericho had to say and responded to it, stating that the NDA should be in Chris Jericho’s employee handbook.
”It’s in your employee handbook unless you have a special one. We can figure it out.”
Ace Steel also gave his unwavering support to CM Punk after his WWE return. Regardless, AEW All Out forever marked the slow descent of the company for many reasons, something that the company is still trying to recover from.
