CM Punk’s return to WWE at Survivor Series 2023 catapulted him to one of the biggest names in the wrestling industry. However, his tenure at AEW was marked by a notable incident at AEW All In 2023, where he had a physical altercation with Jack Perry backstage, ultimately leading to his release from the Tony Khan-led company and his subsequent return to WWE.

In a recent appearance on the MMA Hour, Punk addressed the altercation with Perry at All In, shedding light on how a simple suggestion escalated into a heated confrontation. Following his comments on AEW during the interview, several stars from the roster came forward to address the situation.

During this week’s AEW Collision, it was announced that the Young Bucks would present backstage footage from AEW All In. While the reason behind this revelation was initially unclear, recent update from the Wrestling Observer Radio provided clarity on the matter. According to the episode, Tony Khan was displeased with Punk’s comments and sought to set the record straight by airing the truth.

Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez discussed the situation, confirming that AEW intends to air the Jack Perry-CM Punk footage from All In on Dynamite. Alvarez noted that Khan was particularly upset about Punk’s interview and had wanted to air the footage for some time. The decision to broadcast it now appears to be in response to Punk’s recent remarks.


Alvarez: “It is true that on Dynamite, Tony Khan is airing the Jack Perry-CM Punk footage from All In. It is not to bait and switch. When I first saw the graphic saying the Young Bucks when to show footage from All In, I immediately thought, ‘Okay, well, you know, the Young Bucks are heel characters, it’s going to be some goofy thing or whatever.’ But then I asked and I’m not talking like one person. Multiple people.”

Meltzer: “Well, I definitely can say that I definitely got it 100% confirmed.”

Alvarez: “It is 100%, they’re airing the footage. Tony was very upset about CM Punk’s interview. And apparently, I was told that he wanted to air this footage a long time ago. And for whatever reason, he did not. And now, I guess because of the timing and the interview and what CM Punk said, he is going to air it. And we’ve heard many sides of the story about what happened. We’re going to see Wednesday, but I think it’s safe to say that if it were the story that CM Punk told, I don’t know why Tony would air the footage.”

The airing of this footage on Dynamite is anticipated to provide insight into the altercation and potentially offer differing perspectives on the incident. As the situation unfolds, Ringside News will continue to provide updates on this developing story.
