While CM Punk left AEW a while back, he is still involved in one of the biggest controversies in the company’s history. Well it doesn’t sound like the biggest one, AEW hasn’t been able to get that out of their history books. 

Punk joined WWE at Survivor Series 2023. Right from his debut, fans have been loving his run in the company, trying to forget his ‘controversy’ from the Tony Khan – led company. However, the latter is adamant on keeping it in the media, which fans think is to draw attention for their shows. 

On the April 10th episode of AEW Dynamite, backstage footage from All-In was featured where Punk was seen having heated argument with Jack Perry. Though it didn’t end up anything like AEW fans would have wanted, CM Punk’s revelations for the incident turned out to be true. 

However, as per Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Radio, AEW didn’t air the entire footage that they should have. Apparently, AEW didn’t share the footage where Punk threatened Tony Khan backstage, which is still a questionable decision from the company’s side. 


“The problem is, and even though, as you talked to me about this a couple of days ago, the incident with Tony was not going to be shown, and it wasn’t shown. But now what’s happened is that people are going like ‘Tony said, he threatened my life. Where’s the footage?’ I mean, he did say that and by showing the footage and having nothing of that, it just made you know it just wasn’t well thought out. I suppose you could have shown that footage too. But that doesn’t even play into storyline at all.” 

Though Tony Khan claimed that CM Punk threatened his life, it won’t be a big surprise if it turns out to be the other way around. While AEW has been trying to take a dig at the Best in the World, their fans kept on chanting Punk’s name when the footage was being aired. Ringside News will keep you updated on this story.
