CM Punk and Ace Steel are reportedly in hot water following the recent backstage fight with The Elite as the police are involved. Some even believe that the duo are done with AEW.
The whole drama kicked off when CM Punk went on a rant about Colt Cabana, Hangman Page and The AEW Executive Vice Presidents Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks during the AEW media scrum on Sunday.
Punk who defeated Jon Moxley in the main event of All Out was visibly unhappy following the rumours regarding Colt Cabana and the comments made by Hangman Adam Page during a promo on AEW dynamite.
Punk called out the EVPs (Bucks and Omega) and described them as irresponsible people who couldn’t manage a target.
The comments did not sit well with Omega and The Bucks as they confronted Punk backstage and this led to a brawl between the stars as punches were thrown and they had to be pulled apart.
According to Fightful, Ace Steel who is Punk’s friend and trainer bit Omega and threw a chair at Nick Jackson which hit him in the eye. Punk also reportedly threw punches at the AEW Trios champions.
Fightful select also reported that AEW officials believe that the incident will have legal ramifications and that could be the reason why we haven’t heard any response from the company.
Eddie Kingston was recently suspended following a backstage confrontation with Sammy Guevara. Therefore, what action will Tony Khan take on CM Punk and the others is something to keep an eye on.
CM Punk didn't follow the script, leaving AEW confused and now CEO Tony Khan has given his reaction.
