All Elite Wrestling has announced that CM Punk’s AEW contract has been terminated by the company’s President Tony Khan.

This decision comes after Punk got into a fight with “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry backstage at the AEW All In pay-per-view last Sunday after Perry took a shot at Punk during the show’s Zero Hour.

Punk returned to AEW on the debut episode of Collision back in June after being away from the company for 9 months.

He got into a brawl with The Elite last year and had problems with multiple people in the company.

Below is AEW’s statement:

“All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has terminated the wrestler and employment agreements between Phillip Brooks (CM Punk) and AEW with cause, effective immediately. The termination was confirmed today by Tony Khan, CEO, General Manager and Head of Creative of AEW.

The termination follows a weeklong internal investigation of an incident occurring back stage at AEW — All In London on Sunday, August 27. Following the investigation, the AEW Discipline Committee met and later convened with outside legal counsel before making a unanimous recommendation to Khan that CM Punk be terminated with cause.
Khan offered the following statement:

“Phil played an important role within AEW and I thank him for his contributions. The termination of his AEW contracts with cause is ultimately my decision, and mine alone. Of course, I wish I didn’t have to share this news, which may come as a disappointment to many of our fans. Nevertheless, I am making the decision in the best interests of the many amazing people who make AEW possible every week — our talent, staff, venue operators and many others whose efforts are unsung but essential to bringing our fans great shows on television and at arenas and stadiums throughout the world.””
