Another backstage fight and another suspension for CM Punk, just a different year.

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry took a shot at CM Punk during the AEW All In Zero Hour on Sunday. He told Punk to “go cry a river” after using real glass in a Limousine spot with HOOK during their FTW Championship match.

Punk had tried to stop Perry from using real glass in a taped segment on Collision a few months ago as Punk found it unsafe and thought that Perry wanted to use real glass so that he wouldn’t have to show up to work next week. Punk reportedly even told Perry that he could work on Dynamite if he wanted to do that stuff because they don’t do dangerous stuff like that on AEW Collision.

As noted before, Fightful Select reported that Perry had a physical altercation with Punk when he went backstage after his match with HOOK. The altercation reportedly involved physicality and a lot of yelling.

PWInsider Elite reported that Punk “went after” or even “hit” Perry. They also noted that Perry was told to leave the Wembley Stadium immediately after the incident and Punk was also told to go to his hotel soon after.

Punk’s side told Fightful in an update that Perry approached Punk backstage and “stepped in his face” and “bumped” Punk. Punk was said to have then pushed Perry. Perry allegedly “came at Punk and got choked.”

Some other people claimed to Fightful that it was Punk who approached Perry, exchanged words and then Punk “threw a punch”, grabbed a “front face lock”, which was broken up.

According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, the belief within AEW is that both Punk and Perry are suspended while the fight between them is being investigated. This also means that they will not be able to work the All Out pay-per-view this Sunday in Chicago.

AEW President Tony Khan said the following about this incident on the All In media scrum:

“I can’t comment on it at this time beyond what I’m about to say. Yes, there was an incident backstage before we went live on tonight’s show. We are investigating it, and until I learn more about what happened, I can’t comment on it at this time, but I did want to be honest with you and tell you that that is the case.” 

Punk was also suspended last year alongside The Elite when the brawl between the two sides at All Out was being investigated.
