• CM Punk Possibly Injured During Backstage Fight After All Out
As we all know by now, AEW World Champion CM Punk’s comments at the All Out media scrum resulted in a fight backstage.
Punk threw punches at Young Bucks, AEW Producer & Punk’s friend Ace Steel bit Kenny Omega & pulled his hair and Nick Jackson got hit in the eye with a chair.
According to the Wrestling Observer, this is not a work and is turning into a legal situation:
“It absolutely, 100% it’s not a work. I can tell you, there’s legal people involved – a lot of legal situations involved and it can be very messy. I think that’s one of the reasons why AEW is not allowed to talk about it.
There’s gonna be lawsuits, there’s gonna be legal issues, there’s gonna be investigations. This is not a work.
There are suspensions stemming from the Sunday fight that was a result of Punk’s post-All Out press conference comments where he called out ‘the EVPs’ of AEW in addition to Hangman Page, Colt Cabana and MJF with inflammatory language.
Ace Steel and Pat Buck will not be at Wednesday’s Dynamite, but it’s unconfirmed if they are officially suspended. Others involved in the fight will also not be brought to Buffalo.”
The Observer is also reporting that word going on is that Punk got injured during this fight.
Speculation is that he either tore his pec or injured his biceps/shoulder.
