• Jim Ross Comments On Ace Steel Getting Fired From AEW For The All Out PPV Fight
According to the Wrestling Observer, it is now confirmed that AEW has fired backstage producer Ace Steel for the backstage fight at the All Out 2022 pay-per-view.
Steel fought from CM Punk’s side, where he hit Nick Jackson in the eye with a Steel Chair and bit Kenny Omega.
WWE Hall Of Famer & AEW Commentator Jim Ross had the following to say about Steel’s departure on his podcast:
“He’s a smart guy. He has a lot of product knowledge. Solid hand. I thought he did a nice job. I didn’t work with him directly a lot. I have seen him at TV and he was always friendly and approachable.
I’m sorry to hear that because I thought he was a good hand and did a nice job there. Things have a way of working out, you never say never, but I always thought he did a nice job for us. He was very loyal to CM Punk, nothing wrong with that, they were buddies.
I’m assuming CM Punk is the guy that got Ace Steel his job. I don’t know where all of that is going. I hate to see anybody lose a job, lose a paycheck.
While he was there, he seemed to be a viable asset, but again, I didn’t work with him directly. I didn’t have any issues, pro or con, with him. The bottom line is, another guy lost his job. That’s what’s regrettable.
He’s got skills. I would think, if given a fair shake within the landscape of wrestling in general, he’ll find some work. Smart guy. I hope it works out well. I regret that anybody, anywhere in wrestling, loses their job.”
