All Elite Wrestling fired CM Punk on Saturday after an investigation was carried out into the fight between Punk and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry backstage at AEW All In last Sunday.
AEW President Tony Khan opened Saturday’s episode of Collision in Chicago by addressing his decision to fire Punk.
He said that Punk endangered the lives of innocent people backstage, which is why he had to terminate his contract. He also stated that he felt endangered at a pro wrestling show for the first time ever because of Punk.

During Punk’s fight with Perry, monitors fell on Khan and Punk almost got aggressive with him when he was separated from Perry. Punk also had some harsh words for Khan on the day of All In.
According to PWTorch, there was more that happened between Punk & Khan behind closed doors, than just monitors falling on Khan:
“There was something behind a closed door also that may come out or may not, depending on how all this plays out.
When Punk quit and chewed out Tony, there was an element of that that was not in front of dozens of people that others have said they’re trying to get confirmation on but I’m confident in based on my sourcing, which I won’t get into.
There’s other elements of it than just the monitors.”
