AEW had a historic night at Wembley Stadium in London this past weekend, setting a new record for paid attendance. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all happiness and celebrations that night, as not only was there backstage drama between CM Punk and Jack Perry, one talent got injured during their match.
AEW Talent Injured During All In
There was a rumor going around that House of Black stablemate, Brody King (who also happens to be a close friend of CM Punk), injured his hand when he punched a wall out of frustration. According to a new report, this is not the case.
Bryan Alvarez from Wrestling Observer notes on the social media platform X, that King injured his hand during his All In match. Alvarez reveals he was told that King “punching the wall” backstage and “breaking his hand” never happened.
Bryan goes on to say Brody’s hand was injured on the guardrails during his match. At this time, the severity of his hand injury is not known.
It’s also not known if he’ll miss any in-ring action. WNZ will keep fans updated on this ongoing story.
The House Rules no holds barred six-man tag match had Max Caster and Anthony Bowens of the Acclaimed teaming up with Billy Gunn, versus The House of Black’s King, Malakai Black, and Buddy Matthews (with Julia Hart). When all was said and done, The Acclaimed, plus Gunn, scored the victory.
Meanwhile, CM Punk managed to make news once again, post-event, when he had a backstage confrontation with Jack Perry. The drama started months ago during an episode of Collision where Perry wanted to use “real glass” for a segment and Punk nixed the idea, worried it would be a hazard.
Fast-forward to the All In pre-show, where Perry faced Hook for the FTW title. The two fought on top of a limo, and Jack looked into the camera during the battle saying something along the lines of the glass being “real”.
Of course, this rubbed Punk the wrong way, thus the altercation. The drama started when Jack entered the back area after his match, running into Punk, who was right there, because he was a part of the opening match.
The good news is that Brody King was not affected by the drama. However, the bad news is, he still did suffer an injury that night.
