CM Punk Released By AEW After All In Fiasco
CM Punk coming to AEW was a huge moment as the promotion was really gaining momentum. Now, Punk has been released following the incident during All In.
For those unaware, the show started with absolute chaos behind the scenes. Jack Perry took part on the pre-show and in a spot with a limousine, he took a direct shot at Punk.
At one of the previous Collision shows, Perry wanted to use real glass in a backstage segment and Punk said ‘no’ because it was too hazardous. Therefore, that is why Perry mocked Punk during his pre-show match.
When Perry went to the back, Punk was there as he was opening the pay per view card. They traded words and reports stated things got physical.
Samoa Joe, who was Punk’s opponent, was praised for helping lead the roster after the drama.
There are numerous sides to the story on who started it, but AEW suspended both while the matter was reviewed. Based off the investigation, Punk is now gone while there is no update on Perry.
AEW issued the following press release about Punk’s departure and Khan also had words to share.

Honestly, Punk had this coming as he seemed to only care about his agenda. And, this is the second major issue with him in less than 12 months.
Last September, Punk ripped The Elite and that led to a backstage brawl. A bunch of suspensions were handed-out, yet everyone eventually returned.
Despite all the problems Punk, and Perry too, created, AEW was able to produce a historic evening at All In from England.
