In a strange move, AEW decided to air the backstage footage between CM Punk and Jack Perry from All In. There was no audio and while Punk seemed like the aggressor, the video is open to interpretation. This was done as a direct shot to Punk’s comments on The MMA Hour. Although, AEW claims they are doing this to further the upcoming FTR vs The Young Bucks match.

No matter the reasoning, it got fans talking and also increased viewership. Still, some see this as a low move by AEW that could cost them down the line. On Wise Choices, Eric Bischoff ripped AEW and called for change. “I’ll normally get on here [and I’ll try to point out from my perspective], a different approach for Dynamite to take,” said Bischoff. “Perhaps, a different approach for Tony Khan to take, but I’m at a loss. I don’t think there’s any hope. I honestly don’t think there’s any hope for AEW as long as Tony Khan’s in charge.”
