CM Punk has left All Elite Wrestling, according to Stokely Hathaway’s recent comments. On Renee Paquette‘s podcast ‘The Sessions,’ Hathaway, the manager of AEW faction The Firm, stated: “Everything that was supposed to happen with The Firm did not happen.” Back at All Out, what happened right after the Pay-Per-View was a big part of it.
“[The person] with whom we were supposed to have a direct feud is no longer with the company.”
Hathaway expressed regret on the podcast for not having the opportunity to work with the former AEW World Champion.
That was one thing I was looking forward to because I was hand-chosen for that role. I’m just going to say it. I don’t know the specifics about people choosing sides. I just know that CM Punk said ‘hey. I want to work with this guy.’ That means a lot, regardless of what has happened.
Tony Khan remained silent on any CM Punk matters following All Out due to the investigation. Until now, the most recent word was that Punk was still under contract with AEW after contract buyout talks fell through due to disagreements over a non-compete clause.
