CM Punk And The Elite Have Yet To Mend Fences Since All Out

All Elite Wrestling held their All Out PPV Event last September 4th from the NOW Arena in the Chicago suburb of Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Immediately following the All Out PPV Event, a media scrum would take place and a major brawl would ensue between CM Punk, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) and Ace Steel following CM Punk’s comments on The Elite and that would lead to AEW stripping Punk and the Elite of their championships and being suspended indefinitely alongside AEW producer Pat Buck, Christopher Daniels, Michael Nakazawa and Brandon Cutler.

Since then, Ace Steel was fired from All Elite Wrestling and The Elite returned to in-ring action and is now the AEW World Trios Champions by defeating Death Triangle’s Penta El Zero Miedo, Rey Fenix and PAC in a Best Of 7 series. CM Punk suffered a torn triceps and was required to undergo surgery, so he was going to miss time anyway even though the former AEW World Champion was not suspended, though AEW CEO Tony Khan has yet to provide an update on CM Punk’s status. It was also reported in the past that Punk and AEW were in talks about a potential contract buyout, with Punk being the one to push for it.

CM Punk took to his Instagram account and posted a video from Ice T’s Instagram about forgiveness for doing bad deeds and how you don’t have to hang out with certain people that have wronged you in order to forgive them. Dave Meltzer stated on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that a lot of damage was done in the backstage brawl that broke out between The Elite and CM Punk and they have a lot of mending of fences that needs to be done, but have yet to do. Meltzer also noted that CM Punk could potentially make his AEW return in two months, but a decision is needed to be made whether or not that will happen.

This is what Dave Meltzer said:

“A lot of damage [was] done. There’s a lot of mending of fences that needs to be done, and there’s been no mending of fences. At all. You know, it’s a big situation because Punk could be back in two months….then there’s a decision. That’s going to be a big story. How that goes down or doesn’t go down.”
