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, some of which have already made their returns.
Former AEW World Champion CM Punk is one of the most outspoken and controversial personalities in all of pro wrestling, but he is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars in all of pro wrestling as well. The former AEW and WWE World Champion is most notably known for his 434-day reign as WWE Champion and the pipebomb promo he cut during his WWE days, but it has been discussed that Punk isn’t expected to make a return to AEW following the events that transpired at the post-AEW All Out media scrum. It was also reported that a contract buyout will most likely be taking place between CM Punk and AEW and that the former AEW World Champion could possibly be returning to the WWE, with a non-compete clause in place.
Cage Fury Fighting Championship recently held an event, which aired on UFC Fight Pass and with former AEW and WWE World Champion CM Punk not only being a huge star in the world of professional wrestling, but in the world of sports and entertainment as well, he made his first public appearance on the show by calling the action. At the start of the show, Punk made a joke about not being there to get into a fight, which is seemingly a reference to the massive brawl that broke out during the post-AEW All Out media scrum.
The third party investigation into what happened during last September’s post-AEW All Out media scrum has officially ended, but Punk’s status with All Elite Wrestling hasn’t been addressed yet and no one from CM Punk’s camp has commented publicly on the brawl or the investigation, though it seems that CM Punk’s days in All Elite Wrestling have come to an end. The Elite, on the other hand, could be making their returns soon, possibly even at Full Gear as the company has been airing a number of their video vignettes, teasing their returns.
