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.
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 the question still remains should he be kept around in AEW despite his star power after the stunt he pulled following AEW’s All Out.
Several Hall of Famers, legends and fellow talents believe what the former AEW World Champion did was not only create a media circus and humiliate AEW President and CEO Tony Khan, but he embarrassed Khan and made the AEW CEO look like a complete fool. Punk also trashed All Elite Wrestling and treated the promotion in such a way that could affect them in the long run and that is something that there is no coming back from and completely unforgivable.
CM Punk is currently out of in-ring action for 6-8 months due to an injury he suffered at the All Out PPV Event, but what he did is completely out of line and there is no place for that in pro wrestling, so once he is healed Tony Khan should not bring him back as he left a bad name in AEW and he could do something similar to that if he returns that could ultimately be the downfall of AEW.
