Several AEW Wrestlers Suspended For Backstage Altercation After All Out

Several AEW Wrestlers Suspended For Backstage Altercation After All Out

The AEW locker room has been divided into two teams following CM Punk’s comment on The Young Bucks during the All Out post-show media scrum. Yesterday, Steve Muehlhausen of DAZN reported that Punk and Young Buck had a backstage fight regarding Punk’s comment in the press conference.

Fightful Select reported that CM Punk started the whole incident by throwing punches at Matt Jackson.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer reported that CM Punk’s trainer Ace Steel who worked as a producer in AEW also involved in the backstage fight. Meltzer noted that Steel threw a chair at Nick Jackson and it hit his eye. Meltzer added that Steel grabbed Kenny Omega’s hair and bit him.

On Wrestling Observer Radio Dave Meltzer discussed AEW backstage fight. He said that the persons involved in the incident are not allowed to talk about anything due to “pending legal issues.”

Nobody’s allowed to talk or wants to talk because, well, they’re not allowed to talk because there’s pending legal issues based on what happened. It is not a work at all, and you don’t have legal issues, and police officers run in there…it’s not a work. That’s for sure.

There’s legal people involved. There’s a lot of legal situations involved, and it can be very messy. I think that’s one of the reasons why no one in AEW is allowed to talk about it and from a company standpoint, no one is talking, but they’re gonna have to at some point address it.

Brian Last of The Wrestling News reported that the people who were in the locker room during CM Punk and Elite melee have been suspended.

The Wrestling News has learned that several AEW personnel who were in the room for the CM Punk / Elite altercation have been suspended.

The Wrestling News has learned that Ace Steel was not in the room when the CM Punk / Elite altercation started.

The Wrestling News has learned that Chris Jericho eventually attempted to calm all parties down, well after the initial altercation in CM Punk's locker room.

The Wrestling News has learned that CM Punk and Kenny Omega engaged in talks later in the night after the physical altercation, but the conversations are not believed to have been fruitful.

As of this writing, AEW has not publicly addressed the situation.

We will update you when we receive more details. Stay tuned with The Spotlight.
