Report: CM Punk AEW Backstage Issues ‘Not Settled At All’ Yet AEW

With news being widely reported that CM Punk is set to return to AEW, details of the state of the backstage issues have been revealed.

It has recently been reported that AEW are preparing for Punk’s return, with June 21 being seen as the date as AEW returns to Chicago.

Dave Meltzer has now provided further details of feelings backstage in AEW, writing in the current Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

“As reported here the past two weeks, a Punk return is largely expected. It’s a tenuous situation because the dressing room issues involving him have not been settled at all at press time.

“The working idea was that the Saturday show would star Punk and that they would split crews to a large degree.

“History does show that the splitting crews never lasts long, but in this case the idea is to ease the dressing room problems in the sense those who have not made up would be kept on different crews and wouldn’t have to interact with each other.

“Still, there are going to be instances, such as PPV shows or Wembley Stadium and some television shows where it has to be all hands on deck.”

It had previously been reported that there was a meeting planned between Chris Jericho and Punk in order “to see if the two working together is a possibility”.
