AEW Star Fires Shots At Jack Perry After CM Punk Fired By The Company

AEW Star Fires Shots At Jack Perry After CM Punk Fired By The Company AEW

An AEW star has fired shots at Jack Perry just moments after the company announced that CM Punk had been fired.

Of course, the majority of the news that came out prior to Punk’s firing was about his backstage altercation at All In with Jack Perry.

AEW today announced the following:

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has terminated the wrestler and employment agreements between Phillip Brooks (CM Punk) and AEW with cause, effective immediately.

The termination was confirmed today by Tony Khan, CEO General Manager and Head of Creative of AEW.

The termination follows a weeklong internal investigation of an incident occurring back stage at AEW – All In in London on Sunday, August 27.

Following the investigation, the AEW Discipline Committee met and later convened with outside legal counsel before making a unanimous decision to Khan that CM Punk be terminated with cause.

Tony Khan was quoted as saying:

“Phil played an important role within AEW and I thank him for his contributions.

“The termination of his AEW contracts with cause is ultimately my decision, and mine alone.

“Of course, I wish I didn’t have to share this news, which may come as a disappointment to many of our fans.

“Nevertheless, I am making the decision in the best interests of the many amazing people who make AEW possible every week – our talent, staff, venue operators and many others whose efforts are unsung but essential to bringing our fans great shows on television at at arenas and stadiums throughout the world.”

Not even an hour after the announcement – and obviously we can’t say with absolute 100% certainty that it was posted in relation to the Punk news – Rush posted the below images on Twitter.

The images are taken from Rush’s match with Perry back in May, which came under a lot of scrutiny because of how dominant Rush was during the match. One of them is a fan sign saying “Rush > Jungle Boy”.

Punk had outright called Rush a “Collider” a few weeks ago so was evidently a big fan of him and was on good enough terms with him to put him over in that sense and have him on Collision.

We’ll keep you posted with any further updates on Punk’s firing.
