Report: ‘Uncooperative’ Party Threatening Legal Action Delaying AEW CM Punk/EVPs Investigation

Report: ‘Uncooperative’ Party Threatening Legal Action Delaying AEW CM Punk/EVPs Investigation AEW

More information has emerged regarding the backstage incident between CM Punk and the AEW EVPs after AEW All Out 2022.

On September 4, CM Punk was allegedly involved in a fight with Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks and his former tag team partner Ace Steel, after giving an interview during the post-show media scrum in which he insulted several key members of the company.

All those involved in the brawl were suspended for the company for an indefinite amount of time. None of those directly involved in the fight have appeared on television since the incident.

According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a resolution to the incident may still take time due to the legal ramifications of the situation:

“We’ve been hearing a decent amount about it the past week, largely that threatened legal action has stalled everything and nobody has been let go yet including Ace Steel.

“There is no time frame for anyone to return at this point.”

On the Wrestling Observer forum, Meltzer also stated:

“One person has threatened legal action and been uncooperative.”

It isn’t clear at this time which party is being “uncooperative” and threatening legal action.

Other AEW personnel such as Christopher Daniels, Pat Buck, Brandon Cutler and Michael Nakazawa were also suspended, but were ultimately cleared of any wrongdoing.
