After leaving for backstage, The former UFC star had a torrid exchange with the EVPs, eventually becoming a scuffle. According to reports, The Straight-Edge superstar was the first to throw a punch. Alongside Punk, his real-life friend, Ace Steel too participated in the exchange and allegedly took out Nick Jackson and bit Omega. The duo’s actions have attracted heat from wrestling fans and led to the speculations that AEW may have to fire the Second City Saint.
AEW’s head honcho Tony Khan is under a lot of pressure but it is highly unlikely for him to fire Punk as he is arguably the number one draw in AEW. According to reports, Ace Steel and CM Punk now await the impending consequences. In addition to that Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Chris Daniels, Micheal Nakazawa, and Brandon Cutler will also be either suspended or fired.
