AEW Paid Ace Steel Back Pay As A Concession To CM Punk



Following the All Out 2022 brawl with The Elite last year, Ace Steel and CM Punk have been linked regarding Punk’s return to AEW, as the two remain close friends.

Before Punk’s AEW comeback for the debut episode of Collision on June 17th, Punk and AEW were involved in a misunderstanding surrounding bringing back Steel, resulting in Punk being removed from the AEW Collision announcement.

Steel was released after the incident and quietly hired back before Punk returned. All parties involved eventually reached an agreement. Steel is working remotely rather than at Collision shows to avoid problems with talent.

In the most recent issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer confirmed reports that Punk expressed his belief that Christopher Daniels, AEW’s Head of Talent Relations, should not be allowed backstage at Collision TV tapings if Ace Steel wasn’t allowed to be there.

Daniels was among those who stepped in to stop the backstage brawl at All Out 2022 and was suspended among everyone else involved.

It was noted that Steel was hired back “with back pay from the time he was let go, as a concession to Punk when he agreed to come back, but then told he could only work remotely and not work backstage.”
