We now have more details on the backstage altercation that took place between CM Punk, Ace Steel, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks following CM Punk’s post-AEW All Out media scrum.
During the scrum, the AEW World Champion went off on The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. While he never mentioned them by name, he referenced the EVPs of the company, which include the Bucks and Omega.
According to multiple sources, CM Punk walked out of the media scrum where an irate Young Bucks and Kenny Omega were waiting for him. CM Punk allegedly started things and swung his fists at Matt Jackson.
CM Punk’s trainer, friend, and AEW producer Ace Steel got involved. One source said he threw a chair that hit Nick Jackson in the face, causing a black eye. Additionally, it was noted that Steel bit Omega and grabbed his hair.
CM Punk, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and AEW have not commented publicly about the alleged incident. One source said this is due to potential legal issues.
For those who didn’t hear CM Punk’s comments at the media scrum, he said,
“Now, it’s 2022. I haven’t been friends with this guy [Colt Cabana] since at least 2014, late 2013. The fact that I have to sit up here because we have irresponsible people who call themselves EVPs and couldn’t f*cking manage a TARGET and they spread lies and bullsh*t and put into the media that I got somebody fired when I have f*ck all to do with him, want nothing to do with him, do not care where he works, where he doesn’t work, where he eats, where he sleeps. And the fact that I have to get up here and do this in 2022 is f*cking embarrassing. And if y’all are at fault, f*ck you. If you’re not, I apologize.
What did I ever do in this world to deserve an empty-headed f*cking dumb f*ck like Hangman Adam Page to go out on national television and f*cking go into business for himself? For what? What did I do? What did I ever do? Didn’t do a goddamn thing.”
While AEW Tag Team Champions Swerve In Our Glory were speaking at the scrum, a security member was seen running backstage at the time of the incident. You can check out a video of that below:
