Prior to tonight’s Grand Slam TV tapings for AEW Dynamite and Rampage, another talent meeting was held backstage.
According to a report from Fightful, the meeting was held earlier this afternoon. As of this writing, there is no word on who spoke but it was described as a pep talk of sorts and was said to have been “very positive.” Many in the company have reacted favorably to the meetings that have been taking place since the All Out 2022 pay-per-view event.
One longtime talent said the backstage atmosphere in the company has been a lot more relaxed since the lead-up to All Out and the drama that followed the pay-per-view event. Another veteran talent said the locker room at the last three tapings has been the best it’s been in awhile. One source referred to it as “addition by subtraction,” but wasn’t specific about who they were talking about.
The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, CM Punk, and Ace Steel have yet to return to the company. Everyone else who witnessed the fight or tried to break it up are no longer suspended.
