your company’s biggest star and your EVPs fist fought backstage. it has to be significant. my question is it JUST Tony above the EVPs or is it a team of people above them? because TK doesn’t strike me as being able to navigate this situation by himself. he better hope the EVPs recuse themselves to accept consequences.

[Steven Muehlhausen (DAZN)] "Sources: There was an altercation between CM Punk and The Young Bucks early Monday. The Bucks confronted Punk about his comments at the scrum. It did get physical with Punk throwing punches at least one member of The Bucks. A number intervened to separate everyone".

According to Fightful, Young Bucks & Kenny Omega were extremely pissed off about Punk’s comments during All Out Media Scrum, and one talent that Fightful heard from claimed that the EVPs were threatening to leave the company.
Bryan Alvarez also seeming confirmed that there was an physical altercation backstage:
"Apparently there was an altercation after Punk left the press conference.
He was obviously very mad, and we had multiple, multiple sources state that there was an altercation.
I wasn’t there, I don’t know everything that happened, but many people said that there was an altercation with Punk and the Young Bucks.
I don’t know who else was there, but it happened, and everybody knew about it, and a security guard did in fact go running out of the press conference."

Found on reddit - starting to get the 'this is a work vibe", perhaps with a few selected dirt sheers involved


SRS Speculation on Backstage Fight

SRS reported on the podcast that he heard (not that he believed it to be true or untrue at this point) that the fight included Kenny, at least one Jackson with Ace Steel and Punk, Nick Jackson got rocked/knocked out, Ace Steel bite Kenny and that there was a chair thrown.

For the MANY of you who have written us asking about what happened backstage at the AEW All Out PPV, I haven't been ignoring you but was out all day.  Based on what we have heard from those in the company today, here is what we can ascertaine:

*After Punk finished venting his heart out at the AEW All Out Media Scrum, he returned to his locker room, where there was an altercation.

*Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks went to Punk's locker room and confronted him about his comments during the scrum.

*There was a physical altercation with Punk and Matt and Nick Jackson

*No one sharing stories is quite sure who threw the first punch.

*Kenny Omega was there but did not get into a physical altercation with Punk.  

*Ace Steel arrived and did get involved as his wife was in the vicinity of the incident, possibly even inside Punk's locker room as she was watching over Punk's dog Larry.  Steel was said to have gotten physically involved.

*A number of AEW staff and security hit the scene to break up the fracas and separate the Punk side from the Elite side.

*Once the sides were separated, they continued to argue for some time before The Bucks and Omega exited the area of Punk's locker room.  There was a lot of yelling from each side.

*Tony Khan was not present at the incident at any point as he was still on stage for the media scrum.

*At least one of the Bucks late last night was said to be sporting a black eye.

*We have heard from a number of people in the company backing one side and blaming the other.  Some were backing Omega and The Bucks, given Punk's comments, feeling Punk's verbal statements led to the incident and he was the guilty party.  Others were backing Punk and questioning why EVPs stormed into his locker room, placing Punk in a situation where he would be outnumbered and that their decision to go there was partly responsible.

*Others are questioning how things will go down at TV this Wednesday given the situation involved the company's new champion, three EVPS and a Producer, all of whom are in positions of being leaders behind the scenes.

*The Bucks and Omega left Chicago earlier today.

*AEW is being very tight-lipped about the situation but the belief among those we've spoken with is the company is likely trying to determine where blame should be placed and what their course of action is going forward.

*It should be noted that over the course of the day, some of the stories around the incident have gotten more and more fantastical (as they were passed and on) and involved other names.  In regard to FTR (who are close with Punk) and Hangman Page (close with the Elite, obviously), they were not present as they had all exited the NOW Arena after the PPV had concluded as they were not needed for the Media Scrum.  They were not involved.

*There were some who had sympathy for MJF, feeling the situation overshadowed his return angle that closed the PPV and that the entire scenario has now deflected the attention from the PPV itsel

Don’t blame anyone who’s a diehard AEW fan for completely shitting on the company is ran rn. And for the haters, can’t blame them at all for the criticism. 

The shows & PPV’s are still all enjoyable, but backstage is just a complete *censored*ing mess. They’re in absolute shambles rn and TK is a spineless coward. 

This needs to end with Punk & Steele being fired. Don’t even care about how much of a fan I am of him. Wrong is wrong. Dude is a cancer to wrestling and he’ll be the death of this company if they keep him.

Guest Fight Me.

Lol didn't notice he just started rambling on about Cabana without even being asked. AEW's scrum missed the first minute or so, so most thought someone had asked him first and set him off.
