CM Punk backstage altercation could jeopardize Ace Steel’s job
During the post-AEW All Out media scrum, CM Punk blasted Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. Punk utterly buried Page and Cabana in particular while blaming the Bucks and Omega for being incompetent EVPs. Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez mentioned during Wrestling Observer Radio that they saw a police officer run by, and they figured a fight broke out with someone else. It was later revealed that Ace Steel was also involved in the “melee.” Ace Steel, was allegedly involved as he reportedly threw a chair that hit Nick Jackson in the eye.
Steel also reportedly bit Kenny Omega and pulled the hair of the former World Champion. AEW are yet to publicly address the incident. It is believed that there is a process underway to determine who is to blame. Fightful is reporting that Ace Steel is not expected to stay with the company following his involvement in the fight.
Steel has been working as a producer for AEW and played an on-screen role over recent weeks.
