CM Punk may have been injured in the AEW All Out fight, Dave Meltzer reported on WOR. It’s being speculated that Punk possibly tore his pec or injured something having to do with his bicep/shoulder in the backstage altercation.
CM Punk recently won the AEW World Championship once again at AEW All Out pay-per-view. Punk pinned Moxley with his third GTS of the match. It has come to light that he was reportedly involved in an altercation following the conclusion of the show. 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.
WWE stars reportedly commented on CM Punk
Sean Sapp reported from behind Fightful’s paywall that several WWE talent reached out to the outlet to give their comments. Those people from WWE suggested that Punk was hard to work with when he was in Vince McMahon’s former company as well.
There were numerous WWE talent that reached out to Fightful to get the notes of what all went down, as well as details behind the skirmish at AEW All Out. A top WWE star said that they believe that the CM Punk that they knew years ago is being highlighted.
Another WWE talent said that if it was a work, it was one of the most elaborate works they’ve ever seen. A third talent said much of the same — “If this Punk press scrum thing is a work.. bravo.” Both had contacted Fightful before Raw and said that they learned individually it wasn’t a work, and expressed surprise that it even happened. There was confusion from both of those as to why Tony Khan would not comment in the follow up about Punk bashing the EVPs and not providing clarity regarding the people who launched the company with him.Another longtime main eventer told us that they considered Punk’s actions unprofessional, and don’t believe he’s the company man or leader that he made himself out to be. That same person would call Punk “selfish and arrogant.” This sentiment was echoed by several we spoke to, including some talent that worked on set with Punk at FOX.
