CM Punk managed to capture the AEW World Championship once again at last night’s 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.
CM Punk reportedly got involved in a tiff
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.
“By the time the wee hours of the morning happened, there were unconfirmed rumors that CM Punk and Ace Steele and members of the Elite were involved in some sort of confrontation. We’ve heard varying accounts of how “involved” it was. By the end of the press conference, several talent and media had learned that the incident had happened.”
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.” Steve Carrier is reporting that Punk took the first swing, likely at Omega, The Bucks, and Page.
CM Punk's blowup after All Out caused a huge ordeal. We can confirm the physical altercation as was previously reported. Also, we were told Punk took the first swing.
Punk made it very clear that you're either for him, or "he wants you gone." The locker room is 100% divided now.
