More details have emerged from the melee backstage at All Out with CM Punk allegedly throwing punches at Matt Jackson and Ace Steel reportedly biting Kenny Omega.
The drama from AEW All Out was not confined to pay-per-view with new AEW World Champion CM Punk blasting Hangman Adam Page, Colt Cabana, MJF, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks during a tense post-show media scrum.
It was reported that after Punk left the scrum that an “altercation” took place with other reports suggesting that the company EVPs – Omega and The Bucks – Punk mentioned in his rant were “threatening to walk” over his comments.
Fightful Select has now reported more worrying information as to what went down after CM Punk left the media scrum. Punk is alleged to have begun the physicality by swinging punches at Matt Jackson. The report adds that Punk’s trainer and AEW producer Ace Steel was involved. Nick Jackson was said to be either “rocked” or knocked out due to Steel throwing a chair.
More bizarrely, Ace Steel is alleged to have “tussled” with Kenny Omega with Steel apparently biting the former AEW World Champion as well as pulling his hair.
One AEW coach is quoted as being “very torn up” over the situation which the report notes could have legal ramifications.
It should also be noted that Eddie Kingston was recently suspended by AEW for two weeks over a ‘pie-face’ incident with Sammy Guevara. What happens next for those involved including a producer, three executive vice presidents and an AEW World Champion remains to be seen.
