Sports Illustrated reports that Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Pat Buck, Christopher Daniels (head of talent relations), Michael Nakazawa, and Brandon Cutler have been suspended. Further, CM Punk & Ace Steel will either be suspended “or gone” by the end of today. All of this stems from CM Punk’s comments at the AEW press conference, and then the backstage fight that resulted from it.
CM Punk made a lot of comments about Colt Cabana, Adam Page, and the EVPs. He said they couldn’t manage a target. Omega and The Bucks supposedly busted down CM Punk’s locker room door and confronted him. The resulting fight broke out which included Ace Steel biting Kenny Omega.
If CM Punk quits or gets fired, there is an important question. What happens with the AEW world title? MJF is set to be the number 1 contender obviously. Hypothetically, it could be MJF versus Moxley or MJF versus a tournament winner. We’ll find out soon enough I’m sure.
None of the people involved in this fight will be on Dynamite tonight, as announced by AEW.
