AEW President Tony Khan is reportedly looking to resolve backstage issues among talent, and he has plans to hold a meeting with Chris Jericho, FTR, and CM Punk. Dave Meltzer shared this news on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio.
While the exact nature of the issues is unclear, Meltzer mentioned that Punk’s rant at the All Out media scrum and his backstage brawl with The Elite are still causing problems. There is hope that the upcoming meeting will address these issues and help to resolve them.
The meeting is expected to involve others in addition to Jericho, FTR, and Punk, though details on who else will be present have not been revealed. The goal of the meeting is to clear the air and create a more positive atmosphere backstage.
Punk, a former WWE star, made his debut in AEW in August 2021, and his return to the ring has been highly anticipated by fans. AEW is tentatively planning for Punk to make his return on the June 21 edition of Dynamite.
The meeting between Khan, Jericho, FTR, Punk, and others is expected to take place in the near future. It remains to be seen what will come of the meeting, but fans are hopeful that it will help to create a better environment backstage and allow AEW to continue to grow and thrive.
As AEW continues to expand its roster and put on exciting shows, it’s important for the backstage atmosphere to be positive and supportive. With this meeting, Tony Khan is taking an important step toward ensuring that everyone involved in AEW feels valued and respected.
