CM Punk will not return to AEW after recent controversy
We all saw what followed CM Punk’s successful AEW Title win against Jon Moxley at All Out earlier this month. After the event, all hell cut lose during the media scrum when he started making derogatory comments on his former friend Colt Cabana and other wrestlers.
His negative comments led to a legit physical altercation backstage between The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Ace Steel as repercussions saw all of them getting suspended from AEW indefinitely. Punk also underwent surgery after he sustained an injury during his match which will keep him away from the ring for atleast 8 months.
Now, Wade Keller of PW Torch is reporting that all signs are pointing towards the AEW departure of CM Punk and he might never actually wrestle for them again. Also, it is now quite possible that he’ll bit out his contract from the promotion.
