At Least 8 Major AEW Stars Suspended
Seven AEW talents are reported to now be serving suspensions.
Following previous reports that certain AEW talents were expected to be suspended due to the craziness that occurred following All Out this past Sunday, there's now an update on exactly which names are to serve suspensions.
As per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Pat Buck, Christopher Daniels, Brandon Cutler and Michael Nakazawa have been "officially suspended" by All Elite Wrestling. It's currently not known how long these suspensions are for.
In terms of CM Punk and Ace Steel, Steel has been taken off the road for now, and Punk's future "should be clear soon".
Everyone involved in the brawl is now officially suspended, Bucks, Omega, plus Pat Buck, Christopher Daniels, Brandon Cutler and Michael Nakazawa. Ace Steel was also taken off and Punk's situation should be clear soon. It's all pending the completion of the investigation.— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) September 7, 2022
For those who somehow missed it, the post-All Out media scrum saw CM Punk brutally berate 'Hangman' Adam Page, the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Colt Cabana while Tony Khan sat and awkwardly watched.
Following that, an altercation took place backstage involving Punk, Steel, the Bucks and Omega. The specifics seem to be that Matt and Nick Jackson entered Punk's locker room, Matt was punched by the Straight-Edge Superstar, and Steel threw a chair at Nick before pulling the hair of Omega and biting him.
There are various reports on how this all came about, with one story being that the Young Bucks "kicked down" CM Punk's locker room door, then Matt Jackson threw a punch at the Second City Saint that missed - which then caused the above events to play out.
As for Punk, the belief is that there will be a solid update on his situation by the end of the day, with many speculating that his time with AEW is done.
