AEW Stars CM Punk And Jack Perry Likely To Be Suspended From The Company, Further Investigation Required

10 months ago By Jhon Woug

The world of professional wrestling was shaken to its core during AEW All-In as reports surfaced of a fiery confrontation between two wrestling titans: CM Punk and Jack Perry. The incident sent shockwaves throughout the industry and has since become a hot topic of discussion among fans and insiders alike. Let’s delve into the details and the aftermath of this backstage altercation that has captured the attention of the wrestling community.

As initially reported by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, CM Punk and Jack Perry, also known as Jungle Boy, found themselves embroiled in a backstage confrontation during AEW All In. This unexpected clash of personalities has since led to various reports painting differing pictures of the incident, leaving fans wondering who was truly at fault.

Nick Hausman of Haus of Wrestling shed light on the altercation, revealing that the spark that ignited the feud was a pre-show conversation between Punk and Perry in the gorilla position. Allegedly, the conversation escalated quickly, leading Perry to challenge Punk with the words, “Do something about it. In response, Punk reportedly pushed Perry and placed him in a chokehold to defuse the situation. Following the altercation, Punk retreated to his dressing room, where he subsequently engaged with AEW security. When the suggestion arose that his departure might ease tensions, Punk voluntarily left the event.

However, the story took a twist even before the incident unfolded. Nick Hausman further reported that when CM Punk arrived at Heathrow Airport ahead of AEW All In, he encountered a lack of organisation on AEW’s end. With no one to meet him and no car service available, Punk was left to fend for himself. Even the contact number provided by AEW for the driver turned out to be invalid, leaving Punk to arrange his own transportation to the hotel.

In the wake of the backstage clash, Wade Keller of PWTorch shared insights from sources claiming that Punk was contemplating quitting due to his frustrations. Despite Punk’s desire for a “drama-free locker room,” controversies have continued to swirl around him since his return to the wrestling scene.

The root of the dispute between Punk and Perry appears to be a disagreement over the use of real glass at an angle. Reports suggest that Punk had advised Perry to opt for fake glass for safety reasons, but Perry reportedly felt slighted by Punk’s actions, which led to his comments about “real glass” during AEW All In.

While the wrestling world speculates about the altercation’s repercussions, Tony Khan, President of AEW, confirmed that an incident indeed occurred backstage during the event. Although details are scant, Khan assured fans that an investigation is underway to uncover the truth behind the confrontation.

As the dust began to settle, Bryan Alvarez of “Wrestling Observer Live” provided a potential insight into the aftermath. Alvarez revealed that there is a belief within AEW that both Punk and Perry are suspended pending the results of the investigation. This suspension would mean that neither of them would participate in AEW’s upcoming event, All Out. This development has sent shockwaves through the wrestling community, particularly considering the event’s significance and the storyline involving CM Punk.

The altercation’s impact on AEW All Out is particularly significant given the high stakes. With MJF holding the AEW World Heavyweight Championship and the event taking place in Punk’s hometown of Chicago, the stage was set for a potential clash between the two titleholders. The suspension, if confirmed, would derail these plans and alter the trajectory of the event.

The backstage altercation between CM Punk and Jack Perry not only grabbed headlines but also highlighted the ongoing challenges and dynamics within AEW’s locker room. Tony Khan, who has faced criticism for his leadership, seems poised to assert his authority and address backstage incidents head-on. This incident could mark a turning point in his approach to maintaining order and discipline within the organisation.

As fans await further developments and the outcome of the investigation, the wrestling world continues to be abuzz with speculation, opinions, and hopes for resolution. One thing is certain: this backstage altercation has added another layer of intrigue to the ongoing narrative of AEW, proving that the drama both inside and outside the ring is as captivating as ever. If AEW plays its cards well, the ever-ensuing drama could possibly draw more attention to the product in general.
