Ace Steel Gone From AEW

aew all out Ace Steel CM Punk

A new report has indicated that suspended AEW producer Ace Steel has been released by the company following the backstage fight at All Out.

All Out should have been a big occasion for CM Punk as he returned to pay-per-view following his foot injury and recaptured the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley. However, the celebrations quickly turned sour as Punk took his opportunity at the post-show press conference to settle a few scores.

CM Punk took aim at The Young Bucks, Hangman Adam Page, MJF, and his former friend Colt Cabana with explosive remarks. This led to him being confronted backstage in his locker room by The Bucks where a fight broke out. Several stars and backstage personnel were suspended but now Punk, his friend and AEW producer Ace Steel, The Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega are the only ones that are believed to still be under suspension for what happened. But now it looks like one of those men is no more in AEW.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio Dave Meltzer noted that the newest information he had on the current state of affairs was that Steel was no longer with the company:

“He was officially released yesterday. So I guess that is the first bit of news out of that whole situation in weeks. But yes, he was was released. There’s a lot of other stuff going on, but it’s just stuff going on, I mean there’s nothing else really to it. But he was released yesterday. “
