AEW Abandoned Another Shot At CM Punk On Dynamite

CM Punk As Their:

AEW decided against multiple digs at CM Punk.

On the April 10th episode of Dynamite, AEW followed through on its promise and aired footage of the backstage altercation between CM Punk and Jack Perry at All In.

In storyline, The Young Bucks said the incident had left them unprepared for their match at Wembley against FTR — who are friends with Punk. The pair said Perry had been made a scapegoat, and that the incident almost derailed the biggest show in AEW history.

According to a new report, AEW almost took a second shot at CM Punk on the show but ultimately decided against it.

Away from the altercation, Will Ospreay reacted to a dig at AEW talent from Triple H during WrestleMania weekend. After The Game said some didn’t want to “grind” to be with WWE, Ospreay said Triple H was only in the position he is because he’d been “grinding” on the boss’ daughter.

While it had initially been reported that Ospreay was fed the line, a further report from Fightful Select notes that Ospreay was more than happy with the promo and worked with creative to put it together.

Interestingly, there were discussions around Ospreay taking a shot at Punk, but the company ultimately decided against it. While doing media over WrestleMania weekend, Punk made a reference to the British star getting a tattoo to commemorate the attendance for All In.

AEW Figures “Frustrated” By CM Punk Footage

After the footage of CM Punk and Jack Perry aired on Dynamite, it was reported that several people with AEW were frustrated with how it all went down.

Although the decision to air the clip was in response to criticism from Punk, Dave Meltzer reported that most were happy to look past his comments and move on. However, by showing the footage, the incident has now been made a massive deal once again.
