Despite being suspended, CM Punk is front and center of advertising for an upcoming episode of AEW Collision.
The events behind the scenes at AEW All In were as chaotic as the on-screen action, with CM Punk getting into an altercation with Jack Perry. The skirmish came after Perry made comments directed toward Punk during his Zero Hour match against HOOK, and while reports vary on who instigated the fight backstage, the altercation turned physical.
Perry was sent home from the arena while Punk went on to defeat Samoa Joe in the opening bout of the main show. Punk reportedly met with security after his bout and left Wembley Stadium of his own accord as he believed it would be better for everyone involved.
AEW President Tony Khan alluded to the incident during a post-show media scrum and said that an investigation was being launched. It was later reported that both men have been suspended as the company awaits the results of that investigation, placing them in doubt for All Out on September 3rd.
It was later reported that Punk also got into a heated confrontation with Tony Khan at the event, and that direct communication between Khan and Punk since then has been virtually non-existent, making an All Out appearance even less likely.
CM Punk Advertised For October 28th & November 4th AEW Collision Episodes

In a post on AEW’s official Instagram page, a graphic announced that the company will be making its debut in Wichita, KS on November 4th. It should be noted that the graphic containing Punk’s image is advertising a show in Uncasville, CT the previous week on October 28th, while the post’s text reveals the November 4th location.
