CM Punk Gives Bizarre Response To AEW All In Footage

CM Punk

Tony Khan made the decision to show the footage from AEW All In that showed CM Punk’s physical confrontation with Jack Perry.

CM Punk was fired by AEW following AEW All In after he became embroiled in a backstage fight with Jack Perry. That allowed Punk to shock the world when he returned to WWE a few short weeks later in his hometown of Chicago at the Survivor Series.

That return has not panned out as he would have hoped as CM Punk suffered a serious injury that kept him on the sidelines at WrestleMania 40. He still made his presence felt, talking all over Drew McIntyre’s special pipe band entrance before attacking McIntyre with a cheap shot that allowed Damian Priest to cash in his Money In The Bank to defeat McIntyre for the World Heavyweight Championship.

CM Punk attempted to hog the headlines during the week of WrestleMania by finally giving his side of the story of his time in AEW. CM Punk claimed he had “choked someone a little bit.” Tony Khan decided to let the world decide as AEW announced that The Young Bucks would show the backstage footage from All In on Dynamite.

CM Punk “Mission Accomplished” Message After AEW Footage Shown

On Dynamite in Charleston, West Virginia that is exactly what happened. Matthew and Nicholas Jackson presented the footage without saying Punk’s name as they used it to build their AEW Tag Team Title match with Punk’s friends FTR at Dynasty.

The footage showed Punk confronting Perry as they spoke for a few moments. Punk was clearly the aggressor as he threw a strike at Perry before trying to lock him in a front face lock. Samoa Joe – Punk’s opponent at All In – pulled Punk off Perry before he was led away.

Taking to Instagram stories, Punk shared the infamous image of former US President George W. Bush standing in front of a giant ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner.

Since the altercation Jack Perry has not been seen in AEW but reappeared in New Japan Pro Wrestling in early 2024. Perry will compete in Punk’s home city of Chicago at Windy City Riot on April 12th where he is sure to receive a very interesting reaction.
