CM Punk “Fights” Young Bucks, Kenny Omega Bitten
More details have emerged from the melee backstage at All Out with CM Punk allegedly throwing punches at Matt Jackson and Ace Steel reportedly biting Kenny Omega.
The drama from AEW All Out was not confined to pay-per-view with new AEW World Champion CM Punk blasting Hangman Adam Page, Colt Cabana, MJF, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks during a tense post-show media scrum.
It was reported that after Punk left the scrum that an “altercation” took place with other reports suggesting that the company EVPs – Omega and The Bucks – Punk mentioned in his rant were “threatening to walk” over his comments.
Fightful Select has now reported more worrying information as to what went down after CM Punk left the media scrum. Punk is alleged to have begun the physicality by swinging punches at Matt Jackson. The report adds that Punk’s trainer and AEW producer Ace Steel was involved. Nick Jackson was said to be either “rocked” or knocked out due to Steel throwing a chair.
More bizarrely, Ace Steel is alleged to have “tussled” with Kenny Omega with Steel apparently biting the former AEW World Champion as well as pulling his hair.
One AEW coach is quoted as being “very torn up” over the situation which the report notes could have legal ramifications.
There was additional confirmation of the story from the PWInsider noting that Omega and The Young Bucks were the ones that confronted Punk in his dressing room. After the sides were separated, they continued to argue leading to The Young Bucks and Omega exiting the area of Punk’s locker room. That report also noted that “one of the Bucks” returned to the hotel late last night with a black eye.
AEW President Tony Khan was not present for any of the fighting incidents because he was still talking to the media on the stage.
It should also be noted that Eddie Kingston was recently suspended by AEW for two weeks over a ‘pie-face’ incident with Sammy Guevara. What happens next for those involved including a producer, three executive vice presidents and an AEW World Champion remains to be seen.
