During All In, Punk was reportedly involved in an altercation with Jack Perry. The incident stemmed from Punk allegedly leaking news that he had prevented Perry from using real glass in a spot on Collision.
Perry made reference to the reports live in Wembley during his match with Hook, telling the camera that the windscreen on the car they were fighting on was “real glass, cry me a river”, before the two went crashing through it.
When Perry got to the back, he approached Punk – who was preparing for his own match with Samoa Joe – and the two got into a physical confrontation. There are varying reports on what exactly happened, but it ended with the belief that both Punk and Perry have been suspended while an investigation takes place into the incident.
However, that’s news to Punk. Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful has now revealed that the Second City Saint has not been informed of a suspension by AEW. There is no update on Perry’s status.
“We’re told that as of now, CM Punk has not been informed of a suspension by AEW.
“No word on Jack Perry.”

CM Punk suspension would change All Out creative plans
If Punk has been suspended, it will reportedly have ramifications for All Out, which is being held in his hometown of Chicago on September 3rd.
Unsurprisingly, according to Fightful Select it was planned for Punk to perform in the city, although no match has been announced for him as yet. If he is no longer going to be part of the show, Tony Khan will need to hastily rewrite his plans for the event.
