CM Punk “Throwing Punches” Following Media Scrum

CM Punk

A new update on the chaos following the media scrum after All Out says that CM Punk threw punches in The Young Bucks’ direction following his explosive comments.

CM Punk caused a storm following a banner night for him at All Out where he became a two-time AEW World Champion when he defeated Jon Moxley in the night’s main event. The real headlines were made after the show when the Chicago native let rip at the post-show media scrum.

Punk took aim at Hangman Adam Page, making clear that things were not fine between himself and the man he beat for the AEW World Title back at Double Or Nothing. He also laid bare the situation surrounding his former friend Colt Cabana’s role in AEW making clear that he had nothing to do with Cabana’s diminished AEW role since he joined All Elite Wrestling in August 2021.

As part of that tirade, Punk took aim at the AEW EVPs – The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega – accusing them of leaking information and adding that the trio “couldn’t manage a Target.”

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer described the scene after CM Punk left the media scrum as “a melee” and now Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN has taken to social media to claim sources told him that Punk threw punches at The Bucks:

“Sources: There was an altercation between CM Punk and The Young Bucks early Monday. The Bucks confronted Punk about his comments at the scrum. It did get physical with Punk throwing punches at least one member of The Bucks. A number intervened to separate everyone. More 2 come”

Reports also suggest that CM Punk has generated a lot of heat for himself in AEW with his candid remarks with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks “threatening to walk” over the situation.
