The Elite “Threaten To Walk” Over CM Punk’s Comments

The Elite Kenny Omega The Young Bucks

The trio known as The Elite – Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks – have reportedly threatened to walk away from AEW over comments made by CM Punk.

All Out should have been a night of celebration for The Elite as they picked up the victory over The Dark Order and Hangman Adam Page to become the first-ever AEW Trios Champions – but what happened after the show may have soured the night for Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks.

At the post-show media scrum, CM Punk took aim at the men who also hold the role of Executive Vice President in the company, alleging they had something to do with rumours surrounding Colt Cabana’s diminished role in AEW being down to Punk’s presence in the company.

Fightful Select reported after the fact that CM Punk had generated a lot of heat for himself within the company for his comments with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks said to be “extremely p*ssed off.” An unnamed source also indicated that the trio had been “threatening to walk” out of AEW due to Punk’s comments.

Following Punk’s exit from the media scrum, a security guard was seen running from the room with Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer describing the scene as “a melee.”
