The Young Bucks Had Terms For Potential Meeting With CM Punk

CM Punk The Young Bucks AEW

The Young Bucks were willing to meet with CM Punk if certain conditions were met.

Following the infamous All Out 2022 incident, Punk and The Elite [The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega] were kept apart except for pay-per-view events. Reports would state that Punk was willing to sit down with The Elite to try and come to some sort of agreement, but this never took place as The Bucks and Omega would not agree to a meeting. The reason why this was the case may have now been revealed.

As reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a source close to Matt and Nick Jackson stated that they were willing to meet with Punk if six months passed by without an incident involving the former AEW World Champion. However, because “the clock on that time frame kept getting reset each week back to zero” The Young Bucks felt it wasn’t the best time.

Incidents cited in the Newsletter that caused concerns include Ryan Nemeth and Christopher Daniels being refused entry into Collision tapings and a legal letter issued to The Elite members that informed them that they had violated the terms of an agreement to not talk negatively about Punk. The letter stated that a skit on BTE appeared to take shots at Punk even though his name was not mentioned directly. It is also stated that all of the terms and issues were events that occurred before All In, which was the final Punk incident that ultimately led to his firing from All Elite Wrestling.

The Young Bucks Make AEW Collision Debut

Following the announcement that Punk had been let go from the company, The Jackson Brothers appeared on Collision just hours later. Collision was not only broadcast live in Punk’s hometown of Chicago but was known as Punk’s show as the former World Champion was placed front and centre following the announcement of the creation of the Saturday night show. Fan footage after the event showed the former Tag Team Champions take a victory lap in the arena, much to the hatred of the Chicago crowd.
