A new report has shed some light on the current state of play between CM Punk and The Young Bucks following their highly-publicised backstage brawl.
Back at All Out 2022, what should have been a great night for CM Punk and The Elite as they captured championship gold turned into a nightmare after the show was over.
Punk went on a tirade at the post-show media scrum which led to The Young Bucks allegedly confronting him backstage, leading to a fight. All parties were suspended – including Kenny Omega – pending an internal investigation with The Young Bucks and Omega since returning while Punk is still out with an injury suffered in his All Out match and his future looking increasingly uncertain.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the relationship between all sides has not even begun to be repaired:
“A lot of damage done, there’s a lot of mending of fences that needs to be done, and there’s been no mending of fences. At all.
“It’s a big situation, because Punk could be back in two months, then there’s a decision. That’s gonna be a big story, how that goes down, or doesn’t go down.”
Former AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes recently discussed the All Out brawl and said the whole situation left him feeling “bummed out.”
