Update On CM Punk’s AEW All Out Status, Communication With Tony Khan

CM Punk

A new report reveals whether or not CM Punk should be expected at AEW All Out in Chicago, IL.

The events behind the scenes at AEW All In were as chaotic as the on-screen action, with CM Punk getting into an altercation with Jack Perry. The skirmish came after Perry made comments directed toward Punk during his Zero Hour match against HOOK, and while reports vary on who instigated the fight backstage, the altercation turned physical.

Perry was sent home from the arena while Punk went on to defeat Samoa Joe in the opening bout of the main show. Punk reportedly met with security after his bout and left Wembley Stadium of his own accord as he believed it would be better for everyone involved.

Punk also reportedly had a heated confrontation with AEW President Tony Khan, stemming from frustration over travel arrangements as well as his issues with Jack Perry.

Will CM Punk Be At AEW All Out?

In the aftermath of the incident, both Punk and Perry have been suspended as an investigation into their confrontation takes place. Tony Khan himself hasn’t given an update on what this suspension means for both men at AEW All Out, saying he’s still looking into things when it comes to the investigation.

Now, a new report from Haus of Wrestling reveals that Khan and Punk have not had direct communication with one another, and that Punk’s status for All Out is “unlikely.” Nick Hausman writes:

“Haus of Wrestling has learned that Punk and Khan have still not been in direct communication since All In this past Sunday and that Punk appearing as part of All Out and Collision this weekend is unlikely. It is always possible that something will happen in the next forty-eight hours, but it does not feel like fans should get their hopes up in regard to the “Real AEW World Champion” popping up at The United Center.”

According to a recent report, CM Punk was originally planned to face Ricky Starks at All Out prior to his suspension. As of now, Starks is set to issue a challenge to Ricky Steamboat on the upcoming episode of Collision.
