Video Footage Exists Of CM Punk & Jack Perry Altercation

CM Punk Jack Perry AEW

According to a new report, the investigation into CM Punk & Jack Perry’s backstage altercation will be aided by video footage.

During Jack Perry’s match with HOOK on the All In pre-show, the former Jungle Boy looked into the camera and said, “It’s real glass, cry me a river.” His words were in direct reference to reports that he and CM Punk had gotten into an argument on an early episode of Collision that stemmed from Perry wanting to use real glass as part of a spot and Punk putting a stop to that.

Accounts differ on what exactly went down once Perry came backstage, but it’s well-documented that an altercation took place between Perry and Punk and that 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.

AEW President Tony Khan alluded to the incident during a post-show media scrum and said that an investigation was being launched. It was later reported that both men have been suspended as the company awaits the results of that investigation, placing them in doubt for All Out on September 3rd.
