All Elite Wrestling (AEW) owner Tony Khan held a media call today to address the recent altercation between CM Punk and Jack Perry at AEW’s All In PPV event. The incident, which took place backstage at Wembley Stadium, resulted in both wrestlers being suspended. Khan confirmed the incident and stated that AEW is still investigating the matter.
During the media call, Khan was asked about Punk’s availability for AEW’s upcoming All Out PPV event in Chicago. Khan stated that the investigation is ongoing and he cannot comment further at this time. He assured fans that he is committed to being honest about the situation and will provide updates as soon as possible.
There were rumors that Punk was scheduled to defend his “Real” AEW World title against Ricky Starks at All Out. A segment involving Starks and the legendary Ricky Steamboat was announced for AEW’s Collision event, which could have been used for Punk’s return. However, there is no confirmation that Punk will be participating in either show this weekend.
When asked if fans will know whether or not Punk will be on the card before All Out starts, Khan expressed his goal of providing a resolution or at least more information by then. He acknowledged the challenging nature of the situation and his determination to continue working on it.
