CM Punk gets into real-life brawl in the backstage of AEW

Punk reportedly got into an altercation with Kenny Omega and Matt and Nick Johnson shortly after he won the AEW Championship at All Out on Sunday.


It looks like Sunday's All Out pay-per-view event from All Elite Wrestling will go down in the history books, but not necessarily for a good reason.

Don't expect anyone from the alleged backstage brawl to be working together anytime soon.

According to several reports, CM Punk and Ace Steel got into a real-life fight backstage with Executive Vice Presidents, Matt and Nick Jackson.

CM Punk was hyped after winning the AEW World Championship by defeating John Moxley. Unfortunately, Punk couldn't keep his temper in check at the AEW media scrum. Punk called out plenty of people, including the AEW EVPs and Adam "Hangman" Page. The new AEW World Champion described the former as "irresponsible" while he used the phrase "empty-headed dumb f***" for the latter.

There are conflicting reports about what happened afterward. Some are saying that Punk threw the first punch and hit Matt Jackson. Ace Steel is also believed to have thrown a chair at Nick Jackson. But, other parties are saying that the Young Bucks started the fight after they "barged" into the locker room. Either way, the lack of footage suggested that this isn't a fabricated fight.

Some rumors suggest that AEW might fire CM Punk soon.

Most likely, we'll find out more in the next episode of AEW Dynamite on Wednesday. If AEW tries to sweep it under the rug and act like nothing happened, you best bet that something is going on.
