However, PW Insider has also reported that ROH was not trying to hire Steel to reach out to Punk. They reported, “I don’t believe they are using Ace to get to the heart of CM Punk, as they initially wanted to bring Steel in during the time period he was fired from AEW and Punk was still contracted to AEW. I think it was wanting to bring in a producer who was good at his job, nothing more.

The two wrestlers were a part of The Second City Saints at ROH with Colt Cabana. Since Punk got Steel into AEW, Steel might return the favor to Punk with a special appearance opportunity. There were reports that CM Punk was also offered a contract from Impact Wrestling earlier. 

One source stated that Impact Wrestling wanted to bring Ace Steel earlier but was waiting for his contract with AEW to get over. Steel was working in a remote position at AEW and Punk was the one who pushed for Steel’s hiring at AEW.
