The AEW All-In was the buzz of the wrestling world. After facing a few hiccups, AEW delivered a memorable show finally in the Wembley Stadium, London. Many stars of the pro wrestling world were present including but not limited to Adam Cole, MJF, Jon Moxley, Adam Page, and so on. But fans were eager to see CM Punk in action. But given Punk’s history in AEW, he could stay away from being in the news even before the first match on the main card.

Punk got into a heated argument with The Jungle Boy, Jack Perry. After that things just took an ugly turn for both of them.

During the pre-show Perry decided to do a spot involving a car window in his match against Hook. Looking at the camera Perry said, “It’s real glass, cry me a river.” This appeared to be a shot at Punk, who had previously opposed Perry’s idea to use real glass on an episode of Collison.

Returning backstage after the match, Perry and Punk exchanged words, and reportedly things escalated and got physical between the two stars.

During the media scrum, Tony Khan did address this issue and he said that it is under investigation. “There was an incident backstage before we went live, we are investigating it”, he said. There were rumors going around about their apparent suspension. Later on, wrestling reporter Sean Ross Sapp took to X (formerly Twitter) to confirm this news. For now, both Punk and Perry have been suspended for the altercation.

Fans had been eagerly waiting to see CM Punk back in action, but yet again he has faced a suspension. However, fans are wondering what might be next for Punk’s suspension from AEW.
