Following AEW’s All Out 2022 event, Punk spoke openly at a press conference, verbally berating several other AEW superstars, however, this wasn’t part of the script, and instead real backstage issues were brought to light.Following this, some of the wrestlers that Punk referred to, including Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson), confronted Punk in his locker room.

This quickly lead to a brawl which saw one of Punk’s associates, former pro wrestler Ace Steel, reportedly bite Omega.Following the incident, all involved were suspended pending an internal investigation, however, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks made their return to AEW television last night, while Punk hasn’t been referenced, and is being widely reported to be done with the company.The debut video game for the upstart rival to WWE is being developed
