AEW President Tony Khan comments on decision to air video footage of CM Punk’s altercation with Jack Perry

During the April 6th 2024 edition of AEW Collision, it was announced that The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson) will present backstage footage from AEW All In and will discuss it for the first time on the April 10th edition of Dynamite. It was previously reported that video footage exists of the CM Punk backstage altercation with Jack Perry at All In. Punk recently told his side of the story during an interview with The MMA Hour.

While speaking to, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that the decision to air the footage is not a bait and switch tactic…

“AEW has a great track record on delivering what we advertise, and it is real footage. The Young Bucks will show backstage footage from All In, the most important event in AEW history–the world record-holder for the most tickets ever sold for any wrestling record, over 81,035 total–and it was an important night backstage, as well.”

“The decision is based on putting on the best show for AEW, as well as driving interest for Dynamite and our Dynasty pay-per-view on April 21. This is real-life footage that affected many people, and it will air for the first time on TBS during Dynamite.”

“The Young Bucks are wrestling for the world tag team championship at AEW Dynasty against longtime rivals FTR. Their rivalry is one of the most significant ever in AEW, and there is a good reason why the Young Bucks are showing this video. It’s important that the Young Bucks explain the reason why this is relevant going into Dynasty. It should be another must-see part of a great show on Dynamite.”

Over the weekend, Bryan Alvarez of said the following about why Khan decided to air the footage…

“Tony was very upset about CM Punk’s interview. And apparently, I was told that he wanted to air this footage a long time ago. And for whatever reason, he did not. And now, I guess because of the timing and the interview and what CM Punk said, he is going to air it.”
