CM Punk reportedly has “big heat” and was involved in altercation with the Young Bucks after All Out
As previously noted, CM Punk blasted Adam Page and Colt Cabana during the 2022 AEW All Out PPV’s post-show media scrum. Punk also took aim at AEW’s EVPs (The Elite) when he said “if you’re an EVP you don’t try to belittle your top babyface to try to get your niche audience that’s on the internet to hate him for some made-up bullsh*t rumor.”
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com, there is already “big heat” for what CM Punk said and Sapp noted that “a couple of talent were told that some very important names were pissed off and threatening to walk out over this. Obviously at this stage, we have to be cognizant of a possible work.”

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com provided more details on the situation…
“Apparently there was an altercation after [Punk] left the press conference. He was obviously very mad, and we had multiple, multiple sources state that there was an altercation. I wasn’t there, I don’t know everything that happened, but many people said that there was an altercation with Punk and the Young Bucks. I don’t know who else was there, but it happened, and everybody knew about it, and a security guard did in fact go running out of the press conference.”
“I would presume that there were people that did the press conference that knew this had happened, but Tony Khan did not know that it had happened because Tony Khan did not have his phone and nobody told him until after.” (quotes courtesy of WrestleTalk.com)
Dave Meltzer described the situation as a “melee” and Sapp added that there were “unconfirmed rumors” of CM Punk and Ace Steele being involved in some sort of “skirmish” with members of The Elite.
In the early morning, Matt Hardy tweeted a photo of himself with the Bucks and Kenny Omega as well as a photo with Page.
