CM Punk reportedly ready to leave AEW and move on to his next project

As previously noted, there could be a buyout of CM Punk’s AEW contract following his backstage altercation with The Elite.

In regards to CM Punk possibly returning to feud with The Elite, Dave Meltzer of noted that those close to the situation believe there is “no chance” or “very little” chance of that happening. It’s believed that both sides publicly joked about the altercation as a way to get out their frustrations and for legal reasons, neither side can publicly tell their story and they might never be allowed to.

Meltzer also wrote the following…

“Punk as of the weekend was still under contract to AEW and being paid and those close to him say the hold up on his being released is all on the AEW side as he’s ready and willing to move to his next project.”
