One of the names that was suspended by AEW has reportedly returned to work

As previously noted, there was reportedly a physical altercation between members of The Elite and CM Punk after the 2022 AEW Out PPV event when The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega “stormed into” CM Punk’s locker room.

Numerous people were reportedly suspended including CM Punk, Ace Steel, Omega, the Young Bucks, Pat Buck, Christopher Daniels, Michael Nakazawa, and Brandon Cutler. According to Mike Johnson of, Buck is backstage at this week’s AEW Dynamite in Albany, NY and is presumably back to work. Johnson noted that Buck “was kept from last week’s TV taping as everyone who was involved in the CM Punk-Elite backstage fracas at All Out was ordered to remain at home while a third party legal firm was investigating the situation.”

As far as other names go, Omega retweeted a photo of himself at Sega Headquarters in Japan. According to Johnson, a source in AEW said that Omega was there on his own and not in an official capacity with the company. Daniels is also said to be in Japan for dates with All Japan Pro Wrestling.

Punk and The Young Bucks are not in Albany and Punk wasn’t expected to be there regardless due to his surgery.
