A new report has claimed that the investigation into events at AEW All Out has been slowed by one party threatening legal action.
Following AEW All Out the entire wrestling world was rocked by an explosive media appearance by CM Punk and the incredible aftermath.
After capturing the AEW World Championship for a second time in front of his adoring Chicago public in the main event, CM Punk launched into a tirade at a post-show media scrum. The star took aim at Colt Cabana, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page while AEW President Tony Khan was sat just feet away.
When he was done addressing the media, there was a fight backstage involving Punk, Ace Steel and The Elite, while numerous figures attempted to break up the melee. The end result was a raft of suspensions, a third-party investigation and two championships were vacated.
However, it has now been over a month since the incident, and news of the investigation has gone quiet. According to a new report, this is due to one of the parties involved being uncooperative and threatening legal action.
Writing on the Wrestling Observer message board, Ryan Fredricks stated:
“There’s been some hold-ups on completing the investigation. Supposedly, it should be wrapped up soon.”
Dave Meltzer added that “One person has threatened legal action and been uncooperative.”
Speaking in a recent interview, Tony Khan said that he was unable to comment on the incident as the investigation was still “ongoing.”
