In a crazy year for professional wrestling, the most talked about event of the year continues to be the now infamous backstage brawl that took place following AEW’s All Out event.
During the post-All Out media scrum, CM Punk took shots at a number of his co-workers which led to him being confronted by Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks in his locker room and multiple people becoming embroiled in a melee.
While multiple people were suspended by AEW following the brawl, most have returned to work and those involved seem to be keen to move on from the unsavoury incident.
However, CM Punk has yet to return and his long-term future with the company remains unclear.
Shawn Spears Offers His Thought On The CM Punk Situation
AEW star Shawn Spears recently participated in a virtual signing event for ‘K & S WrestleFest’ and was asked to give his thoughts on the situation regarding CM Punk:
“Sad, overall sad. That’s what I think. It’s sad. I wish it didn’t happen. That’s the other thing too, I wasn’t there. Most things do happen publicly, but I wasn’t there and I don’t have any first-hand knowledge.”
While Kenny Omega himself has urged people move on from the incident, he and the Young Bucks put the saga back in the spotlight after mocking CM Punk on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, which aired live from Punk’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
As for Shawn Spears, he returned to television last month after not wrestling a match in AEW since the May 25th episode of Dynamite. Interestingly, Spears now appears to have reverted back to his ‘Perfect 10’ gimmick, which he enjoyed great success with during his run in NXT while performing under the name of Tye Dillinger.
