With the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega suspended from AEW, Being the Elite is on hiatus until further notice.
While there was plenty of action to be seen at AEW All Out, it was overshadowed by the events that followed the show. Shortly after the pay-per-view went off the air, CM Punk appeared alongside Tony Khan at the post-show media scrum and launched into a tirade about his relationship (or lack thereof) and legal history with Colt Cabana, who he called by his real name of Scott Colton.
Not only that, he also had biting insults for the AEW EVP’s, who he said “couldn’t manage a Target” much less a wrestling company. He also called out Adam Page by name, angry about comments Page had made ahead of their AEW World Title match.
Angry with the comments aimed at them, the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega reportedly went to CM Punk’s locker room to confront him. While there are conflicting stories as to who instigated a physical confrontation, the situation did turn physical, with CM Punk throwing punches and Ace Steel confirmed to have pulled Kenny Omega’s hair and bitten him.
In the wake of the incident, a number of people involved were suspended from the company, including the Bucks and Omega who had won the AEW Trios World Championships earlier that night. Tony Khan announced on Dynamite that both the Trios Titles and the AEW World Championship had been vacated.
Therefore, it comes as little surprise that the YouTube series Being the Elite is also on hiatus until further notice as announced on the show’s official Twitter account. The series is made by and regularly features the Bucks and Omega along with other members of the AEW roster.
“No #BeingTheElite this week. On hiatus until further notice.”

There has been no word on when the AEW EVP’s will have their suspension lifted and return to television, but Inside the Ropes will continue to report on the situation as more information becomes available.
