A former WWE personality believes CM Punk will sue Tony Khan following the infamous All Out backstage brawl.
All Out 2022 took place on September 4th and featured a colossal 15-match card, including the Buy-In pre-show. However, the entire event was overshadowed by what took place after the show.
Following explosive comments made by CM Punk during the post-show media scrum, a legitimate backstage brawl reportedly took place between Punk, Ace Steel, Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, with all parties subsequently being suspended by the company.
None of the key figures involved have returned to the company since the incident and former WWE manager Zeb Colter doesn’t believe we’ll ever see CM Punk in AEW again.
Speaking on a recent episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s SmackTalk, Colter had the following to say when asked if he thinks Punk will return:
“I don’t think so. I don’t think he cares either. There’s a guy that cares about the money, so he wants to buy out and they can actually fight that and probably tie him up in court because I think Tony Khan has a lot more money than CM Punk has,”
Colter, perhaps better known as Dutch Mantell, went on to suggest that Punk may end up trying to sue Tony Khan and AEW:
“I think CM Punk is gonna sue them. For some reason, I don’t know why I think that, but he didn’t have any hesitation to sue Colt Cabana and now he sees a billionaire over there. And if he sues him maybe he’ll do a settlement early? I hope not .The Bucks, I don’t see them. [Punk] is really a wildcard, but the fans have stopped talking about him, The Bucks, so it’s water under the dam.”
CM Punk was recently spotted out in public for the first time since the controversial brawl after being pictured with a fan.
