News has emerged that Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks seemingly threatening to walk away from AEW following CM Punk’s explosive media scrum comments.
CM Punk may be the new AEW World Champion but the headlines have been stolen for what he said in the post-All Out media scrum.
Punk railed against Hangman Adam Page before launching into a fierce attack on the AEW EVPs – Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks – over his belief they were involved in stories relating to his influence over Colt Cabana’s diminished role in AEW.
Now Fightful Select has reported that CM Punk has generated a significant amount of heat for himself backstage with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks said to be “extremely p*ssed off.” One source also claimed that The Elite were “threatening to walk” over Punk’s comments.
Fightful makes clear that they have never heard comments not made in interviews about Colt Cabana in AEW from Omega or The Bucks, and Tony Khan recently publicly denied that CM Punk had anything to do with the decision to move Cabana to Ring of Honor. In fact, the report says, that Cabana approached Khan and said he’d be unhappy in AEW if Punk joined the company.
The report adds that there was security moving around the scrum in a hurry after Punk left with Omega and The Young Bucks originally scheduled to speak at the press conference but plans quickly changed.
