With several suspensions handed out to AEW stars after the fight backstage at All Out, there has been some internal reaction to some of those ending.

Following reports that Pat Buck was in attendance at the September 14th edition of AEW Dynamite in Albany, New York it has now been confirmed that a number of other personnel have also had their suspensions lifted.

The report from Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio noted that Pat Buck, Brandon Cutler, Christopher Daniels, and Michael Nakazawa have had their suspensions ended. However, the status of the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, CM Punk, and Ace Steel remains “up in the air.”

Fightful Select has now reported that those with knowledge of the situation in AEW have suggested that the four men whose suspensions have come to an end were only suspended for “precautionary reasons” before the full situation became clearer. There had been suggestions that threats of lawsuits had been mentioned during the altercation.

The report confirms that the situation surrounding The Elite, CM Punk, and Ace Steel is still less clear. It also notes that there were others nearby at the time of the incident but the belief is they were not suspended as they did not become physically involved. It was earlier reported that MJF was said to be a “neutral witness” as to what happened.
