What happened next?
AEW hosted a press conference following the event, but that’s where Punk’s star soon fell. Instead of focusing on his historic win, Punk instead chose the moment to lambaste his fellow AEW wrestlers. Punk held nothing back as he dropped F-bombs, bashing stars like Adam Page, Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks.
Did the problems end there?
No. After his verbal tirade, Punk went backstage, where he was confronted by the Young Bucks and Omega. The trio, who had earlier won the Trios Titles at the pay-per-view, confronted Punk after what he said. The group were then involved in a backstage brawl involving other wrestlers and producers.
What actions were taken against those involved?
Punk was stripped of the World Heavyweight Title, while Omega and the Bucks were stripped of the Trios Titles. All the wrestlers involved were also suspended.
Who believes that CM Punk should be fired?
Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell has shared his thoughts on the matter and believes that everyone involved, including Punk, should have been fired, TJRWrestling reported.
Punk was injured during the fight with Moxley and underwent surgery during the course of last week. He will be out of action for eight months.
AEW CEO Tony Khan has yet to confirm whether Punk will be fired, but more details are expected to be released soon about the state of all those involved.
