CM Punk allegedly had a physical altercation with Jack Perry regarding a segment.

This was not the first time that the Second City Saint had a backstage altercation with fellow wrestlers. He was also earlier involved in an ugly brawl with Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks. Moreover, a year has passed since that incident, but the beef between both parties still allegedly stands.

According to a recent report by ‘Haus of Wrestling’, there was a meeting planned between Punk and The Elite faction before All In, and Tony Khan wanted to settle their differences, but it didn’t take place due to The Elite’s call.

“Haus of Wrestling has learned that a sit-down with the relevant members of The Elite, CM Punk, and Tony Khan was scheduled to take place last week, ahead of AEW: All In London, but was called off at the last minute by The Elite’s camp. From what we understand, it was going to take place in Atlanta, and Tony Khan would have been present.” wrote HOW.

Fans slam The Elite for CM Punk firing

Another fan Quoted: “Imagine if The Elite pushed Jack Perry or influenced him to make the comments. Such a weird situation.” Some fans even praised WWE star Cody Rhodes as he left AEW previously and fans also wanted Punk to do the same rather than getting terminated without any prior notice.
