Is CM Punk suing AEW? Investigating the aftermath of former world champion’s firing

CM Punk’s sudden firing from AEW a few weeks ago has been the talk of the wrestling industry. Many have been wondering if he might return to WWE now that he’s a free agent and potentially sue AEW and his former boss, Tony Khan, for letting him go, but that doesn’t appear to be the case at the moment.

CM Punk was released from AEW due to a ton of controversies including his recent backstage altercation with Jack Perry. After an investigation, Punk’s AEW contract was terminated by Tony Khan few weeks ago.

CM Punk’s decision regarding suing AEW

AEW parted ways with CM Punk on September 2, terminating his contract following a thorough investigation of the backstage incident at AEW All In. The company decided that it would be in their best interest to release The Second City Saint. As of now, Punk himself has confirmed that his departure from the company won’t be followed by a lawsuit on his behalf.

Nick Hausman from Haus of Wrestling has reported that, after speaking to CM Punk himself, he learned more about the superstar’s termination. Punk clarified that he does not have any pending litigation against AEW President Tony Khan, who has also gone on record to say that he personally felt his life was in danger during the backstage incident at All In. Punk, on the other hand, is looking to avoid any further legal trouble with AEW and wants to move forward with his life.

According to Hausman, Punk could be seen breathing a sigh of relief after his departure from the company. Ever since his return to AEW in June, he had been surrounded by controversies and constant drama. Before his firing, Punk was also reportedly stranded at an airport by AEW. Although Punk is not interested in pursuing any legal action against the company, it’s unclear as of now whether AEW has any pending legal action against him.

Punk’s WWE return speculation

After Tony Khan announced Punk’s termination from AEW, The Second City Saint made his first appearance in a commentary gig at CFFC MMA 125 event, where he made a subtle tease to his wrestling career moving forward.

Survivor Series is scheduled for November this year in Chicago, which happens to be CM Punk’s hometown. This has led fans to speculate that “The Best in The World” could make his long-awaited return to WWE at the event. However, several sources have suggested that the chances of this happening are relatively low. In his recent commentary role, Punk mentioned that he has a lot of free time on his hands for the next two months, potentially teasing a return.

As of now, there’s no definitive confirmation regarding his return to the ring. Fans can only wait and hope to see CM Punk back in action soon, and if it happens, it could have a significant impact on WWE.
