Several AEW personnel have seemingly been suspended following the backstage scuffle during the post-All Out media scrum, according to reports.

CM Punk won the AEW World Championship after defeating Jon Moxley in the main event of the recently concluded pay-per-view. During the media scrum after the show, Punk took shots at Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks for spreading misinformation about him getting Colt Cabana fired from All Elite Wrestling.

The Elite were allegedly "extremely p*ssed off" with CM Punk's comments and threatened to walk out. It eventually led to a physical altercation between Punk, Ace Steel, Omega, and The Young Bucks.

Now, according to Brian Last of The Wrestling News, multiple AEW personnel present in the room during the backstage incident have been suspended.

Jim Cornette sided with AEW World Champion CM Punk following his comments in the post-All Out media scrum

While speaking on the recent edition of Jim Cornette's Drive-Thru, the former WWE personality said that there was nothing wrong with Punk's comments on The Elite.

Cornette stated that Hangman Page did the same thing in a "more passive-aggressive way" during his feud with CM Punk before Double or Nothing 2022.

"I see a lot of people on Twitter today going: ‘How dare Punk do something like this?’ Well, I believe the motivating factor in all of this was when ol’ [Hangman Page] did the exact same thing – only not as good – and in [a] more passive-aggressive way, which is [how] the [Young Bucks] and all of their little buckaroos do things," Cornette pointed out.
