Sean Ross Sapp is reporting that the heat towards CM Punk is “unreal” and talent feels that he would have to make major amends to remain with the company.
At this point, there has been nothing officially announced by AEW. Brian Last (Jim Cornette’s podcast co-host and owner of The Wrestling News website) reported earlier today that the parties that were involved in the backstage incident have been suspended. AEW has not publicly confirmed this.
Wade Keller stated on his live podcast that he expects some major announcements between now and tomorrow before Dynamite.
Sapp tweeted the following:
“Right now AEW talent have not been told anything official. Almost all I’ve spoken to believe CM Punk will have to go or make major amends to remain with the company.
A lot of the talent haven’t arrived where Dynamite broadcasting from yet, but the heat on Punk is unreal.”
“Haven’t got any official word on that or suspensions. There are so many rampant “done deal” rumors about what is happening, that it’s getting almost impossible to verify.
AEW isn’t talking, Tony Khan, Punk Bucks, Omega, Ace Steel aren’t.
A lot of conjecture and expectations”
Dave Meltzer also noted that: “The belief is that nobody involved in the fracas will be at TV tomorrow and that other top stars not booked originally for Wednesday will be there. A lot of talk of it as suspensions but that isn’t official.”
