Update On Ace Steel Getting Fired By AEW – Ace Steel is no longer with AEW after his involvement in the backstage fight at AEW All Out, along with CM Punk, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks.
Steel allegedly threw a chair and bit Omega during the fight. Everyone involved in the altercation has been suspended and cannot publicly comment or mention the situation due to an ongoing third-party investigation.
As previously reported, Steel was released by AEW earlier this week.
Dave Meltzer responded to a user on F4Wonline.com who mentioned, “It has been about a week since Ace Steel tweeted “Freedom” by the Blues Brothers Sounds like he was told he was being let go, but the news got out today.”
Meltzer noted that Steel thought he wasn’t going to be let go. He wrote, “Nope, he actually thought the opposite and was surprised.”
Steel joined the promotion earlier this year as a producer and later appeared on television as part of the build-up to All Out, where he did a promo on Punk to fire him up about facing Jon Moxley at All Out.
On a related note, Jim Ross talked about Ace Steel being released from AEW:
“He’s a smart guy. He has a lot of product knowledge. Solid hand. I thought he did a nice job. I didn’t work with him directly a lot. I have seen him at TV and he was always friendly and approachable. I’m sorry to hear that because I thought he was a good hand and did a nice job there. Things have a way of working out. You never say never, but I always thought he did a nice job for us. He was very loyal to CM Punk. Nothing wrong with that. They were buddies. I’m assuming CM Punk is the guy that got Ace Steel his job. I don’t know where all of that is going. I hate to see anybody lose a job, lose a paycheck. While he was there, he seemed to be a viable asset, but again, I didn’t work with him directly. I didn’t have any issues, pro or con, with him. The bottom line is, another guy lost his job. That’s what’s regrettable.”
