  1. There’s 4 names I hadn’t even heard about being involved in it. What a complete clusterfuck. The EVPs need to lose that part of their contracts. Punk needs to be fined for the wildly entertaining but completely unprofessional media scrum. Everything else should be handled by the 3rd party but it’s possible that some, or all, of the people involved should lose their jobs completely.

  2. If Punk was throwing punches, he probably should be suspended too. He probably could have just ignored those goofs and walked off. I got a feeling he went slugging at those 3.

    Daniels, Cutler and Nakazawa…wtf were they even doing there anyways? Nakazawa is still with AEW? Dude must be Subject Matter Expert at the buffet line backstage.

  3. Oh yeah and if its true that Jacksons went after CM Punk by kicking down his door to the locker room.

    Those guys should be gone just like Punk.

  4. Why Christopher Daniels was hanging around and got involved is something that I can’t speculate an answer for.

    I can see why Punk might be feeling miffed, but he is also not the most mature guy in the world himself. AEW is definitely in a state of disorientation now.

  5. One name that is not listed is Hangman Adam Page, so I guess he had a cooler head and stayed away from the fracas?

  6. Page wasn’t in the building.
