It could be a little while. Following AEW All Out and its media scrum on September 4, a huge brawl broke out between CM Punk, Ace Steel and Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks (the Elite). The issues came from statements that Punk had made, accusing the Elite of planting stories about him which he says are untrue. The end result was everyone being suspended and now we are waiting on their returns. It turns out we might be waiting longer than expected.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the Elite has not heard anything back from AEW about their suspensions. The company is not planning to make any public announcements about the situation and has not addressed it on AEW TV. There is a chance that legal issues are holding up the situation, along with a possible “second hold up” of unknown details. There is no word on when the Elite will be back on AEW TV, but Punk is expected to miss around eight months after tearing his tricep.
Opinion: This is a situation that is going to take a very long time to sort out and that is not a surprise. At the end of the day, a group of executive vice presidents went into the locker room of a wrestler and got in a fist fight. There isn’t much of a way to spin something like that and I’m not sure how well the whole thing is going to go. The Elite needs to be gone for the time being and that is what AEW has done.
What do you think of the situation? What punishment should the Elite face? Let us know in the comments below.
