CM Punk: Interaction with The Elite
There were some issues after the very first week when Punk returned and took some digs at The Elite during his promo.
However, that seems to have died down, and there has been nothing else said since then. Tony Khan, the president of AEW, has specifically made sure to keep anyone that may have issues with Punk away from Collision.
