“Those familiar with the situation said that the meeting was relatively uneventful all things considered, and especially when taken into consideration the issues the two have had” Fightful added.

“When Punk first joined AEW, we’re told that Jericho approached Punk to establish that bygones were bygones, and Punk had replied in kind, as long as there were no reason to have issues going forward.

“Jericho was have said to have shouted at Punk after Brawl Out, and Punk called Jericho a stooge during a recent Instagram stories post” the site noted.

“One source said ‘Well, it’s a positive that Jericho and Punk didn’t fight.’ They then followed up jokingly and said ‘well, yet.” Fightful concluded.
