AEW All In: The Aftermath of the Altercation

This unexpected turn of events left many bewildered, with Tony Khan, the company’s president, almost becoming an unintended victim of the chaos.

Bryan Alvarez highlighted the gravity of the situation on Wrestling Observer Live. He claimed that Samoa Joe, another prominent AEW star, was livid about the entire debacle:

“Several people said he [CM Punk] threatened to quit and he didn’t want to go out for the match. I believe they went to FTR and The Young Bucks and they were like, ‘can you guys open the show?’ and the response was, ‘we’re not ready to open the show.’ Then they went to the six-man with Kenny and Hangman and all those guys and they were like, ‘can you open the show?’ and they were like, ‘I guess we can’ and so they were getting ready to go out. I was told that Joe was just FURIOUS because he’s at Wembley, there’s 80,000 people there and he’s about to go out and apparently…he [Joe] talked Punk into doing the match.”

Joe’s frustration was palpable as he was preparing to perform in front of a massive crowd of 80,000 at Wembley Stadium. According to sources, Samoa Joe played a crucial role in convincing Punk to proceed with his scheduled match.
