ORIGINAL CM Punk plans for ALL OUT revealed

Last updated

CM Punk was originally supposed to defend his ‘real’ AEW world title at ALL OUT.

A lot of things have changed in AEW recently. After CM Punk got into yet another altercation at ALL IN PPV this past Sunday, his status with the company has become uncertain.

Punk was originally known to have had a confrontation with Jack Perry at the show. New reports, however, have come out saying that he had a heated exchange with Tony Khan as well.

The AEW star has since been suspended from the promotion and there is no news on when or if he will return to the company this time.

CM Punk: ALL OUT plans

Amid all the drama, Fightful Select recently provided some updates on what AEW had originally planned for CM Punk at ALL OUT. According to the site, the original plan was for Ricky Starks to face Punk at the show:

“One of the matches on the table was CM Punk vs. Ricky Starks for the AEW Real Worlds Championship, which would have followed up their series of matches that went down this summer. From what we’ve heard it likely would have been the main event. There’s no word on the status of the match now that CM Punk was suspended after his physical altercation with Jack Perry.”

Regarding Starks’ suspension storyline, the site confirmed that he is fit and not injured in any way. He didn’t wrestle at ALL IN because the company had no plans for him:

“Several readers inquired asking if Ricky Starks was injured. We’ve confirmed that he’s not, and was always planned to remain on television, with several ideas for him on the table. However, he wasn’t set to be booked for AEW All In, so the storyline made sense from that perspective. He was discussed for a big match at AEW All Out – against CM Punk.”
