Reports have stated that CM Punk is no longer connected with AEW. The decision was made after his suspension following a backstage altercation with Jack Perry during AEW in London. Seemingly, Tony Khan's wrestling promotion has opted to separate from the former WWE star. The question stands: What's in for CM Punk following his exit from AEW? What's next for CM Punk after his exit from AEW? The pro wrestling realm saw something similar last year. Sasha Banks and Naomi had a backstage dispute with the WWE Creative. It eventually led to their departure from the company. Now again, it's a backstage confrontation, but the place is AEW. During the latest AEW Collision event, Tony Khan surprisingly declared that the company has released CM Punk. The news was an absolute stunner to both Punk's fans, and the promotions provided his immense popularity. The statement from AEW CEO suggests the termination came from a thorough internal investigation into an incident that happened backstage at AEW All in London on Sunday, August 27th. Following the investigation, the AEW Discipline Committee, collaboratively with external legal counsel, unanimously recommended to Tony Khan that Punk be terminated with cause. Despite some fans' speculations about a possible return to WWE for the 'Second City Saviour,' CM Punk has brought severe allegations against WWE. That includes claims of medical negligence, lack of respect, and other issues when he quit the company. Given this scenario, it's impossible to picture his return to WWE, provided there's a drastic change in the situation.
