CM Punk 'Breathing A Sigh Of Relief' Following AEW Firing, Not Planning To Sue Tony Khan
CM Punk looking to move on following his AEW firing
CM Punk appears to be a happier man following his firing with cause by All Elite Wrestling.
According to Nick Hausman of Haus of Wrestling, CM Punk has been described to him as "someone breathing a sign [sic] of relief now that he is away from the day-to-day drama that seemed to follow him at AEW." Punk also does not have any litigation pending against Tony Khan and the two-time AEW World Champion is reportedly looking to move on with his life.
If Tony Khan is planning to file a lawsuit against CM Punk is unknown, but the situation appears to be quiet between AEW and their former world champion, Haus of Wrestling noted.
CM Punk, of course, often found himself at the centre of backstage drama during his two-year run with All Elite Wrestling. The final straw came at AEW All In on August 27 when CM Punk was involved in a backstage altercation with Jack Perry. Punk also reportedly had multiple confrontations with Tony Khan before, during, and after the altercation with Perry.
Punk was suspended following All In and later fired following an internal investigation, during which witnesses were interviewed and AEW reviewed CCTV footage of the incident with Perry. Tony Khan when addressing Punk's firing said he feared for his life at All In.
