Report: AEW Star Told CM Punk He Was 'Locker Room Cancer' After All Out
CM Punk was confronted by a top AEW star after the events of All Out's post-show
By now we all have an idea of the events of AEW All Out’s post-show, with CM Punk voicing his displeasure with Colt Cabana, Adam Page, and The Elite on the official post-show media scrum, before a fight occurred in Punk’s locker room featuring himself, The Elite, and Ace Steel.
After the events of ‘brawl out’, all involved with the fight were suspended, with several locker room leaders stepping up to restore a semblance of calm. A new report from Fightful Select says one of these leaders even addressed Punk to his face, with Chris Jericho confronting Punk after the fight.
Sources told Fightful that Jericho allegedly told Punk he was a ‘cancer to the locker room’ and a ‘detriment’ to AEW, with Jericho reportedly very angry about Punk’s perceived lack of professionalism and decorum during his press conference appearance, as well as the events of the backstage fight.
Whilst Punk’s response has not been reported verbatim, it is believed Punk told Jericho that it was none of his business. Fightful received confirmation of the exchange from someone close to Punk.
In the weeks following All Out, Jericho has been praised by many within AEW for stepping up in the locker-room.
