Report: Backstage News On AEW All In Intercation Between CM Punk & Miro
What happened between Miro and CM Punk backstage at AEW All In?
CM Punk appeared to have actually had a laugh with people between all of his screaming and fighting backstage at All Elite Wrestling's All In pay-per-view on Sunday, August 27.
Punk had a backstage altercation with Jack Perry between Perry's Zero Hour match with HOOK and Punk's match with Samoa Joe. This came after Punk angrily confronted Tony Khan over him not being picked up from the airport.
Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer reported that Miro and Punk almost had an incident backstage following the 44-year-old's match with Samoa Joe in the trainer's room but Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select has since reported the interaction was a jokey one.
"From one side of things, the Punk side of things, I heard just like...'No'. And then from the Miro side of things, which wasn't Miro directly – who by the way, quote-tweeted WrestlePurists' aggregation of Punk's side (of the Perry situation) and said 'not true', so very clearly he wasn't keen on Punk's side of things - but they had an interaction after Punk's match. It was backstage, either in the trainer's room or somewhere, and Punk was getting worked on, etc. I don't know verbatim what was said because I wasn't there, but to the best of what has been relayed to me, Miro asked how Punk was doing, Punk said something like, 'Okay unless you want to fight me too', as like a joke, type of thing. And again, terminology, not that sure of," Sean Ross Sapp said.
"And I believe Miro, also jokingly, apparently, from what I've heard, was like, 'Okay', Punk said, 'Well let's take this outside then', and Miro said something like, 'How about we take this... to the ring!' And that's how it was explained to me by sources that lean definitely each way. And they giggled about it, and I guess walked off. But it is two guys who are very clearly willing to fight human beings, and also have been known to make a joke or two."
Sapp wasn't 100 percent sure about the exact quotes but that was the general idea of what happened.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported that Punk and Miro travelled to Wembley Stadium together with Brody King. There were words between Miro and Punk in the trainer's room but they were described as banter.
