Report: Reason Christopher Daniels, Brandon Cutler, Pat Buck & Michael Nakazawa Were Suspended By AEW Revealed

Why the four men were suspended by AEW

All Elite Wrestling rescinded the suspensions of Christopher Daniels, Pat Buck, Michael Nakazawa, and Brandon Cutler this week and the four men are free to return to work. Buck was reportedly backstage at Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite from Albany, New York, while Nakazawa and Daniels are both in Japan working shows and helping to promote AEW: Fight Forever at the Tokyo Game Show. 

Daniels, Buck, Nakazawa, and Cutler were suspended by AEW following their involvement in a backstage fight between CM Punk, Ace Steel, and The Elite post-All Out and it is believed they tried to break up the altercation. 

It was a surprise when they were suspended along with The Elite, Punk, and Ace Steel, but Fightful Select have reported the four men were sent home as a precaution "until the situation became more squared away." A couple of other individuals who were close to the fight were not suspended and while not confirmed, it was noted a suspension was not needed since they weren't physically involved in the altercation. 

Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, CM Punk, and Ace Steel remain suspended while a third-party investigation determines what happened after All Out. Their long-term futures with All Elite Wrestling are unclear.
