Please do it later. In what shouldn’t be a shock, CM Punk was involved in a backstage altercation at AEW All In, this time with Jack Perry. As a result, both of them have been suspended, with Punk not being expected to wrestle at All Out in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. That likely meant a big match being taken off of the card. Now we have a good idea of what was removed.

According to Fightful Select, Punk was scheduled to face Ricky Stars at All Out, likely in the main event. The two have been feuding in recent months and have traded wins. Starks had his wrestling license suspended due to an attack on Ricky Steamboat following a loss to Punk but he would have been back in time for All Out. As of this writing, Starks has not been announced for a match at All Out.
They have a history. Check out Starks vs. Punk:
Opinion: That’s quite the shame, especially for Starks, who had nothing to do with what happened. He is likely out of one of the biggest match of his career and that is a shame given when he could have gotten to do. Hopefully Starks gets another chance to do something good and whatever does get the main event slot isn’t drowned out by chants for Punk, who likely won’t be there.
