The owner of the company Tony Khan, son of Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a statement it was his decision alone to fire C.M. Punk, saying, “Phil played an important role within AEW and I thank him for his contributions. The termination of his AEW contracts with cause is ultimately my decision and mine alone. Of course, I wish I didn’t have to share this news, which may come as a disappointment to many of our fans,” wrote Khan in the company’s statement.

C.M. Punk has had a controversial history in the pro wrestling world. There were allegations he was involved in another similar incident in September 2022 that led to a long-term suspension. He only recently returned to the company in time for the Wembley adium event.
