Jack Perry suspended “indefinitely” following All In clash with CM Punk

Sep 4, 2023 - by Colin Vassallo

During the post-All Out press conference last night, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that Jack Perry remains suspended “indefinitely” for the time being for his actions at All In.

Perry was the one who started the incident with CM Punk, taunting Punk live on camera, resulting in the two having a physical altercation at Gorilla position following his match.

Khan said that the suspension is all he can talk about when it comes to Perry and he has not been backstage since All In.

When The Elite were suspended for their own brawl with CM Punk at last year’s All Out, the trio were out for two whole months. Khan did not specify how long Perry’s suspension will be for.

    People seem to like crapping all over Punk, but they forget that Perry was the one who essentially created the situation by letting his ego get the best of him by opening his mouth towards Punk. If Perry had acted more professionally, the altercation between him & Punk never would have happened. What I don’t get is why it’s so hard for some people to understand that. In any other situation with any other promoter, more likely than not, Perry would have been dealt with just as harshly as Punk was.

    Has AEW not learned from its past? Only time will tell if firing Punk & indef suspending Perry was the right choice to make. TV ratings & viewership, as well as overall event ticket sales, will ultimately show if the decisions TK made were the right ones, and if he made those decisions at the right time.
