Malakai Black

Malakai Black’s time in AEW is at an end, as he has received a conditional release this week after he requested a full release earlier this year, and now Black will be officially pulled from upcoming appearances.

Black was scheduled for the upcoming Northeast Wrestling show on Friday where he was set to face Matt Taven. Jay Lethal and Enzo Amore, but the promotion announced that Black was pulled from the event due to “health issues”.

AEW President Tony Khan stated earlier this summer that Black “has almost five years left on his deal. I wouldn’t expect him going anywhere anytime soon.” However, his release likely came with a non-compete clause to prevent him from jumping back to WWE, where he is likely heading once his personal issues are addressed.

CM Punk will be out of action for considerable time, and it may also mark an end to his run in AEW.

After defeating Jon Moxley to reclaim the AEW World Championship, Punk made some harsh comments during the post-event media scrum that prompted a backstage altercation involving AEW superstars The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, who have since been suspended.

Punk was injured during his match with Moxley, and while he may be out for considerable time, he also could be ultimately fired from the company. AEW stripped Punk of the World Championship on Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite.

“Punk’s out for eight months, or whatever it’s going to be, six months/eight months, whatever” according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. “If he’s not let go, and a lot of people don’t want him back.”

More is coming out regarding the CM Punk/Kenny Omega/The Young Bucks fight following the All-Out media scrum this weekend, and now former WCW President and WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff is speaking about Punk’s comments.

Punk dropped some scathing comments about ‘Hangman’ Adam Page, The Young Bucks, Colt Cabana, and Kenny Omega, which led to a backstage fight.

“He [Tony Khan]’s paying that cat lots of money. He’s paying CM Punk a fortune and CM Punk is cutting his balls off, not only in front of everybody else in the roster, the executive team, the production team, oh, by the way, his business partners, you know, like Warner Discovery, potential advertisers, potential sponsors, maybe even if need be, a potential network to sell their show to should something go wrong with the Warner Discovery merger. For what reason?”

“If there was money in it, if it was part of a story, and everybody I just mentioned including TV partners are on board and understand what you’re doing, have had it man. It could work. I’ll be your biggest fan. I’ll support taking a risk like that because you have to take big risks to gain big rewards. You just do. Not all of them work out, but you gotta try, and if that’s what they’re doing, hats off if everybody’s on board, but if Punk is just venting his spleen, spreading the heat around the entire roster, instead of focusing on his opponent which is business, man, I feel bad for Tony.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co).
