Last year, CM Punk blamed AEW EVPs for spreading bogus stories to the media during the All Out post-show media scrum. Punk and Ace Steel were then involved in a backstage altercation with Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. After the incident, Steel was fired from AEW.
Last June, CM Punk returned to AEW on the debut episode of Collision. Ace Steel was also hired as a backstage producer for the show. However, Steel worked remotely.
In an interview with “Wrestling with Rip Rogers,” Ace Steel discussed his experience in Tony Khan’s company. Steel said that some people in the company are great, but some are not. Steel added that none of them involved in the brawl can say anything about the incident. However, his wife can tell the whole story someday.
“Well, I worked with a lot of great people, some great, some not so much, Family still exists in this business, there are things none of us can say, and none of us will, you know, I think my wife’s the only one who could probably tell the story since she was there. Maybe someday.
You might hear something; I’m sure it’s gonna be on f—king Dark Side of the Ring someday; I laughed at the time, going, ‘All this s–t’s gonna be on Dark Side of the Ring someday,’ you know, someone’s going to want to know.”
Ace Steel also said that he and CM Punk have no legal case regarding the All Out backstage brawl. Steel further said that he’s so proud of his student (CM Punk), who returned to WWE at Survivor Series.
“I’m very proud of my number one student that I’ve ever coached in the world for heading back to show the world who the f–k he is.”
