AEW Fight Forever promotional plans may change due to suspension

If, by this point, you’ve been sick of hearing about the AEW backstage brawl between the Elite, CM Punk, and Ace Steel, you’re not alone. I wish the biggest story in wrestling continues, as fans, pundits and everyone else involved in the industry wait to see who gets suspended and who gets fired. Or, in the case of a recent report, who will be in “Dynamite” tonight and what that means for AEW’s upcoming video game, “Fight Forever.”

In an update that will surprise very few, fighter selection is reporting that the main tenets of controversy, including Kenny Omega, Young Bucks, Punk and Steele, are no longer at the “AEW Dynamite” taping in Albany, New York today. At the time of this writing, Fightful is confirming the position of Brandon Cutler, who was reportedly one of several individuals who attempted to break up the fight. Although the Bucks or Steele were likely to be backstage at “Dynamite” this week, with the ongoing investigation into the controversy quickly ending, no one will be shocked to learn that neither Punk or Omega will be backstage. Punk is expected to lose significant time as he recovers from a torn triceps injury, while Omega is currently in Japan with AEW’s Michael Nakazawa for the Tokyo Game Show.

Whether Omega will be part of the promotion of “AEW Fight Forever” at TGS is somewhat unclear. Fightful also noted in its report that, while there were plans about some AEW wrestlers promoting “Fight Forever” this week, those plans may have changed after the investigation began. As such, it is unclear whether fans should expect Omega to be part of AEW’s presentation at the convention. AEW’s complete silence on the entire matter remains disappointing for most, although legal concerns may preclude any such statement. Either way, things could get off to a bad start with Omega, the creative director of “Fight Forever,” not present on the show.
