All wounds heal over time, or in most cases, the tide of dissension and animosity in AEW begins to subside.
Fightful Select is reporting AEW Talent Relations team member Pat Buck has already returned from suspension, after being described as “integral” in breaking up the violent feud between Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, CM Punk and Ace Steel. Buck, along with Brandon Cutler, Christopher Daniels and Michael Nakazawa, were suspended over the incident, along with Omega and the Bucks, with various suspension lengths – along with Punk and Steele’s AEW status – unknown. The report said that Nakazawa is currently in Japan along with suspended EVP Kenny Omega. As seen in a tweet The trip was planned from former IWGP world heavyweight champion Kota Ibushi, but long before the suspension. Daniel is ready to debut For All Japan Pro Wrestling on September 18.
Controversy erupted after former AEW World Champion CM Punk indulged in an all out rant against his own company, punishing Omega and Jackson in the process. This led to a confrontation in the locker room that soon materialized, leading to a suspension. Punk, Omega, and Jackson have all vacated the titles they won at the event, with no word on when, or if, they will return to the company.
Buck previously worked for WWE as a producer, but requested his release after WrestleMania 38, citing an inconsistent schedule. He joined AEW soon after. Buck not only worked for WWE but also helped bring wrestling to Alaska with New Jersey’s WrestlePro Promotions.
