It looks like tonight's episode of Smackdown will be a tribute to Bray Wyatt.

It’s always something with this guy.

The fallout from CM Punk and Jack Perry's altercation at AEW All In continues to snowball, with a new report stating that the former FTW Champion wasn't the only target of Punk's ire.

According to PWTorch, Punk "chewed out" AEW President Tony Khan in a confrontation that is being described as "heated" and "intense," both in the gorilla position backstage and then later in Punk's locker room. The report indicates this is when Punk threatened to quit AEW, which had been previously reported, putting his opening match with Samoa Joe in jeopardy just moments before the main card of the historic event went on the air. Punk and Khan were said to have had a lengthy period without communication following the match, which was characterized as unusual, as they'd be in contact via text shortly after past incidents. PWTorch was unable to confirm if Khan and Punk had spoken since the incident, noting a comment from Haus of Wrestling's Nick Hausman that Punk had been informed of his suspension, but likely not from Khan.

When will this company have the leadership to handle situations like this?

Great question. I don't understand the handling of this at all.

They should listen to me. :D

Any predictions on tonight's Payback?
Not really. I think it is pretty predictable.

However, it will be a surprise and interesting that Priest cash in on the tag titles after losing the original tag match and they lose again and that cause one of them to be out.

Good story from Hogan on Joe Rogan's Show about his time in Rocky III.

Rest of interview pretty good too. Always enjoy when Rogan brings on pro wrestlers. I liked his Undertaker interview too.

Had to happen - all the guy brought was drama and nonsense behind the scenes. They have their biggest day as a company, and his inability to not control himself overshadowed the whole day. He should have never been brought back after the blatant insubordination in front of his boss a year ago at the press scrum. This will hurt AEW short term, but for the long term well being of the company, he needed to go. Now, if someone could get Khan to move out of creative.....

Khan move out of creative? Never happen. He's just a younger version of Vince.

AEW is freaking out over fights. WWE/ NWA have many. Bill Watts would have the wrestlers duke it out and be over it. Dan Spivey vs Adrian Adonis,The Skyscrapers vs Jeff Blackwell,Tony Atlas vs Paul Orndorf.Mario Galento vs Jerry Jarrett,Arn Anderson vs Sid Vicious,Booker T vs Batista,etc......AEW needs to let it pass. CM Punk is a good money draw for them.
