AEW star Brian Pillman Jr. was recently on Renee Dupree’s “Cafe de Rene” podcast. During it, Pillman gave his opinion on the backstage brawl at AEW All Out.
CM Punk ripped Colt Cabana, Hangman Page and AEW EVPs (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks) during the post-AEW All Out media scrum. Punk had a backstage fight with Nick and Matt Jackson after the scrum which also included Omega and Ace Steel.
Since then, Omega and The Young Bucks have been suspended and stripped of the Trios titles. Punk has been stripped of the World Heavyweight Title.
“I wasn’t there, so I couldn’t see who won the fight. I’m not going to decide whose side I’m on. Whoever won the fight, whose side I’m on. I’m not going to side with the losers, I say. Frankly, it’s beyond me. I was not there. I look up to all the guys, so I’m like, ‘Damn, I can’t believe my heroes are fighting each other.’ It is what it is. When I’m there I’m just happy to be there and try not to piss anyone off and get beaten myself. I’m sure people probably wanted to hit me too. Good thing I avoided that. They are all great guys. Everyone just loves wrestling and the different personalities. Things change. We were in Jacksonville and now we’re on our way and it’s a little bit more serious and people are starting to clash a little bit, that’s all.”
