Wednesday’s Dynamite featured a tease with The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, an indcation that they could be returning to the company soon.
Following the opening match, a video was shown of video clips and sound bites showcasing big moments from The Bucks and Omega’s careers. However, each time clips were shown, the video would pause and The Elite were seen vanishing from the still frame. The final image shown was the AEW logo disappearing.
This was the first time The Elite were specifically mentioned on AEW television since the media scrum following All Out on September 5, where The Elite were involved in an altercation between themselves and CM Punk and Ace Steel. It was reported last week that Steel had been released from the company as a result of AEW’s ongoing investigation into the altercation.
Wrestling Inc reported Wednesday afternoon that CM Punk’s camp had responded to a report from Fightful that The Elite were returning to AEW “imminently”. The report said that Punk has not been contacted by AEW since the fight was asked to keep quiet, which he said he agreed to do so. It was said that from Punk’s perspective, the comments from the scrum did not seem like a big deal, but the situation escalated when Punk’s locker room door was kicked in, injuring Punk’s dog Larry in the process. Punk was informed at a vet appointment days later that two of Larry’s teeth had been knocked out as a result.
The report also said that Punk felt threatened “in a legal way” under the state of Illinois’ Castle Doctrine Laws, which allows the use of force in defense of a person in their dwelling. However, there is no current litigation against Punk or anyone involved in the altercation.
