Tony Khan Recalls His Crossing With Chicago After Firing CM Punk From AEW

10 months ago By Sports Desk

The world of professional wrestling received a big shake several days ago when All Elite Wrestling reported the dismissal of CM Punk. A committee outside the company extended the decision after completing the investigation into the altercation between The Best in the World and Jack Perry.

As we already know, the decision came on an important weekend for AEW inside Chicago, CM Punk’s hometown. The same night that this dismissal was announced, Tony Khan decided to go out in front of the United Center public and clarify any situation related to the final decision that involved the local competitor.

Despite again refusing to provide comments on CM Punk’s departure, the AEW president reacted to his decision to go out before the Chicago public to make known the reasons for the dismissal: “Chicago is a home for my family,” he said. Tony to Insider. “I’ve been seeing shows at the United Center since the venue opened when I was 11 years old. My family and many friends were there that night. It meant a lot to me to go out and talk to the fans, to ensure a great show.”

Tony Khan also explained why he spoke to the public from the entrance of the ramp, and not from the ring. ” You can’t see everyone’s face from the centre of the ring. When you get on the mat, you’re forced to choose one side of the crowd to talk face to face. I wanted to see everyone. I’m not a wrestler nor do I need to get into a ring. That’s why I decided to have a quiet talk with the public. That’s why I also decided to bring a chair with me.”

Finally, the president of AEW recalled the moments after his speech. “When I finished speaking and went backstage, the first person I saw was Ricky Steamboat. He told me that I did great and that I managed to change the audience’s reaction no matter how difficult it seemed at the time. I felt in debt to the fans and fighters for everything that happened, and that’s why I went out to talk to all of them.”
