AEW World Championship vacated, members suspended after brawl

AEW has suspended CM Punk and The Elite for a backstage brawl during the All Out PPV.

Both have been stripped of their AEW World Championship and AEW World Trios Championship by CEO Tony Khan.

During the All Out media scrum, Punk made harsh remarks against fellow AEW superstars.

It resulted in an unprecedented real-life backstage brawl between the Punk and Elite.

Punk also suffered a severe injury at All Out during the fight against Jon Moxley.

Even though the brawl took place, Punk would still have vacated the title due to his injury.

A new champion will be chosen during the AEW Grand Slam Tournament of Champions on September 21.

It is not known when Punk and The Elite's suspension will be lifted.
