After the backstage fight between CM Punk and the Young Bucks at All Out, the AEW World Championship and Trios titles were vacated.
After AEW All Out there was a backstage fight involving CM Punk, the Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson), Kenny Omega and backstage producer Ace Steel after a tense press conference. Earlier in the day, Omega, the Young Bucks and four others involved in the fight were suspended, with Punk and Steel’s status yet to be determined. Ahead of the show, AEW CEO Tony Khan said he would address the situations involving the AEW World Championship and World Trios titles, all held by Punk, Omega and the Young Bucks.
As AEW Dynamite began, Khan announced that the World Championship and Trios titles were officially vacated. Khan did not address the fight, nor did he mention Punk, Omega and the Young Bucks.
