Kenny Omega: No One Can Talk About AEW All Out Altercation, I Encourage People To Let It Go

Let it go.

Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks were off AEW television from AEW All Out to AEW Full Gear due to their role in an altercation with CM Punk and Ace Steel at AEW All Out. Plenty of details have been reported regarding the altercation, but Tony Khan and the involved parties have not commented on what happened. The aforementioned parties were suspended, Steel was fired, and it is unknown if Punk will return to the company.

Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Omega was asked about the incident.

“There are things no one can talk about, so I’d encourage people to let it go,” said Omega. “It doesn’t change that we want a team effort in AEW. I don’t even mean implicitly myself and my opponent. It also means the referee, the fans, the people who set up the ring, everyone–even a technical error can ruin the memory of a match. I can refer back to the exploding barbed wire death match. So I encourage people to move away from it because there is no information to be released. Though I cannot talk about it, I do want the fans to know I still want the best for pro wrestling.”

Omega continued, offering a different perspective on things following the passing of Jason David Frank, who was best known as the Green/White Ranger in Power Rangers.

"The day after the pay-per-view, I was absolutely devastated by the loss of Jason David Frank,” he said. “He’s one of my childhood heroes. That evening, there was a mass shooting at an LGBTQ club where five people died. It’s absolutely terrible. After such tragedy, it puts everything in perspective. This isn’t Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks against CM Punk. It is people trying to show off their craft. You can boo Kenny Omega, or the Young Bucks, or CM Punk, but I hope people don’t forget we’re human beings struggling to show our art.”

Omega and the Bucks returned at AEW Full gear to challenge Death Triangle (PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo, & Rey Fenix) for the AEW Trios Championships, but came up short in their efforts. The two teams will continue their battles in a best-of-seven series.

In the week leading up to AEW Full Gear, Tony Khan said he had nothing but positive things to say about Punk's on-screen contributions. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
