On this week’s issue of AEW Dynamite, Elite were officially referenced for the first time since their behind-the-scenes clash with CM Punk’s All Out post.
Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks have been absent since AEW For many weeks. Following Punk’s swearing at the All Out press conference, the former AEW World Champion, along with the former World Trios Champion, were removed from TV. Four men are also said to have been suspended. However, there is no mention of suspensions or stars that have been made in the company’s program
During Death Triangle’s six-man tag team match with Best Friends, Tony Schiavone mentioned The Elite vacating Trios Titles after All Out in the commentary.
Omega and The Bucks took the title at All Out by defeating The Dark Order. In doing so, they became the first champions, but their title reign abruptly ended the following Wednesday on Dynamite.
Similarly, Punk was also forced to leave the AEW World Championship. He is said to have picked up the injury during the match against Jon Moxley at the All Out.
Soon after, the PAC trio, Rey Fenix and Penta took the vacant title by beating The Best Friends. At the Dynamite field this week, they also won the rematch.
Now it remains to be seen when Omega, Matt and Nick Jackson will return to TV. It will also be interesting to see if AEW tries to build a feud between the former and the defending champions.
