Earlier today various disciplinary actions have been taken following the media scrum last weekend. Everyone who had been present during the altercation that has been in the news has been suspended. The only people that have yet to be disciplined are CM Punk and Ace Steel as the discipline is still in question as there is a possibility they might not be suspended. Tonight the uncertainty surrounding the World Championship and Trios Championship will be addressed by Tony Khan. Thus far I will praise Tony Khan for his handling so far of the incident, but that praise could easily dissipate depending on his decision of how to discipline the World Champion and Ace Steel.
It has since been reported that CM Punk has sustained a serious injury and will miss a prolonged period of time. Either way Punk still deserves a suspension for his part, because it will not make Tony look good if everyone else is suspended and Punk isn't disciplined just because he sustained an injury. The one thing that would be off the table in my opinion is termination due to his injury. If I was Tony I would suspend Punk until he is healthy and then decide what to do once he is 100%. As far as the AEW World Championship is concerned, we don't need another interim champion. I don't mind the intern concept, but you don't know when or if Punk will return to crown a real World Champion.
As far as the Trios Championship it is a shame that the future is in doubt for The Elite as champions considering the fact that The Elite are the first champions. Again there is no need for an interim champion here either. I would maybe hold a battle royal with various trios to set up a six man match the following week. It is unfortunate that this had to happen, but much like the World Champion should be held to a higher regard so should the EVPs.
Side note due to the fact that All Elite Wrestling just held as many tournaments as they've had this past year I think they should lighten up a little bit. I'm also a big supporter of the benefits of a battle royal and how many feuds can come out of a battle royal. It is understandable that you can't hold a battle royal for the Trios titles but you can for the World Title. If a battle royal isn't in the cards then a four way based on the rankings could also work.
