This week, we told you about a physical altercation of Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks against CM Punk and producer Ace Steel, a lot of news came out about it. Also involving numerous suspensions, without forgetting that we learned that CM Punk was once again injured just before the broadcast of Dynamite on September 7th.
During the September 7 broadcast of Dynamite, Tony Khan opened the show to talk about the future of the AEW World Championship and Trios titles as their holders are either suspended or suspended and injured in Punk’s case. Khan announced that these titles are now vacant.

Adam Page, Bryan Danielson, Sammy Guevara and Darby Allin will face each other in the first round of the tournament, while Chris Jericho and Jon Moxley advance directly to the semi-finals.
