Wrestling Inc. learned that Punk felt threatened and acted in a legal manner under Illinois’ Castle Doctrine laws, which authorize the use of force to defend a person in their dwelling. Currently, there is no litigation against Punk on behalf of anyone involved. It is also reported to us that Steel’s wife, Lucy, was in the room during the incident, but was not interviewed as part of the internal investigation into the matter.
Finally, we were informed that, following comments from “Hangman” Adam Page on a May episode of “AEW Dynamite” alluding to behind-the-scenes concerns about Punk, there was mistrust at Punk’s ending before his AEW World Championship match with Page at Double or Nothing 2022, and that Punk feared the pre-determined match would turn into an actual physical fight.
