Wrestling Inc. Has been told that Punk felt threatened and reacted in a legal way under Illinois ‘Castle Doctrine laws, which allow for the use of force in defense of a person in their dwelling. At this time, there is no litigation against Punk on behalf of anyone involved. It was also relayed to us that Steel’s wife, Lucy, was in the room during the incident, but she has not been interviewed as part of the internal investigation into the matter.
Finally, we were informed that, following “Hangman” Adam Page’s comments on a May episode of “AEW Dynamite” alluding to backstage concerns about Punk, there was distrust on Punk’s end going into his AEW World Championship match with Page at Double or Nothing 2022 , and that Punk was concerned that the pre-determined match would break down into a real physical fight.
