Ace Steel is no longer with All Elite Wrestling.
Following the All Out 2022 brawl with The Elite, Ace Steel and CM Punk have been linked regarding Punk’s return to AEW, as the two remain close friends.
Punk and AEW were involved in a misunderstanding surrounding bringing back Steel before Punk’s AEW comeback for the debut episode of Collision on June 17th, resulting in Punk being removed from the AEW Collision announcement.
Fans may recall Steel being released after the All Out 2023 incident and then quietly being hired back before Punk returned. All parties involved eventually reached an agreement. Steel had been working remotely rather than at Collision shows to avoid problems with talent.
Pwinsider is reporting that Steel was released by AEW earlier today.
