Obviously there have been endless emails on Punk, but curious your thoughts on where things go with the Elite at this point. Tony held off on the trios titles for Kenny to come back and now that's all been ruined. I believe Kenny's deal is up with Aew within a year unless Tony takes on time for injury. I think Bucks got extended due to TK having options but no one knows for how long. Do you think the way things have played out they will feel differently about staying, especially if they lose their EVP titles?
Good riddance to Punk if this is it, but it's crazy to imagine AEW without the Elite. I have to think it was hard for them to watch that scrum and see Tony not only stay quiet, but smirk at some of Punks comments. You would of thought he would of stuck up for them or just ended things before it escalated to where it went. Seeing that they have all mentioned having positive dealings with HHH in the past that if they aren't gonna be EVPs than one run in WWE might be appealing to them. AEW doesn't happen without The Elite but Tony sure didn't show that appreciation during the scrum Sunday. And wrestlers are known to have pretty delicate egos, which is how we got to this point.
I mean, let's face it, we've gone long periods of time without Kenny and Bucks on screen and the company has been fine. Tony at the very least has a big enough toolbox to play with that it isn't like 2019 where he has to lean on the same group of people every week. It would hurt to lose them, but the tag division is still insanely stacked and life would go on.
