A new update has emerged on the situation with CM Punk and AEW after the announcement from Tony Khan on last night’s Dynamite.

That announcement was the fact that the debut episode of Collision will indeed be taking place at the United Center in Chicago on June 17, which all but confirms Punk will be appearing, although Punk himself wasn’t announced by name.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer followed up with what he’s heard on how the situation resolved itself after the issues last week.
He said:

“There were a couple of things done. There was some legal stuff that was taken care of. There were NDAs involved in this.
“I think the key stuff is AEW was protected as far as him showing up for all the dates.
“The decision is, as far as we know, that Ace Steel will be working remotely, he will not be an agent going to the Collision shows, which was what the big thing that happened last Tuesday was, so that was how that was settled.”

The first part of that looks to align with what Fightful Select previously reported, which was:
Regarding rumors that Punk was served with legal papers, we’ve been told that some documents were sent to Punk to be signed over the last week. We haven’t been given indication they were legal threats but told they covered speaking about certain subjects, disparagement clauses, and ensuring he appears at scheduled television dates, largely to protect AEW in several situations. 
We’ll keep you updated with any further developments.
