The statement said an AEW Discipline Committee met together. And then met with legal counsel before making the announcement to fire Punk. 

“Phil played an important role within AEW and I thank him for his contributions,” Khan said in a statement. “The termination of his AEW contracts with cause is ultimately my decision and mine alone. Of course, I wish I didn’t have to share this news, which may come as a disappointment to many of our fans.  Nevertheless, I am making the decision in the best interests of the many amazing people who make AEW possible every week – our talent, staff, venue operators, and many others whose efforts are unsung but essential to bringing our fans great shows on television and at arenas and stadiums throughout the world.”

Pink allegedly had an altercation with Jungle Boy at Wembley Stadium. He allegedly had other incidents with Miro, Jeff Hardy, and Khan. 

He had returned to the company in June when AEW Collision began airing on TV. He had not worked for the company for months after an incident last year with The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson). Other people were in this altercation, as well.
