Some news is expected to drop in the coming days on the investigation of the fight that broke out between CM Punk's camp and The Elite after AEW All Out and there's been a lot of talk about who was right and wrong in the situation. 

There are some Punk fans who have defended his actions at the media scrum but, per Wade Keller, there are more people who he has spoken to who have defended The Young Bucks over CM Punk.

During a recent audio show, Wade Keller said that Matt and Nick Jackson are generally seen as good guys behind the scenes and the feeling among those he spoke to is that they did not deserve to be called out in the manner CM Punk did during the media scrum.

"The Bucks are not seen as abrasive personalities," Keller said. "Passive aggressive, yes there's some aspects of that...They're not seen as a**holes. People who don't like Punk have more negative things to say than people who don't like the Bucks have to say about them in terms of their characterization."

Keller continued, "The Bucks might rub people the wrong way or not be their type of people or whatever but they're not jerks and that's kind of part of the dynamic here. I think some people looked at Punk here and said, 'you might not like that they are not taking your advice [or] you might think oh, that comment didn't need to be made''s hard for people to imagine Matt and Nick deserving that kind of call out publicly in a context that should have been about celebrating a World Title win and a really good pay-per-view."

The Bucks, Kenny Omega, Ace Steel, and Punk remain suspended until the investigation is concluded.
