AEW to hold talent meeting at Dynamite

The meeting is expected to address reports of "unrest" in the locker room.

AEW will be holding a mandatory talent meeting ahead of Dynamite. 

As first reported by Fightful Select, AEW talent expect the meeting to address "rumors of unrest, contract inquiries, and personal issues." It is also expected that talent leaking information to media outlets will be covered as well. Tony Khan will be present but few other details are available. 

In last Friday's edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote that currently "there is a ton of backstage drama" in AEW at the moment "involving many of the top guys that has gotten much worse in recent weeks" 

It has also been reported that CM Punk went off-script on last Wednesday's Dynamite when he called out Hangman Page in the night's opening segment. Bryan Alvarez addressed this last week on Wrestling Observer Radio.

"Whatever they are going to do next week with the title match....Punk's promo has absolutely zero, zilch to do with whatever they are doing at the PPV," Alvarez said. "That was not supposed to happen. Punk went into business for himself and then moved on."

AEW is in Cleveland, Ohio tonight and is taping Dynamite and Rampage from the Wolstein Center.
