The Elite "haven't heard anything" from AEW regarding the ongoing investigation into their backstage altercation with CM Punk and Ace Steel at All Out. 

Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks have been suspended from the promotion since the incident. Our own Dave Meltzer addressed the situation in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter

"Regarding the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, they all hadn’t heard anything from the company at least as of a few days ago," Meltzer wrote. 

It is believed that potential legal action and another unknown hold-up are preventing things from moving forward. 

Meltzer continued, "the belief is that their situation is on hold pending potential legal action, which unless cleared up, could delay things for some time and there is also a second hold up that hasn’t been made clear."

Matt Jackson recently caused some speculation regarding the Young Bucks potentially returning to AEW in the near future. He posted a short message to Instagram Stories saying that he looked forward to seeing fans "very soon."

“Thank you so much guys for everything and the last 18 years. You guys have supported us and been so great to us, and I really can’t wait to see you guys very soon,” Jackson said.
