An intense promo segment was done on Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite that was designed to fire up CM Punk and get him to challenge AEW World Champion Jon Moxley at Sunday’s All Out pay-per-view event.
While speaking, the AEW producer dropped an F-bomb and then slapped Punk before continuing.
Pwinsider reports Steel had to pay a fine for the language. It was said that wrestlers were told not to swear on either Dynamite or Rampage this week, given the attention for the All Out pay-per-view event.
The communication to talent said Steel took responsibility for the mistake upon going backstage. He agreed to a fine that will be donated to a charity and was praised for how he handled it after the fact.
