According to the man himself, CM Punk has wanted to punch one WWE star in the face for 13 years.
On the March 24th episode of WWE SmackDown, the latest installment of the Mysterio family soap opera played out in front of the world.
In the ring, Rey Mysterio took on LA Knight, but as the match progressed the action inside the ropes proved to be nothing more than a backdrop. Partway through, Dominik sautered to ringside and eventually cost his father the match.
After the bell, Dominik again tried to goad Rey into a match at WrestleMania, and once again he failed. However, the younger Mysterio was not to be denied. Intent on causing as much friction as possible, he approached his mother and sister who were sitting in the front row. Dominik insulted his dad some more, and when mother Angie went to respond, screamed at her to shut up.
This lit a fire under Rey who had been leaving the ring, he rushed to his wife’s aid, punching Dominik in the face. The soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer then accepted the match at WrestleMania.
After the show, Rey Mysterio shared a photo of the clash on Instagram writing:
“Every man had his limits… Don’t forget she’s not only your mother but my wife. See you at WrestleMania.”
The post quickly received a comment from none other than controversial AEW star CM Punk. The former World Champion came out in support of Rey, writing that he’s wanted to punch Dominik for 13 years.
“Good for you Rey. I’ve wanted to punch him for 13 years!”
WWE Has Not Contacted CM Punk
CM Punk’s comments will do little to dampen speculation around a spectacular WWE comeback. However, despite reports that a deal might not be impossible between the two parties, WWE hasn’t reached out to Punk since that drama-filled night on September 4th, 2022.
