Seth Rollins sparked chaos on social media in the lead-up to the Royal Rumble when he decided to let the world know how he feels about CM Punk.
When asked about speculation that Punk could make a stunning return to WWE, Rollins told him to stay away, referring to him as a “cancer.” He added that he’s a “jerk,” joking about how long it had taken for everyone to realise.
CM Punk hasn’t appeared in AEW since September when he was involved in a backstage brawl with The Elite following All Out. Earlier in the night Punk had won the World Championship for a second time but suffered a serious triceps injury in the process which required surgery.
Seth Rollins Comments On “Selfish” CM Punk
Speaking in a new interview with Covino & Rich, Rollins again addressed Punk, or as he likes to call him, “Chicago Phil.” The WWE star said that Punk was selfish, although it pains him to speak about the ‘Best in the World’ as he had been an important part of his career previously.
“Well, I don’t need to repeat what I said about Chicago Phil in an interview last week. If you need to, I’m sure you can Google it. Look, the bottom line is that it’s the same thing as Logan Paul. Punk and Paul are two different personalities, but they’re both as selfish as it comes. If you’re not going to help, I don’t want you to be part of our industry. I don’t want you to be part of our company, and that’s all that there is to that.
Here’s the thing, I will say one thing about Punk, I’ll end it on a positive note with him. That guy has given my career so much that it pains me to have to say bad things about him because he helped me out. He really did. He’s been a good guy to me for a lot of my career, but for whatever reason, the past maybe six, seven years, he’s in a different headspace and we’re not on the same page. To see what he’s kind of done, taken and taken, it’s always been about him. I’m not a fan,”
It has been reported that CM Punk will soon be available for AEW should the company choose to use him. However, there has been no confirmation that a return is on the cards.
