Vince McMahon has dedicated almost his entire life to the world of professional wrestling. During the course of his stay, he has been involved with almost every single star in the division, both on good as well as bad terms. Looking at the rivalries that he has had with WWE stars, one of the most prominent was with the Cookie Master, CM Punk.
The rivalry between the two extended beyond the ring and was the talk of everyone’s mouth. However, Vince McMahon once expressed his desire to sort out the differences with CM Punk. He, too, made a public apology to Punk while speaking to Stone Cold Steve Austin.
CM Punk is well known for his trash talk. Referencing this, Vince said, “I think there are a lot of things he may say that he may regret someday, in terms of looking back at it.” Despite all the pain that the two have showered on each other, Vince hopes to get back on good terms with him.
CM Punk recently worked with AEW before being fired from the division. This has sparked a wave about his possibility of joining the Stamford-based promotion. His return to the division would also reignite his storylines with all his past rivals. It would be nothing but a bag full of enthrallment for the WWE Universe.
What hampered Vince McMahon and CM Punk’s relationship?
Looking back at the history of WWE, CM Punk rose to prominence as one of the greatest villains. His trash talk had no bounds and he often went ahead to diss the company he had been working for. This didn’t go well with Vince McMahon. Punk also felt that his talent was being restricted and that he was being stopped from ruling the division.

Securing a spot at WrestleMania’s main event proved to be an icebreaker for the two. By now, Vince McMahon had enough of Punk’s tantrums and he ended his contract with WWE. The papers were sent to Punk on his wedding day, leaving him in deep agony for the company.
However, looking back at it, Vince regrets doing that. “Punk got his severance papers on the day he got married, and that was coincidence. So I want to personally apologise for that,” he told Stone Cold. The pain that WWE inflicted upon Punk was quite disastrous, and it is obvious that Punk would never forget it. Today, he may sort out the differences with McMahon, but there will always be a blemish in their relationship.
