Vince McMahon is a gigantic name in the world of wrestling. His larger-than-life personality has been feared by many, and many have even drawn inspiration from it. However, the wrestling kingpin has often been known for his temper. He has many times unleashed on several Superstars; now it seems McMahon was once furious with Seth Rollins due to something that involved CM Punk.
Once, while Seth Rollins was performing in Chicago, a CM Punk chant broke out. It is an obvious fact, keeping in mind that Punk hails from Chicago. However, what Rollins did was address the chant and take a shot at Punk. This wasn’t quite well received by the audience. In fact, Vince McMahon himself was angry with The Visionary.
What made McMahon angry is the fact that Rollins addressing the chants potentially hinted at a matchup between him and Punk. However, nothing as such was planned at that time, the Cult of Personality was a WWE Backstage analyst.
Thus, Rollins had to endure McMahon’s wrath for his comments. Meanwhile, things have changed a lot since then. Seth Rollins is currently the World Heavyweight Champion in WWE, while CM Punk is currently a free agent. However, it can be understood that Rollins didn’t have very pleasant feelings for Punk.
Seth Rollins once called CM Punk a “jerk”
CM Punk was previously a part of the AEW; however, he recently faced termination from the company due to a backstage altercation. With that, several speculations have been going on regarding his possible WWE venture. While many might be happy to see the former WWE superstar make his return to the company, Seth Rollins might not be among them.
Previously, Seth Rollins was questioned about Punk’s possible return to the Stamford-based promotion. The World Heavyweight Champion responded by calling Punk a “jerk“. He also stated that he doesn’t like the former AEW star and said that he doesn’t want Punk to come back. Rollins even asked Punk to do something else.
The Visionary said, “Philly Phil, stay away. Stay away, you cancer, get away from me forever. I don’t like Phil. I don’t like Phil, he’s a jerk. Did we just figure that out? Everybody in the room is like, ‘did he say that?’ Yeah, he’s a jerk. Come on. We figured it out over there, we knew it over here. I don’t want him back. Go do something else. Bye bye. See you later”.
Thus, Rollins seems to dislike Phillip Jack Brooks, who is popularly known as CM Punk, since he himself stated that he doesn’t like him. However, now it is to be seen what lies ahead for Punk in the upcoming days.
Recently, WWE CEO Nick Khan heaped praise on Punk, and Shawn Michaels also showed his interest in signing the former WWE Superstar to NXT. Thus, it might not be too late before the former AEW star returns to the Triple H-led promotion. If that happens, fans would be thrilled to witness a match between Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins and CM Punk.
