Speaking to Covino & Rich on Fox Sports Radio, Seth Rollins said he didn’t need to repeat what he said about CM Punk when he was in San Antonio for the Royal Rumble. But Rollins admitted that it saddened him to feel that way because Punk helped him early in his career.
“Well, I don’t need to repeat what I said about Chicago Phil in an interview last week. But if you need to, I’m sure you can Google it,” Seth Rollins said.
“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,” Rollins said. “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, for the past maybe six-seven years, he’s in a different head space, and we’re not on the same page.
“To see kind of what he’s done and taken and taken, it’s always been about him, I’m not a fan. I’m just not a fan. There’s a place for him, man. He’s got a lot to give. I just wish his head was in the right spot.”
CM Punk shocked the pro wrestling world by making his return and joining AEW in 2021. Punk went on to become a two-time AEW Champion, but remains off AEW TV following the blow up at AEW’s post-All Out 2022 press scrum.
Dave Meltzer recently stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that “Punk might come back,” adding that the former World Champion “will be available to come back if they want to use him in a couple of months.”
