CM Punk Reacts To The Rock Returning To WWE

CM Punk WWE Raw

CM Punk has shared a positive reaction to the WWE return of The Rock.

‘The People’s Champion’ returned to WWE television recently following his appointment to the TKO Board of Directors and is currently embroiled in a captivating WrestleMania storyline involving Roman Reigns, Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins.

CM Punk is no stranger to a main event programme with The Rock, with ‘The Great One’ having ended his 434 day reign as WWE Champion at the 2013 Royal Rumble.

The former two-time Money In The Bank winner was asked about the high-profile return of the Hollywood star during a recent interview with TNT Sports and offered an overwhelmingly positive response:

“I think it’s fantastic. Ten years ago, I was the guy that was wrestling The Rock when he came back, and now ten years later, he’s coming back, and I think the landscape has completely changed, right?

WrestleMania is two nights now. It’s even bigger. Him coming back only helps. I always say high tide raises all ships. So I’m just happy that even though I’m hurt, I’m still gonna kinda be in the mix.

My mouth still works, so I’m gonna still be able to talk some trash. I don’t know if you saw the kickoff we did in Vegas with Rock and Roman and Seth and Cody. It was a lot of fun and I hope to just continue to do that while I’m recuperating because I can always just talk trash with the best of them. It’s the best part. It’s what I do.”

CM Punk Delighted With His Own WWE Return

CM Punk only recently return to WWE himself after a decade long absence, making a shock appearance at the end of the 2023 Survivor Series Premium Live Event in his home town of Chicago.

The return came just months after his controversial departure from AEW following an altercation with Jack Perry at AEW All In, held at London’s Wembley Stadium on 27th August 2023.

‘The voice of the voiceless’ suffered a triceps injury during the 2024 Royal Rumble that will keep him out of action for a number of months, but despite this Punk has declared himself delighted at his recent return to WWE.
