The WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins has reflected on a potential showdown with CM Punk at WrestleMania. Punk returned to the company at WWE Survivor Series 2023, marking his first appearance in nine years. Seth Rollins appeared to be the most displeased by Punk’s return.

The tension between Rollins and Punk escalated when they confronted each other on an episode of RAW in December. This heated confrontation led many to believe that WWE was heading towards a scenario where CM Punk would challenge Seth Rollins for the title at WrestleMania 40. However, these plans did not materialize because Punk suffered an injury at the Royal Rumble. This injury sidelined him from performing at this year’s WrestleMania.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Seth Rollins discussed the potential of facing CM Punk at WrestleMania 40 if he hadn’t been injured. He stated, “A match against Punk, that was never on my radar. I believed I would never see that guy again. I thought that until I saw him at Survivor Series.”
