Drew McIntyre Trolls CM Punk with Photoshopped AEW Departure Reference

One big thing: Drew McIntyre escalates feud with CM Punk

WWE star Drew McIntyre has taken his rivalry with CM Punk to social media, posting a photoshopped image mocking Punk’s controversial AEW departure.

The details:

• McIntyre shared a doctored photo of Punk from a March interview with Ariel Helwani.
• The image caption references Punk’s alleged words to AEW owner Tony Khan before his firing: “I turned to Paul Levesque, I said ‘this place is a joke, you’re a clown. I quit.'”
• McIntyre sarcastically asked, “Which sick freak made this?”


• This comes after McIntyre cost Punk a championship opportunity and later attacked him on SmackDown.
• The attack left Punk hospitalized, adding fuel to their ongoing feud.

Why it matters:

This social media jab indicates the McIntyre-Punk rivalry is heating up, potentially setting the stage for a high-profile match at an upcoming WWE event. It also demonstrates WWE’s willingness to reference real-life controversies from other promotions to build storylines.

What’s next:

A match between McIntyre and Punk seems likely, but its timing depends on Punk’s recovery from a torn triceps injury.
