Pro wrestling fans are buzzing after CM Punk’s tongue-in-cheek response to Seth Rollins’ explosive reaction during Punk’s surprise WWE return at Survivor Series 2023.
Chicago’s Allstate Arena came unglued as CM Punk made his shocking return to a WWE ring, and World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, who was in attendance, didn’t hide his intense emotions. Fans captured Rollins shouting outbursts and delivering a less than friendly hand gesture directed towards “The Best in the World.” Rollins’ display of disdain didn’t seem off the cuff. Reports suggest his reaction was part of a larger narrative, deliberately stoking the flames of a burgeoning rivalry between himself and Punk.
The following evening on Monday Night Raw, Punk offered a thinly-veiled nod to Rollins during his promo, but that was only the start. Seizing the moment to further engage with the drama, Punk took to social media to share a humorous depiction of the Survivor Series incident. On his Instagram story, Punk posted a cartoon illustration of himself waving to Randy Orton, who was seated inside the ring, while a clearly agitated animated Rollins was featured prominently in the scene.
Captioned with “This is fantastic,” Punk’s post suggests he’s enjoying the storyline as much as the fans are. His playful jab at Rollins underscores the veteran superstar’s knack for blending reality with wrestling’s theatrics, a skill that has kept audiences hooked throughout his career.
As the WWE Universe eagerly anticipates the next chapter in this unfolding saga, sources confirm that WWE brass is already mapping out a high-profile feud between Punk and Rollins. It seems that Rollins’ explosive reaction may very well have been the initial salvo in what could become one of the year’s most engaging storylines.
