WWE’s Drew McIntyre Throws Shade at CM Punk: A Cheeky Reference to AEW’s Jack Perry Incident


  • CM Punk has amassed quite a list of adversaries throughout his career, including a recent altercation involving Jack Perry and real glass in AEW.
  • Drew McIntyre, set to challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, doesn’t hold back on his disdain for CM Punk, hinting at a long-awaited showdown.
  • Despite an injury that sidelined Punk for WrestleMania 40, a tense confrontation is brewing for WWE Raw in Punk’s hometown of Chicago.

The Ongoing Saga Between Drew McIntyre and CM Punk

In the world of professional wrestling, where towering egos and titanic personalities clash, few rivalries have drawn as much intrigue as the smoldering feud between Drew McIntyre and CM Punk. Speaking with The Ringer, McIntyre didn’t mince words when reflecting on Punk’s tumultuous journey back into the spotlight, especially touching on Punk’s infamous encounter with Jack Perry, famously involving “real glass,” and Punk’s contentious departure from AEW.

McIntyre’s Bold Words

“He came crawling back to sports entertainment, good for him. Brought a few eyeballs, got a big payday, I get all that stuff,” McIntyre expressed, a clear dig at Punk’s return to WWE. “If you get put in a situation with me, I’m going to verbally tear you apart and physically tear you apart. I want that match with him, but I don’t believe he’ll be in a physical condition to wrestle Drew McIntyre. He’s literally made of glass, real glass, and I’ll break him.”

CM Punk, known for his ‘Straight Edge’ persona and razor-sharp tongue, has yet to respond directly to McIntyre’s barbs. However, the stage is set for a confrontation that could ignite the WWE universe with explosive repercussions.

A History of Disdain

Despite Drew McIntyre putting CM Punk on the sidelines with a devastating FutureShock DDT at the Royal Rumble—resulting in Punk tearing his triceps—the anticipation for a face-to-face showdown has only intensified. With Punk’s return to WWE in November 2023, fans were eager for a clash at WrestleMania 40. Yet, luck would have it; their paths are destined to cross sooner than later.

With WWE Raw returning to Chicago, CM Punk’s stomping grounds, for the first time since his WWE comeback, the air is thick with anticipation. Punk, sidelined for WrestleMania but not silent, is expected to confront McIntyre, offering fans a glimpse into what could become one of the most talked-about feuds of the year.
