Seth Rollins sustained a knee injury during his title defense against Jinder Mahal on RAW but aims to recover in time for WrestleMania 40. Meanwhile, CM Punk is sidelined with a tricep injury that required surgery. The former AEW star’s injury happened in Royal Rumble 2024. During a conversation with Denise Salcedo at the WrestleMania 40 Kickoff Press Event, Seth Rollins made a playful remark about CM Punk, expressing his eagerness for their potential match. He said, “I mean look one of us is a fragile old man and one of us is a young stallion so I’ll be back in a couple of weeks.
He’ll be back in a year or two till his next injury, I don’t know. I’d love to kick the crap out of him, I’m sure he’d love to get in there and try to do something to me but it’s not going to work.”
Rollins humorously referred to Punk as a weakling compared to himself as a “young stallion.” Nevertheless, he didn’t shoot down the idea of continuing the feud once the Second City Saint returns to fitness later this year.

Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins further went on to say in the interview talking about he wants to hurt CM Punk. Talking to Salcedo, he said, “So am I disappointed? I’d say a little bit only because I really thought if we had an opportunity to do it, stomping his head into the mat would be the best at WrestleMania. Like, would be the best at WrestleMania in front of the biggest audience so little bummed by that.”

He also stated, “But I feel like he’s talking about the greatest comeback of all time, I’ll be happy to stomp out that comeback when the time comes.” It seems like Rollins has his mind set to face Punk whenever he gets back.
The Visionary has been unhappy since CM Punk’s return to WWE last year at Survivor Series. Fans did celebrate ‘The Best In The World’s’ comeback in Chicago, but the World Heavyweight champion was not happy.
