CM Punk: Maybe Seth Rollins Is Jealous; When You Have Differences, You Get To Settle Them In The Ring

CM Punk gives his thoughts on Seth Rollins.

When CM Punk announced he was going to sign with WWE Raw on the December 11 episode of Raw, he was immediately confronted by Seth Rollins. Rollins said that WWE was not Punk's home and that he spent a decade trying to tear the company down. Rollins said he looked forward to wrestling circles around Punk and proving he was the best in the world.

Punk stated he was entering the Royal Rumble, and that if he won, maybe he would challenge Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Appearing on WWE Preview Special, Punk was asked about Seth today compared to ten year ago when they shared the ring at Royal Rumble 2014.

"I viewed Seth as somebody who was following my footsteps. I think there are a lot of people who are in WWE now who, for better or for worse, looked up to a guy like me. I always like to thank the legends that helped paved the way for the roads that I travel now. Guys like Terry Funk, Eddie Guerrero, Bret Hart, Tracy Smothers, Chris Candido. There are a litany of guys that I always feel, I wouldn't have gotten the opportunities that I got if it weren't for them. I guess I'm in a position where, it feels maybe strange, me vocalizing it, but Seth is a guy, at least I definitely thought it ten years ago. He's a dude that I don't think would have gotten the opportunities that he's gotten if it wasn't for me. That might hurt some people's feelings, but facts are facts, they don't care about your feelings," he said.

Punk was then asked about Rollins' feelings towards him.

"What Seth honestly feels about me is none of my business, that's how I approach it. Maybe he's jealous, maybe he's envious, it's not for me to decide and figure out. Luckily, there is a ring. A lot of times, when you have differences with somebody, you get to settle it in the ring. The Rumble is in my immediate future. If Seth is still the champion when the dust clears, maybe we can talk about it then and settle it in the ring," he said.

Rollins remains the WWE World Heavyweight Champion after successfully defending the title against Drew McIntyre on Monday's WWE Raw Day One.

Punk is set to appear on the January 8 episode of WWE Raw.
