Seth Rollins: Match With CM Punk Is Bigger Than Any One Event, Including WrestleMania

Seth Rollins might believe a match with CM Punk has passed, but he's still getting asked questions about CM Punk. Rollins famously called out Punk when it was announced Punk would be joining WWE Backstage in November. Since then, the two have traded shots on show, but Punk has consistently said he is not actively pursuing a return to the ring.

Speaking to Chron, Rollins was asked about a potential match with Punk and whether it would have to take place at WrestleMania.

“It would not have to be a WrestleMania and as far as wanting to match? Yes, absolutely with CM Punk. If he’s going to come back and get into the ring, which is not something that he has been seemingly interested in since he returned — he seems to be very comfortable sitting behind the desk and talking about wrestling, being a fan again and then by all means, he should go ahead and do that. But if he wants to get back into the ring and show that he’s more than just a critic, and that he can actually back up what he is saying then I would love to be the guy to get in there and have the match and I think WrestleMania would be the proper stage for it, but I don’t think it has to happen at WrestleMania. I think that match is bigger than any one event and so if he were ever to come back, we could do it anytime, anyplace and it would sell out wherever," said Rollins.

Rollins currently one-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions alongside Buddy Murphy. Punk continues to make special appearances on WWE Backstage. He last appeared on the show last Tuesday. His next appearance has not been confirmed.
