WWE News: This piece of WWE news is regarding Roman Reigns. The Universal Champion is known for being a narcissist and big-mouth comments. Recently he appeared on Ariel Helwani’s BT Sports to promote Saturday’s Biggest Event of the Summer, i.e. WWE Summerslam, where he took a shot at the former World Champion and the ‘Voice of the Voiceless’ CM Punk.
Punk is rumored to make his much-awaited return to pro-wrestling after seven long years with AEW. After parting ways with WWE in 2014, CM Punk had two fights on UFC but never returned to pro-wrestling. However, there have been rumors that Punk might return to the squared circle again under a new promotion AEW this Friday night during Rampage from the United Center in Chicago.
WWE News: Roman Reigns takes a shot at CM Punk
While speaking with BT Sports, Helwani brought up the question that how CM Punk and other people have mentioned the fact about part-time Superstars making a return to WWE and taking the spotlight. He asked Roman to give his views on this. The Tribal Chief had a diplomatic answer to this question by talking about how beneficial it is for him to main event Summerslam with a legendary figure like John Cena, but he also took a shot at CM Punk by saying how over he was in WWE. Here’s what Roman said,
“I can see it from both perspectives. But I think you said it before, that ‘high tide raises all the boats’ and everybody benefits. So I do think there’s that strange threshold, but I think those statements are coming from bitter people who possibly thought they were better than they really were. When it comes down to it, CM Punk was not as good or as over as a John Cena, wasn’t as good or as over or moved the needle-like The Rock. It just was what it was.

Pointing towards CM Punk’s run in WWE, Roman Reigns added, “But I think other people who think they should have more or be more and aren’t willing to actually do it, they are going to have a different explanation than what I just did.”
