Former WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins has sent out a word from Chicago’s radio stations that he wants to face CM Punk at WrestleMania 36(2020).

Seth Rollins sat down with Kevin Kellam at 101WKQX in Chicago to hype the Survivor Series and the four-day series of events in the city. With the city also being the hometown for CM Punk, the conversation turned towards Punk joining WWE Backstage and his comments/advice on Rollins. Rollins came out with a fired-up response during the discussion.

First of all, he pointed out that while WWE Backstage might not be WWE owned show, but that show would not have existed if not for WWE. Bringing out Punk’s failed stint in MMA, he said Punk can run his mouth, but he will defend WWE since it is his family and it has provided him a living.

Here’s someone who has been in the doldrums the last few years because he got his butt kicked in the octagon so bad he doesn’t want to show his face anywhere. Now he shows back up on a WWE show. It’s called WWE Backstage – you can say it’s an FS1 show all you want, which it is, and you might be paid by FOX, but that show doesn’t exist without our company. The company that you left five years ago.
Play it however you want, that’s what Punk always does, but at the end of the day if he wants to come on a show and run his mouth about me and a company he has had no part of for the last five years, then of course I’m going to stand up for it. This is a place that has given me everything that I have ever wanted in my life, and not only for me, but it’s provided me a living for my family and for people that I love, that I care about.

Rollins did not stop at that and mentioned how he asked Punk to come and fight him. He also mentioned that he wants to pick a fight with him so that they can have a match at WrestleMania Main Event.

“I want to make some money, so if CM Punk wants to talk all the smack in the world, I’ve invited him to come to my ring, to my domain on live television, where you can’t hide behind anything,” said Rollins. “Let’s do this thing, man. Let’s fight it out like men.”

“Bottom line is, whenever, wherever he wants to do the thing – if he wants to man up and do it, I’m there. For me, the only place the match happens is WrestleMania in the main event. That’s the only reason I’m picking a fight with him.”

Now, only time can tell whether or not Seth Rollins and CM Punk will face off at WrestleMania 36. But this spat over WWE Backstage, social media and through other mediums, is fun to follow.
