At a press event prior to the Royal Rumble for the upcoming edition of WWE 2K23Seth Rollins made some candid remarks about the possibility of CM Punk returning to the company he walked out on back in 2014.
Since Rollins was so much into gossip and over-the-top character when he called Punk an “idiot” he hoped would “get away from me forever,” some wondered if he was working on the media and fans with his answer.
on me His modern edition hall of fame PodcastBooker T weight. According to your old punk WWE behind the scenes Co-host, Seth was not only honest, but speaking on behalf of others like Book:
“It was 100% shooting. I’m glad I didn’t have to say it. I’m glad people can’t look at me now and act like I’m a hater. I keep my mouth shut, because my mom always tells me if you don’t have something good to say about someone, Don’t say anything at all.
“So I’ve always tried to put myself in that situation, but you hear other people who’ve been around at work, feel and talk the same way about Phil Brooks, and it’s because of being around him. You know, nothing personal…nothing that makes him something he’s not or any Something like that, but when you’re around people, you kind of like to get a feel for what it’s about.”
A listener asked if Rollins’ comments could be set up for a match with Punk down the line, and the Hall of Famer quickly shut that down, too:
No. No, this isn’t a show guys. This isn’t a show, it’s a guy that shows how you really feel. People stop thinking everything is business. If I say something so negative that someone’s a “cancer in the locker room,” I I don’t play, ok? That’s not the stuff you’re fidgeting with… That’s not an angle, ok? That’s just not. I know a lot of people who aren’t in show business who want to think that. But sometimes it’s real. It’s talk. TRUE “.
Now Book is known to work great for work, but there’s a difference between that and the point it makes here. So if nothing else, it looks like we’ve identified at least two of those voices in WWE who don’t want to hear the “cult of personality” on raw or SmackDown repeatedly.
