Roman Reigns is at the top of his game. The Big Dog has also been barking quite a bit lately. He already stated how AEW isn’t WWE’s competition while dragging their fans into things. This time, the target is CM Punk. The Universal champion went on a major rant against the Second City Saint during a recent interview.

Reigns told Complex that he would not have said no to a CM Punk return to WWE. Instead, Punk signed with AEW. Now that it’s too late to sign him, the leader of The Bloodline tore into Punk.

“If our audience wanted to see it and they were clamoring for it, couldn’t shut up about it, and all the stars aligned, as a businessman and as a performer who was trying to seek out the very best for the audience and try to captivate, I wouldn’t say no.

“But I mean, on a personal level, it doesn’t do anything for me. That’s not going to elevate me at all. He’s older now. I haven’t really seen a full match. I’ve seen a clip or two. And to me, a step or two has been lost. Then also he got his whooped in the UFC. I don’t think anybody really believes someone 200 pounds soaking wet with no explosive bone in their body could ever really do anything to me.

“I’m 6’3”, 265 pounds, a legitimate athlete who can throw some weight around and has been on the gridiron at the highest level. D1. All ACC. I probably would’ve maintained in the NFL if my health issues didn’t happen when I was 22 years old.

“So, I mean, when it comes down to it, I’ll throw him and pretty much the rest of that roster out the club no problem. They’re just little brothers, you know?”

Reigns said personally doesn’t enjoy Punk’s act. He also said that CM Punk’s failed UFC career made him less believable to fans. Roman also compared the athletic bona fides of both men. He said that he is more legitimate.

The verbal sparring between AEW and WWE continues to heat up. The comments from Reigns came right as reports surfaced that Roman doesn’t see AEW as competition for WWE.

How do you think CM Punk will respond to Roman’s harsh words? Let us know in the comments.
