CM Punk is on a mission to win the Royal Rumble this year and he will stop at nothing to make it happen. In fact, he was spotted training with several NXT stars ahead of the Rumble event.

The self-proclaimed Best in the World has only wrestled in a couple of matches with Dominik Mysterio last year, so the Royal Rumble match will be the first time he competes in a televised bout in a decade.

WWE took to their official YouTube channel and uploaded a vlog of CM Punk making his way to the Performance Center to hone his in-ring skills prior to the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event.

The Second City Saint was training with Carmelo Hayes, Bron Breakker, Trick Williams and more while explaining how he is still able to do such moves and the importance of the moves.


CM Punk also made it clear that main eventing WrestleMania 40 has always been the goal for him. He even seemingly dropped tease about AJ Lee for the Royal Rumble. We will have to wait and see how CM Punk will fare in the Royal Rumble bout tonight.
