Seth Rollins and CM Punk seemed destined to headline WrestleMania, yet fate had other plans as a triceps injury sidelined Punk, leaving a void in the grand spectacle.
In an interview with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, Rollins addressed the missed opportunity for their showdown, were Rollins’ referred to CM Punk as being “fragile” and “old.”
“One of us is a fragile old man and one of us is a young stallion. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks, he’ll be back in a year or two until his next injury. I don’t know, I’d love to kick the crap out of him. I’m sure he’d love to get there and try to do something to me. It’s not going to work.”
“Am I disappointed? I’d say a little bit. Only because I thought, if we had an opportunity to do it, stomping his head into the mat would be the best at WrestleMania. It would be the best at WrestleMania, in front of the biggest audience. A little bummed by that. I feel like, he’s talking about the greatest comeback of all time, I’ll be happy to stomp out that comeback when the time comes.”
While Rollins grapples with a knee injury of his own, he remains resolute in his determination to compete at WrestleMania, ready to seize any opportunity to assert his dominance when the time arises.
