The Rock made headlines after Cody Rhodes temporarily granted him his spot at WrestleMania 40, but things changed after the WrestleMania press conference last week. CM Punk has been keeping tabs on everything The Rock has been doing since his return and Punk has finally commented on The Great One’s impact on WWE after his comeback.

In case you didn’t know, The Rock challenged CM Punk for the WWE Championship at the 2013 Royal Rumble. The Rock emerged victorious, capturing the title and successfully defending it against Punk in his first title defense at Elimination Chamber later that year.

While speaking to TNT Sports, CM Punk was asked about The Rock making his return to WWE television. The Second City Saint made it clear he believes The Rock coming back is a great thing for WWE as a whole.

CM Punk would also state that his mouth still works, so he can still talk trash about The Rock while he recovers from his injury. Punk then mentioned how he was trash-talking The Rock at the WrestleMania 40 press event last week as well.


“I think it’s fantastic. Ten years ago, I was the guy that was wrestling The Rock when he came back, and now ten years later, he’s coming back, and I think the landscape has completely changed, right? WrestleMania is two nights now, it’s even bigger. Him coming back only helps. I always say high tide raises all ships. So I’m just happy that even though I’m hurt, I’m still gonna kinda be in the mix.”

”My mouth still works, so I’m gonna still be able to talk some trash. I don’t know if you saw the kickoff we did in Vegas with Rock and Roman and Seth and Cody. It was a lot of fun and I hope to just continue to do that while I’m recuperating because I can always just talk trash with the best of you. we love that part of it as well. It’s the best part. It’s what I do.”

We will have to wait and see whether WWE will eventually book CM Punk and The Rock in a proper feud once The Second City Saint makes a full recovery from his triceps injury. After all, fans would more than love to see the two have a long-term feud.
