The Undertaker addressed rumors about his relationship with CM Punk, clarifying that there’s no animosity between them despite past feuds in WWE. The Undertaker and CM Punk faced off at WWE WrestleMania 29, where The Undertaker secured his final victory at the event before Brock Lesnar broke his iconic streak in 2014.

In a Q&A session exclusive to his Patreon, The Undertaker spoke about an interaction with CM Punk that might have been misinterpreted as heated. He explained that the incident occurred during an initiative to encourage WWE wrestlers to dress in business casual while traveling.

The Undertaker recalled that he suggested Punk dress a bit more formally to avoid heat with other wrestlers, given his distinctive punk style. He noted that the interaction was straightforward and resolved quickly.

“The only thing that ever was ever done or said between me and Punk that might have been and this is just how stupid things are and how everything that ever happens gets out. This is the thing that frustrates me the most. So we had an initiative at one point where they wanted us, the wrestlers when, you know, [traveling] to dress a little bit nicer. They wanted us in business casual with a really relaxed [viewpoint] on the casual,” said ‘Taker. “I think we might have been in Europe. I’m not sure where we’re at, I want to say we were somewhere in Europe, and we were getting off the buses, and getting ready to go into the arena, and I just stopped him. Because he was, you know, he was dressing like Punk did back in the day, whatever it was.


“I was like, like, ‘Hey, man, none of us, like, having to dress like this, but I think you’re getting a little bit of heat with the boys. You just might want to think about dressing a little better.’ If I recall correctly, he says, ‘Well, what about Cena?’ I may have replied, ‘You’re not Cena.’ There’s nothing wrong with that.”

The Undertaker praised CM Punk’s in-ring skills and clarified that they don’t need to be best friends to work well together. He mentioned that CM Punk might have felt he should have been in the main event or that he should have gone over in their WrestleMania match, but emphasized that their working relationship was professional and without personal issues.

Ultimately, The Undertaker dismissed rumors that he hates CM Punk, stating that he tries not to give people the power of hate. He stressed that they may not be close friends, but there’s no underlying tension, and they shared a mutual respect for their craft.

“I guess, you know, he thought he should have been the main event when we worked [at WrestleMania] against somebody else, not against me. Then, when he works with me, I’m not sure if he thought that he should have went over, but I mean he’s got confidence in himself, so I don’t — working wise, I mean, perfect, and that’s all I care about. At the end of the day, you don’t have to like me. You don’t have to be best friends, but somehow or another, it all got blown out of proportion that like, ‘Undertaker hates CM Punk.’ No. I don’t I try not to give people the power of hate.”

In conclusion, while some may have thought that The Undertaker’s victory over Punk at WrestleMania 28 may have caused real-life tension between the two, The Undertaker has spoken out to deny this. Instead, he praised Punk as a great person to work with and emphasized that their working relationship was always professional and business-focused.
