It seems CM Punk is a bit jealous of WWE Hall of Famer Edge who holds a key point to WrestleMania 37 as he is the Royal Rumble winner. He made his miraculous return at last year’s Royal Rumble event following the career-ending in 2011 due to a neck injury. Then, Edge came back this year to create his own path on the Road to the Show of Shows.
Former WWE Superstar CM Punk recently had a conversation with his fans via a Q & A session on Twitter, who received a good range of questions. Among them, one of the fans asked him what he thought of Edge winning the Royal Rumble match.
“#askpunk how do you feel about Edge winning the Royal Rumble?”
I see five guys that have potential. Hobbs, Darbs, Pillman, Starks, Jungle Boy. And that’s not to say there are others, but those guys stick out.

Interestingly, CM Punk revealed that he is excited about Edge possessing a jacked body and getting a second act, nowadays. He added that he is jealous of Edge’s abs.
“Super stoked for him to get a second act. And jealous of his abs.”
These two superstars had met in the ring, more than a decade ago. WWE Universe could’ve loved to see a rematch between these two veterans but then again there’s no chance of seeing the Straight Edge Superstar back on WWE TV.
