When CM Punk left WWE, the promotion was trying to build a new top guy for the company and the guy was none other than Roman Reigns. The last match that CM Punk competed in was the Royal Rumble match 2014. In the same match Roman Reigns set a new record by eliminating 12 men from a single Rumble match by beating the previous record of Kane.
CM Punk Praises Roman Reigns
As CM Punk made his departure from WWE, the rise of Roman empire could not be stopped by anyone. There were a lot of difficulties in the way, fans started to hate the push he was receiving. But nothing could bother WWE as they were determined to push him.
He won a total of five World Championships in WWE and he is holding the WWE Universal Championship right now. After having so much heat from the fans, he is finally having some good time in the WWE.
CM Punk recently featured as a guest on the Wrestling Perspective podcast where he spoke about the rise of Roman Reigns and he also said what he thinks of the current WWE Universal champion. He said;
“Being a fan of pro wrestling is kind of the genesis of being creative but I think a lot of the times, the best stuff, you just kind of gotta go with the flow of it, you know? And I’ll use Roman Reigns as an example, because if we’re talking about good stuff, if the WWE does anything good, this is the one thing that they’re doing right is Roman Reigns.
“His character work, his in-ring stuff, it’s all great. But I feel like classic WWE, they’re always five years, ten years late. This is something that they should’ve done originally because they tried so hard to get this guy over as a babyface and they gave him x amount of Mania main events and they’re just like, ‘This is the guy, this is the guy, this is the guy’ and he never really had his moments until now.”
