Seth Rollins On CM Punk: "Stay Away, You Cancer"

Rollins makes his feelings clear

Seth Rollins is no fan of former WWE colleague CM Punk, and expressed that sentiment in comments made to Nick Hausman of Wrestling Inc this weekend.

Rollins responded to Hausman asking if he'd want to work with Punk in a WWE ring again by saying, "Philly Phil, stay away. Stay away, you cancer, get away from me forever. I don't like Phil. I don't like Phil, he's a jerk. Did we just figure that out? Everybody in the room is like, 'did he say that?' Yeah, he's a jerk. Come on. We figured it out over there, we knew it over here. I don't want him back. Go do something else. Bye bye. See you later."

Punk has not been seen on AEW programming since All Out in September. Punk was suspended indefinitely following an altercation between he, then-producer Ace Steel, The Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega in the locker room, following comments Punk made at the post-show presser.

Punk and Rollins crossed paths in WWE several times between late 2012 and early 2014. Punk's final match was the 2014 Rumble, which he and Rollins were the first two entrants in.
