WWE's Roman Reigns On CM Punk: "I Don't Like The Guy, I Don't Know Many People Who Do"
He would be open to facing him, though...
During a recent appearance on the Load Management Podcast, Universal Champion Roman Reigns admitted he would be willing to face CM Punk on WWE TV despite not being The Straight Edge Superstar's biggest fan.
Reigns said: "All the way from someone as big as The Rock to someone like a CM Punk, for instance, you know what I mean? Someone who really hits home with our home audience, our hardcore fanbase. If you've watched wrestling for the past 10-15 years and you love it and it's within your blood then you probably have some kind of feelings about that guy. I know I do.
"Despite doing one of these things, he made my job a lot harder 5-10 years ago. But if it's something that the fans can get behind and can really make them sink their teeth into the product and dive into the creative with us, I'm willing to do it. I don't like the guy, I don't know many people who do, but I'm willing to put business first and make really good content if that's the case.
"But, he'd probably have to be slapped around a few times in order to get his mind right, but if the fans and the audience is going to like it and be into it then most likely I'm willing to do it."
If CM Punk would be open to facing The Big Dog is another question entirely. The former WWE Champion hasn't stepped inside the squared circle since 2014 but he said earlier this year he would be interested in returning to the ring to face the likes of Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Rey Mysterio and Will Ospreay.
