Drew McIntyre On CM Punk: ‘He’s Certainly Controversial’

Last weekend, All Elite Wrestling and Tony Khan terminated their contracts with CM Punk. In the week and change since, rumors have run wild in regard to what The Second City Savior’s next move could be. The elephant in the room appears to be a possible return to WWE, and Superstars like Zelina Vega and Finn Balor have already weighed in. Vega was optimistic about the prospect, noting how supportive Punk has been of her throughout her career. Balor was far more coy, joking that he would wrestle a broomstick for the right price.

In an interview with Sportskeeda, Drew McIntyre became the latest WWE talent to be asked about their interest in working with Punk if he returns to the promotion.

“I mean, I don’t make those decisions,” he said. “I watch what I say in interviews, but he’s certainly controversial, and he gets people talking. So, I’ll leave it on that.”

The last time Punk and McIntyre shared a WWE locker room was back in 2014. At the time, Punk had already been a multi-time World Champion, while McIntyre was a little more lost in the shuffle, working with Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal as part of 3MB. Elsewhere in the interview, McIntyre was pressed about whether he is open to once again being part of a faction.

“I don’t know,” he thought out loud. “I’ve always felt like more of a lone wolf, and I have noticed that a lot of people, you know, have been farming factions and using it to their advantage. You mentioned The Bloodline, and there’s a reason that I wasn’t giving Jey Uso a big hug as soon as he showed up on to Monday Night Raw is because he was kicking my head in for about a year or six months straight and making sure I wasn’t become Undisputed Champion.

“Yeah, I just can’t imagine myself in a group right now. If the right people, the right time, the right place, the right cause became apparent that I really needed to form some kind of supergroup; it’s for the greater good, then I would. But right now, I just can’t imagine it. I do have Riddle nipping at my heels to be a tag team every week. So, he’s like an annoying dog, but I do like him.”
