MJF fired a shot at CM Punk after claiming Punk has always been the second-best throughout his career, whether it was to John Cena or Triple H. MJF referred Cena as the ‘You can’t see me man’ and Triple H as the ‘King of Kings’. Well, Punk took his revenge on MJF after indirectly referring to Triple H’s marriage with Vince McMahon’s daughter, Stephanie McMahon.


Punk claimed if he is not number one, then MJF is not the number one either. The former WWE superstar took an ugly shot at Triple H by stating the only way that MJF can become number one. Punk said, “The only way you are going to be number one is if we all wait around long enough for Tony (Khan) to have a daughter that you marry.
