WWE superstar Seth Rollins has spent more than a decade on the promotion. When he speaks, the wrestling world certainly takes notice. The Architect’s recent comments about the suspended AEW wrestler CM Punk raised many eyebrows. He addressed the latter as a “cancer”. But he has since come out with a more detailed version of what he thinks about the controversial superstar. Rollins’ recent remarks give an insight into what prompted his previous comments.

He is not the first fellow wrestler to criticize Punk, and certainly would not be the last. ‘The Voice of The Voiceless’ has been under the scanner ever since his media scrum last September. While Rollins has largely stood by what he said previously about Punk, he has since explained the previous rapport that the two share. He sat down with Fox Sports Radio recently and talked about the aforementioned comments by him.

He said, Here’s the thing that I will say one thing about Punk and end it on a positive note with him: that guy has given my career so much that it pains me to have to say bad things about him because he helped me out, he really did.

“He’s been a good guy to me for a lot of my career but for whatever reason, the past, maybe, six seven years, he’s in a different headspace and we’re not on the same page and to see kind of what he’s done and taken, taken, taken it’s always about him, I’m not a fan. I’m just not a fan. Not a fan.” added The Arealist.

The Architect would be competing in the upcoming Elimination Chamber match. The intense match would be happening for the US title this year. Rollins did not hold back on his views on Logan Paul either recently. He said that he was not a fan of The Maverick and what he brought to the wrestling world.

Coming back to Punk, the writing was certainly on the wall for him, even before the tainted media interaction. His obnoxious comments as per Sportster about “Hangman” Adam Page did not go down well with many viewers. While there is no doubt about Punk’s ability in the ring, the recent criticism from all quarters possibly holds some truth.
