3 Superstars Who Should Face CM Punk At WWE Royal Rumble 2024

7 months ago By Sports Desk

The world of WWE was set ablaze with excitement and sheer disbelief when CM Punk, the “Best in the World,” made a sensational surprise return at Survivor Series 2023. This iconic moment, coming at the culmination of the year’s last pay-per-view, is already being hailed as one of the most electrifying WWE returns of the decade. Fans erupted in joy, marking the return of a beloved and controversial figure in the wrestling world.

However, the buzz around Punk’s return was not without its share of drama. A video clip quickly spread across the internet, capturing an apparently irate Seth Rollins, who was seen gesturing offensively towards CM Punk. This led to widespread speculation among fans – was Rollins genuinely upset about Punk’s return, or was this the beginning of a new storyline?

Amidst the confusion, WWE insider Kermit shed some light on the situation. Contrary to the belief that Punk’s return was a tightly guarded secret, it appears Rollins was in the know. The history between Seth Rollins, also known as the “Drip God,” and CM Punk is fraught with tension and public exchanges of disdain. Rollins has never shied away from expressing his dislike for the “Second City Saint,” CM Punk. Kermit’s revelations hint at a potential showdown between these two titans at either Royal Rumble 2024 or WrestleMania 40.

Moving on to the second superstar who could potentially face CM Punk at Royal Rumble 2024, Roman Reigns stands out as a formidable opponent. Currently away from WWE, Reigns is expected to return soon to WWE SmackDown. His reputation as the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, a title he has held for over 1200 days, precedes him. Interestingly, Roman Reigns and CM Punk have never faced each other in a singles match. Their only encounter in the ring was during a tag team match. The prospect of these two superstars clashing for the first time in a singles bout, possibly for the title, is an electrifying prospect for WWE fans. This potential matchup at Royal Rumble 2024 promises to be a historic and highly anticipated event.

The third superstar who might step into the ring with CM Punk at Royal Rumble 2024 is Drew McIntyre. Known for his formidable presence and status as a top superstar on WWE RAW, McIntyre presents a unique challenge for CM Punk. Should WWE decide against a title match for Punk, a bout with McIntyre could be on the cards. This matchup would not only be high stakes due to McIntyre’s standing in WWE RAW but also because it would be a test of Punk’s ability to reassert his dominance in the wrestling world. Fans can anticipate a clash of titans if these two wrestlers meet in the ring at Royal Rumble 2024.

Beyond these three obvious choices, there are several other wrestlers who could end up facing the “Best in the World” at the Royal Rumble event. Kevin Owens has made his desire to battle CM Punk abundantly clear ever since the latter’s return. Their sharply contrasting personalities and in-ring styles could result in riveting action for the WWE Universe.

Bray Wyatt is another tantalizing opponent for Punk, given their history from the latter’s previous WWE run. Wyatt’s new gimmick as an eerie cult leader has been gaining immense popularity, and a match against Punk could elevate him to the next level. Their segments on the mic against each other would undoubtedly be electric.

An outsider choice to challenge CM Punk is current WWE United States Champion Austin Theory. Riding a wave of momentum with his exciting moveset and athleticism, Theory could gain immensely if he is booked to face a legendary figure like CM Punk. Their vastly differing experience levels inside the squared circle would make for an intriguing story.

On the women’s side, Becky Lynch battling CM Punk would be a novel matchup, pitting two charismatic fan favorites against one another. WWE has not shied away from intergender contests lately, as evidenced by Rhea Ripley taking on Dominik Mysterio. Hence, this prospective bout may not be too far-fetched.

Beyond these names, CM Punk has no shortage of adversaries from both the current era and WWE legends who could resurface. The Miz, John Cena, Edge and even Stone Cold Steve Austin have been proposed by fans as potential WrestleMania rivals. But before the Showcase of the Immortals, the 2024 Royal Rumble could see a litany of fresh clashes for the Second City Savior.

Regardless of the opponent, CM Punk’s return and the subsequent path it takes has undoubtedly injected excitement into WWE programming. Each week, the WWE Universe eagerly anticipates which direction this combustible superstar will steer the promotion toward. His undeniable magnestism and flair for theatrics is captivating audiences everywhere.

For now, the betting odds seem to pit Rollins as the most expected foe for Punk, possibly in a short feud culminating at the Rumble. But Reigns and McIntyre are both firmly in contention as well. Whichever direction WWE opts for, one thing remains certain – CM Punk’s return will continue enthralling viewers each week on the road to Royal Rumble 2024.
