Seth Rollins appeared as a guest on the SI Media Podcast. Among the topics discussed was his reaction to CM Punk's comeback at Survivor Series 2023. Rollins highlighted it as an emotional moment, expressing the inability to reverse time.

He is aware that his reaction could have been different. CM Punk's return otherwise caused a large number of reactions. While many are happy because they will be watching CM Punk on the big stage again, many are against it. “I understand why very few people knew what was going on that day.

In the moment I was extremely emotional… It was a very raw, emotional response. It was what it was, I can’t take it back… I wish I would have handled myself with a little bit more composure”. - he said, as quoted by!

Rollins is annoyed with how CM Punk keeps calling him out. He doesn't think he's the kind of guy Punk makes him out to be. And speaking of Punk, lots of famous faces in the wrestling scene seem to be targeting him too.

It's got people wondering why he's doing it and what he's after. “For a guy (CM Punk) who when I met him, made it seem like he was all about giving back to the business, he really turned into a pretty selfish guy and really wanted to take more from the industry.

He (CM Punk) said some really bad things about me. Talked down about me for years, and the company (WWE), for years. I’m talking some really bad stuff. Called me a bootlicker and crap like that. You don’t know me. You don’t know what I stand for.

I’m a loyal person, and I felt pretty insulted by a lot of the ways he treated me, treated the place I work for, treated friends that I worked with. I don’t need to get into any of the stuff with Colt Cabana if you want to look at that kind of stuff, that’s out there”.
