Seth Rollins addressed CM Punk’s return to the crowd after the match
After the match, Seth Rollins addressed his issues with CM Punk and said that the fans already knew what he thought about him. He also said that he would not waste his breath on Punk any longer.
“You already know how I feel about that, I said as much last night. I won’t be wasting any more breath on someone who’s been gone for eight years and has done nothing but try to tear this place down. Instead, I’m going to take my time and use my breath in talking about the people who have been here all along. Everybody in the back who has made WWE the hottest ticket in town and every single one of you who are here tonight.”
Drew McIntyre also spoke about what happened and why he stormed out, saying it had nothing to do with CM Punk and it was more to do with the fact that he had been losing for some time.
“I didn’t win the world title match recently. WarGames last night, stupid team lost the match for me. You’ve heard things probably on the internet. Not in a great place, but there’s one thing that can turn this frown upside down, that can change things for me. It’s getting that world title.”
It remains to be seen what happens on RAW and if Seth Rollins or Drew McIntyre confront CM Punk.
