Seth Rollins Calls CM Punk A Coward For His WWE Backstage Comments

CM Punk had a lot to say about Seth Rollins immediately after stating that WWE Backstage was not the right place to shoot wrestling angles.

As soon as CM Punk walked onto the set of WWE Backstage, fans' cogs started to turn. Why is he back, and is it the start of something more? Clearly, it wasn't just the fans who were intrigued and excited by Punk's return. Almost as soon as Renee Young introduced him onto the show, Seth Rollins tweeted a challenge to the former WWE Champion.

Punk revealed that he would be back on Backstage this week and his appearance made for even more can't miss television. Most notably, the promo he cut on Tom Arnold right at the end of the show. Before that, Young asked Punk about the challenge from Rollins, and he didn't have much good to say.

Punk said that Twitter doesn't seem to be doing much good for The Architect lately, and recommended he delete his account. He also dropped Rollins' name right at the end of the aforementioned show-closing promo, claiming it to be a Freudian slip. Seems as if Rollins was watching the show once again, but did not take Punk's advice to delete his Twitter account.

Instead, the leader of Raw's men's Survivor Series team dug an even deeper hold, labeling Punk a coward for his response. Something makes us think that sort of thing won't be what ends up tempting Punk back between the ropes. On the bright side, even though The Straight Edge Superstar revealed he isn't actively looking to wrestle again, he admitted that the last few years have taught him to never say never.

If Punk and Rollins were to have a match, it wouldn't be the first time they've been in the ring together. Far from it, in fact. One of Punk's final angles before leaving WWE revolved around the introduction of The Shield. They even teamed together for a match in NXT. It would be their first one-on-one match, though. Should Punk shock us all and return at next year's Royal Rumble, we'd love to see that match go down at WrestleMania 36.
