Current UFC Champion Calls for Roman Reigns to Defeat CM Punk at WrestleMania 40 and Retain the WWE Title

Current Welterweight Champion Leon Edwards has shared that he wants to see a match between and at 40.

The Straight Superstar made a shocking return to the company at last month, nearly a decade after he departed the company. He went on to sign with the brand, and during one of his in-ring segments, he mentioned The Tribal Chief, setting up a future feud with the world champion. He also said he would be entering the match, and if he wins the bout, he could pick leader as his opponent.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, UFC fighter Leon Edwards stated that he's interested in seeing Roman Reigns have a match against CM Punk in the main event of WrestleMania 40:

“I want Roman Reigns vs. CM Punk,” said Edwards. “That's what I want to see.”

“I'm excited that Punk is back. Those are my son's favorites, so they're my favorites, too.”

“100 percent, I like when that happens,” said Edwards with a laugh. “I want Roman to win.”
