The Straight Edge Superstar made a shocking return to the company at Survivor Series last month, nearly a decade after he departed the company. He went on to sign with the RAW 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 Royal Rumble match, and if he wins the bout, he could pick The Bloodline 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.”
