CM Punk has been at an all-time high with the cheers from the crowd. The WWE Universe does not disappoint when The Second City Saint enters the arena, and his promos have been absolutely cut-throat. Interestingly, he has taken shots at Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Cody Rhodes as well.
Given that The Road to WrestleMania 40 is about to begin, fans should be aware of some of the subtle clues that CM Punk has been dropping about his opponent at The Grandest Stage of All. Lately, Punk has been pushing himself to the same platform as The American Nightmare and claiming a WrestleMania spot, calling out Roman Reigns, and even announcing himself for Royal Rumble 2024.
Keeping Punk's actions in mind, the narrative for the high-profile end-game at WrestleMania 40 may have completely changed. Instead of Roman Reigns stealing the spotlight, it all comes down to The Second City Saint. If CM Punk wins the Men's Royal Rumble match, The American Nightmare can be robbed of the chance to finish his story. Punk can challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship instead.
However, if WWE is focused on giving Rhodes the chance to finish his story, Punk can win a #1 contender match to challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40.
