Although Rollins is interested in doing the match, he doesn’t think that it has to be at WrestleMania. The reason for that is due to his belief that the match against Punk would sell out wherever they went with it.
“It would not have to be a WrestleMania and as far as wanting to match? Yes, absolutely with CM Punk,” Rollins said. “If he’s going to come back and get into the ring, which is not something that he has been seemingly interested in since he returned — he seems to be very comfortable sitting behind the desk and talking about wrestling, being a fan again and then by all means, he should go ahead and do that.
“But if he wants to get back into the ring and show that he’s more than just a critic, and that he can actually back up what he is saying then I would love to be the guy to get in there and have the match and I think WrestleMania would be the proper stage for it, but I don’t think it has to happen at WrestleMania. I think that match is bigger than any one event and so if he were ever to come back, we could do it anytime, anyplace and it would sell out wherever.”
Although Punk is working as a special analyst for FOX Sports on the weekly talk show, WWE Backstage, he has yet to be in talks with WWE about a return.
