CM Punk comments on potentially having one more match with John Cena in WWE

While speaking to media at the 2024 WWE Money in the Bank post-show press conference, CM Punk was asked about potentially having one more match with John Cena in WWE. Here was Punk’s response…

“I texted him right away, and I said, ‘Don’t leave before you say hi to me.’ He text back, ‘Haha, have a good one tonight.’ I immediately took that as ‘Piss off, I’m leaving.’ I know he’s busy. He’s filming Peacemaker. I figured he was leaving right away. I was pleasantly surprised to run into him afterward. I told him, ‘I’ll be the guy that drags him out of retirement.’ This retirement that he says he’s going to adhere to, and this is it, and when the final one happens, that’s going to be it. Fifteen years, I’ll drag him out of retirement.

Cena, to my career, means a lot. I don’t think there is many people up in that rare air where, if you talk about my career, I feel you have to talk about John. It makes me feel proud that I think if you talk about John’s career, I think you have to talk about me. We’re married in that respect. I’m proud of him. He gets to go out on his terms. I know that is important. I’m looking forward to what he does. I told him, ‘If it’s going to be one more time, we have to do it at least one more time.’” (quote courtesy of
