WWE news: Roman Reigns 'doesn't like' CM Punk, says he needs to be 'slapped around'

Reigns doesn't like WWE legend CM Punk

Roman Reigns stole the show at Clash of Champions on Sunday night. 

The Big Dog battled his cousin Jey Uso in the main event of the PPV, defending his Universal title.

While we all expected him to pick up the win, many fans were shocked at just how brutal Reigns was throughout, beating down and humiliating his own bloodline. 

But that's a good thing. The WWE Universe has been calling for heel Roman for so long now and this past Sunday, it finally happened. 

Reigns debuted a new look too, wrestling without a vest for the first time and fans were absolutely loving the full-blown Samoan badass. 

He's also been showing off a new attitude away from the ring too. His early promos have certainly been impressive and The Big Dog really does suit this darker character. 

It's not just in WWE that he's making heel comments either. In recent interviews, Reigns has been far more open and honest. 

Reigns has been open about a number of WWE topics

Last week, he claimed Jon Moxley 'screwed' The Shield by leaving AEW and now, he's given his thoughts on CM Punk - and they aren't exactly complimentary.

In an interview with the Load Management Complex podcast, Roman revealed his disdain for Punk but claimed he would be open to 'slapping him around' in a match. 

"If it’s something that the fans can get behind and that it can really make them sink their teeth into the product, and really dive into the creative with us, I’m willing to do it. 

Reigns opened up about CM Punk

I don’t like the guy, I don’t know many people who do, but I’m willing to put business first and make really good content if that’s the case.

"He’d probably have to be slapped around a few times in order to get his mind right, but if it’s willing, and the fans and the audience are going to like it and be into it, then most likely I’m going to be into it."

We love this new side of Reigns. But while he admitted his dislike for the WWE legend, he also admires what Punk has done in the business. 

Reigns respects what Punk did for the WWE

"If you’d watched wrestling for the past 10 to 15 years and you love it and it’s within your blood, then you probably have some kind of feelings about that guy," Roman continued.

"I know I do - just by doing one of these things, he made my job a lot harder."
