The latest episode of WWE Monday Night Raw kicked off with a fiery exchange between Jey Uso and Drew McIntyre, with a surprising early focus on CM Punk. Uso said he was excited Punk was in the building to make a decision on his contract. He rallied the crowd to chant ‘Yeet,’ and a good portion of the live audience played along. Not McIntyre, who in response, openly expressed his disapproval of Punk joining Raw.

McIntyre then made a plea to Adam Pearce not to sign the ‘Best In The World’ due to his potential disruptive impact on the locker room.

“Adam Pearce, please hear me right now and trust me. Let him go. Nick Aldis, you can have him on SmackDown because trust me, we do not want CM Punk in that locker room. He will destroy this place from the inside out. I’m sorry, do you know him personally? I’m one of the few people that traveled the world with him, i know what he’s like, so i know how this story ends.”

Drew McIntyre calls out CM Punk

McIntyre’s strong stance against Punk continued as he addressed the crowd, suggesting they don’t know the real man and when he goes ‘full Punk’ and becomes the selfish guy McIntyre knows, Raw will regret it. When the audience expressed their dissent with boos, McIntyre shifted gears and took his aim at Jey Uso. It wasn’t a long shot at Punk, but it was certainly enough to set the stage for a future feud.

Fans took to social media to joke about the future angle, some suggesting McIntyre and Punk had an altercation backstage. Others took aim at AEW for failing to do with Punk what WWE has already started doing — blur the lines between wrestling and reality.
