Hall Of Famer Thinks WWE Should Give A Giant Middle Finger To AEW At WrestleMania 40 With Cody Rhodes vs. CM Punk

CM Punk Says He Main Evented WrestleMania WrestleFeed App

World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins injured his leg on this week’s WWE RAW. He will undergo an MRI to find out how serious his injury is.

If Rollins is forced to vacate the title, then Bubba Ray Dudley thinks WWE should book CM Punk vs. Cody Rhodes for the World Title at WrestleMania 40, which he thinks would be a giant middle finger to All Elite Wrestling.

Here’s what Bubba said on Busted Open Radio:

“One of the first things that comes to mind about Cody vs. Punk for the World Heavyweight Championship is a giant middle finger to AEW. Do I think that’s going to be on purpose? Well, maybe.

Here’s your two biggest stars that you let leave, or they left, or whatever the reason they were there but I’m over here now and those guys would main event Night 1.”

Bubba then said the following about Punk and Rhodes having a face-to-face segment on next week’s RAW:

“Maybe Cody wins, maybe Punk wins, maybe they want to get a gauge on both of these guys and what they would be as World Champions.

On the surface, it makes for compelling television, beneath the surface it could very much tell the WWE who the people, albeit just in New Orleans, are behind.

To me, it is very 50/50 right now and it will come down to the verbiage.”
