Drew McIntyre took to social media to take a shot at CM Punk and Cody Rhodes following their heartfelt interaction backstage on RAW.

This past Monday on RAW, Punk announced that he would be forced to sit on the sidelines for WrestleMania 40 after suffering a tricep injury during the Men’s Royal Rumble Match.

In reaction to Punk and Rhodes’ backstage moment, McIntyre took a shot at both men on Twitter/X.

Booker T praised CM Punk for his actions during the Royal Rumble Match

During the closing moments of the Men’s Royal Rumble Match, CM Punk showed signs of a potential heel turn as he mocked Cody Rhodes and his late father, Dusty.

Wrestling veteran Booker T praised the former WWE Champion for his awareness and praised him in the process. Speaking on the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker said:

“You know what? I’ve got to give Punk his due; he did his job. He turned heel. He made the crowd do their job. He knew that at the end of the match, it had to be at its peak – the highest decibel level. That’s the mark of someone who knows what they’re doing.”

Punk was aiming to face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 40 for the World Heavyweight Championship. However, due to his injury, The Best In The World plans on headlining WrestleMania 41. It remains to be seen how long Punk will be sidelined for.
