John Cena shares a cryptic post about CM Punk
John Cena is at it once again. The 16-time World Champion took to Instagram to post a picture of none other than CM Punk.
This comes after a highly tense episode of SmackDown at The BOK Center in Tusla, where Cena referenced the likes of Ric Flair, Dean Ambrose, and CM Punk during his promo.
In an uncut war of words, Cena told Reigns that the Head of the Table was a byproduct of the system and despite repeated pushes, Roman is still a failure. Cena declared that he would take the WWE Universal Championship at Summerslam, jump the barricades, and head for the exit at Allegiant Stadium.
In the process, Cena mentioned that he might even kiss goodbye to the fallen champ. CM Punk did just that when he beat John Cena for the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank ten years ago.
On Instagram, John Cena posted a picture of the exact moment when CM Punk blew a kiss to Vince McMahon. Punk had won the WWE Championship from John Cena at the main event of Money in the Bank in front of a thunderous home crowd at the Allstate Arena in Chicago.
CM Punk responds to John Cena promo
CM Punk recently posted an Instagram story of Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter series after the promo battle between John Cena and Roman Reigns. The parallel drawn here is that Voldemort is referred to as “He who must not be named” which is often the case with CM Punk in WWE as well.
These Easter eggs have the entire wrestling business captivated as to the timing of CM Punk’s return to wrestling. On the WWE side of things, the excitement is at a fever pitch for SummerSlam, with the card already stacking up.
