CM Punk rejects chance of taking on dream match as AEW champ rules out facing New Japan Pro Wrestling star KENTA

WRESTLING fan-favorite CM Punk appears to have emphatically ruled out a showdown with NJPW star KENTA.

The AEW veteran, 43, has been called out by the Japanese star for a crossover fight at collab show Forbidden Door in June.




Since the Chicago show was announced, KENTA has been throwing shade at Punk via social media.

He taunted the former WWE star for using the 'Go 2 Sleep' finishing move, which KENTA maintains was his signature finisher first.

On April 22, he uploaded a mocked-up snap to his Twitter showing Punk surrounded by a number of guns.

KENTA captioned it: "No way out."

But it looks as if his efforts to create a crossover match for the ages are set to fall flat.

Punk has so far kept quiet on the budding feud but looks to have poured cold water on KENTA's plans.

When asked by ComicBook.com if he wanted the fight to happen, Punk simply replied: "No."

KENTA was quick to respond to the rejection – and was scathing that the fight looks unlikely to happen.

Posting a snap of the 'No' answer, he said: "Hahaha. Perfect answer.

"Zero interest and keep using MY finish. What a garbage."

Punk began his wrestling career in 1999 and was voted Wrestler of the Year in 2011 after excelling in WWE.

After a short foray in UFC, he joined All Elite Wrestling in 2021 and could potentially still play a role at the Forbidden Door show.

He is next scheduled to appear in AEW show Double Or Nothing against champ 'Hangman' Adam Page on May 29.

KENTA, 41, is best known for his time with Pro Wrestling Noah and is a former Global Honored Crown heavyweight champion.

The Forbidden Door show will be a pay-per-view event and will feature the very best talent from the AEW and NJPW.

It will be held on June 26 in Chicago and will be available to watch on on FITE TV, NJPWWorld, and traditional pay-per-view formats.
