During the men's Royal Rumble match, Punk suffered torn triceps that will keep him out of action for several months, including Wrestlemania 40.

Punk made his unexpected return to WWE at the Survivor Series in November, and fans expected to watch the star at the main event in Wrestlemania, per BBC.

Speaking to Wrestle Radio Australia ahead of WWE Elimination Chamber, Rollins had some words for CM Punk.

"I mean, I don't want to say I told you so. But me and a lot of other people told you so. What's the line? Fragile mind. Fragile body. Fragile ego. I think somebody that I know said something like that about him, and it rings true. So look, here's the deal, and I told him this in the ring, if you want to find your way to me and the World Heavyweight Championship, you're gonna have to work for it; the deal is he's gonna have to work a little harder now." he said via Fightful.

Drew McIntyre outlasted Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley, LA Knight, Kevin Owens, and Logan Paul. McIntyre will face Rollins at Wrestlemania 40.

Will CM Punk ever main event?

Punk was, at one point, one of the biggest WWE superstars in the world, alongside John Cena. However, he wrestled in a Wrestlemania main event, something that he made clear many times he wanted to do.

His injury during the men's Royal Rumble match ended his hopes of main-eventing in the Showcase of the Immortals this year.

Before returning to WWE, Punk suffered a series of injuries that affected his run as AEW world champion, per Bleacher Report.

Barring another injury setback, CM Punk will main-event Wrestlemania in 2025.

CM Punk makes dramatic WWE return

Sports Brief earlier reported on CM Punk making his return to WWE after leaving the promotion in 2014.

There was a raucous reaction from the fans after his music hit. Punk celebrated with the crowd, who couldn't believe the legend had returned. It is probably the most shocking WWE return in the last decade.
