CM Punk had a verbal altercation with World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre on the March 25th, 2024 episode of WWE RAW in Chicago, Illinois. At one point, Punk attempted to get McIntyre to say Vince McMahon’s name by asking who appointed McIntyre as “The Chosen One” in WWE. McMahon first referred to McIntyre as “The Chosen One” on WWE television in 2009.

Punk said the following during his promo to McIntyre:

“Chosen one? Who chose you? Who? What was his name, huh? You got the balls to say you’re the chosen one? Tell me, what paragon of good virtue chose you? It wasn’t the people in Chicago.”

While speaking to The UK Metro, Drew McIntyre addressed what Punk said:

“What was going through my mind was I could respond right now, and would it be a good look for our company? And I have to make a decision because we’re going O.K. Corral-style, unloading rounds on each other. I did what I thought was right for not just the company, but for our roster, and held my tongue on that night. I had a couple of things in mind that would have melted the internet, but potentially hurt us in different ways.”

“If you see Drew McIntyre going off those lines, swearing and saying things like ‘wow, this is gonna potentially hurt himself or the company or the roster’, then it’s because I have lost it. You’ve gotta be professional and good at your job. If anything, it makes it more compelling because you know… we just don’t like each other.”
