Undertaker clarifies rumors about beef with CM Punk

Contrary to the rumors, the Phenom had zero issues with CM Punk at all, even claiming that he enjoyed their in-ring rivalry.

WrestleMania 29 saw The Undertaker extend his streak for one last match before Brock Lesnar ended it one year later.

Remember the rumored beef that Undertaker reportedly had with CM Punk back when he was with the WWE? Apparently, that wasn't true.

Undertaker joined Inside The Ropes to talk about his relationship with the former WWE and AEW world champion, saying:

He was great to work with. I'm very proud of that match [at WrestleMania 29]. We saw down and we thought about ideas and everything, it was great. I had no beef with Punk. He was always business with me and hopefully I was with him.

Punk had an extremely good run with the WWE in the early 2010s. After reigning as the WWE champion for 434 days, he'd tussle with the deadman, which culminated in a match at WrestleMania 29.

At the time, the Undertaker was still sporting his undefeated WrestleMania streak. This was central to the booking as Punk wanted to become the first (and only) wrestler to give Taker that L.

The match was quite memorable and Punk nearly succeeded in breaking the streak. Unfortunately, the Phenom went home with the win and his streak intact. He'd go on to add more Ws to his name until one year later at WrestleMania 30 where he'd lose to Brock Lesnar.

As for Punk, he left the WWE following the 2014 Royal Rumble due to backstage politics. He'd go on a lengthy hiatus until joining AEW in 2021 where he's still currently signed. Punk is currently nursing an injury that he suffered at All Out, but it's speculated this is part of his suspension as well.

The Undertaker's entrance and performance at WrestleMania 29 was one for the ages.

Triple H recently revealed that he's willing to resign CM Punk for the WWE if Punk's open to it, but it appears some within the roster doesn't want this to happen.
