NJPW Superstar Calls Out CM Punk.
NJPW Superstar and New IWGP US Heavyweight Champion KENTA has called out CM Punk in what appears to be a set up for a potential dream match for wrestling fans!
KENTA is coming off the back of a huge win by winning the IWGP United States Championship, defeating Hiroshi Tanahashi at Power Struggle.
Immediately after the win, in a post match press conference, KENTA called out the Straight Edge Superstar for a possible clash.
Here's what he had to say:
“After three years, I finally prove who the f**k I am, baby. I’m the United States Champion. It doesn’t matter if it’s going to happen or not, but I just want to entertain you guys. I want to give you guys a home. Hey, CM Punk! I’m ready to put you to sleep.”
KENTA is no stranger to AEW, as he had a short run which saw him feud against Jon Moxley, which saw him beat Moxley in a non sanctioned match during a tag team bout.
Both CM Punk and KENTA are big stars in their own right. Both men have similar styles, most notably the GTS (Go To Sleep) that Punk has used for a number of years and has seen him win multiple Championships.
This is a dream match for many fans with many debating who utilises the move best.
