KENTA’s moved on from wanting a match with CM Punk, unless...

KENTA has been calling for a match with CM Punk pretty much since Punk started using the Go To Sleep finisher the former WWE & current New Japan wrestler invented.

For his part, Punk admitted to “stealing” the move, but has otherwise always no sold KENTA’s taunts. Regardless, the Bullet Club member’s persisted with them. He even offered his services to AEW after Punk’s return was confirmed for the premiere of Collision for a week from this Saturday:

But today (June 7), quote-tweeting a Tik Tok video summarizing their beef history, KENTA seems to have moved on from the GTS issue. He says he doesn’t need a match with Punk at this point, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t take one if the money was right:

There’s a couple high profile events coming up where a Punk/KENTA match could happen — namely Forbidden Door on June 25 and All In on Aug. 27.
