The 2024’s edition of the Royal Rumble is around the corner, and a few WWE Superstars have already officially declared for the Men’s and Women’s matches. Among them, the Best In The World CM Punk and the American Nightmare Cody Rhodes, who seem to appear as the two favorites on the Men’s side despite the threats of Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura or the Intercontinental champion Gunther. On this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE announced that Punk and Cody were going to have a face-to-face on the January 22 episode of the red brand.

So, what will they have to say to each other, just 5 days before the big event which will take place on January 27 in the Tropicana Field? On January 4, during the WWE “Preview 2024” program, CM Punk mentioned Cody Rhodes by saying: “My good buddy Cody likes to say he’s gonna finish his story. To me, this is finishing what I started, this is picking back up where I left off”.  Not so sure they will be “good buddies” anymore in St. Petersburg on January 27.

CM Punk and Cody Rhodes also met backstage during WWE SmackDown – Tribute To The Troops episode on December 8, when the winner of the 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble pointed the fact that both of them had the same goal in mind right now: winning the 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble to book their spot in the main event of WrestleMania 40. The segment had ended by a handshake between the two wrestlers, but will they shake hands again next week when they’ll meet face-to-face on WWE Raw?
