Responding to a fan asking about a Merriman vs. Punk match at WrestleMania, Merriman replied, “I wouldn’t waste my fist.”
This followed an earlier tweet about Raw coming to Washington, D.C. on April 1, which is the Raw before Mania. “Did I hear @wwe raw coming to Dc? I’m going to need some tickets in my possession,” wrote Merriman.
Back in 2011 and 2012, Punk and Merriman “feuded” on Twitter after Punk called out Merriman for flirting with WWE Divas.
