CM Punk and former WWE Superstar Lana aren't exactly great buddies.

Back when CM Punk was working on WWE Backstage, he posted a tweet about Lana that didn't sit well with her. Lana was involved in a controversial storyline with Bobby Lashley and Miro at the time.

Punk gave his thoughts on the angle on WWE Backstage, and it was clear he didn't like it much. Punk made fun of the storyline by pitching his own idea for its conclusion.

The former WWE Champion stated that Miro and Lashley would face a tag team managed by Lana at WrestleMania, with Lana being put in a shark cage. He added that the losers of the match would get Lana. Punk later posted a tweet as well, and referred to Lana as 'chica' in it. Lana hit back at Punk and dubbed his comments 'misogynistic'.

I know you’ve been away from @WWE for several years. Perhaps moving forward, you will favor #WWE and @FS1 by refraining from misogynistic comments like “chica.” Thank you. #WWEBackstage…

Fans weren't thrilled with Lana's backhanded jab back at Punk's tweet. Many took to the reply section to express their opinions on Lana's tweet:

@LanaWWE @WWE @FS1 How is that misogynistic?
@LanaWWE @WWE @FS1 How exactly is chica misogynistic
@LanaWWE @WWE @FS1 Girl, you been you for 6 months?Because if you been you for 6 months, I don't think you'd tweet this.
@LanaWWE @WWE @FS1 So it’s misogynistic of him to call you a girl? Got it.
@LanaWWE @WWE @FS1 Just gonna leave this here, don't mind me

CM Punk is currently an AEW regular while Lana doesn't work with WWE anymore

A lot has changed over the past year. Lana's storyline with Lashley and Miro ended abruptly on the road to WrestleMania. Miro came off the angle looking much worse as he lost most matches against Lashley.

Lana's on-screen angle with Lashley came to an end shortly after WrestleMania, ending with a divorce after Lana accidentally cost Lashley his WWE title match against Drew McIntyre. Lana worked in WWE for another year and was recently let go by the company. There's no concrete news on what's next for her.

Paul Heyman hinted to Sportskeeda that someone may join Roman Reigns' stable. Click here for more.
