• CM Punk Met The “Crying CM Punk Guy” Backstage At All Out – Received VIP Treatment (Photo)
When former WWE Champion CM Punk returned to pro-wrestling on AEW Rampage, a fan was shown in the crowd getting very emotional, as he cried while watching Punk return after 7 years.
Below is a photo of him:
A lot of fans mocked him for crying, but this moment led to him meeting Punk.
This fan was brought backstage at the recent All Out PPV and was given VIP treatment with the “All Access” badge.
Below is a photo of him meeting Punk:
Punk said the following about this fan during an interview with ESPN:
“I’m a Chicago guy. I’m a Chicago sports guy. I cried when the Cubs won the World Series. I cried when the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, the time that I was alive when they won the Cup, not back in the 60s. You know, it means a lot. And I think it means a lot because I’m so attached to Chicago and sports especially. I understand.
So anybody who’s making fun of that dude, you’re making fun of me too. There’s nothing wrong with being emotional at a sporting event or anything you like. I’ll cry at a Marvel movie.”
