CM Punk’s return to pro wrestling made grown men cry.
During AEW All Out Weekend earlier this month, “The Best in the World” met up with the viral fan who was shown on camera crying during CM Punk’s AEW debut on Rampage: The First Dance at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
While talking with ESPN Chicago last month, Punk spoke about meeting up with the viral fan.
“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 sixties. 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.”
In an update, a photo has surfaced showing Punk meeting up with the fan. Check it out below.
