CM Punk made his big debut for AEW at Rampage The First Dance in the United Center. That moment brought tears to the eyes of many pro wrestling fans and they zoomed in on one fan who was crying during that huge moment in pro wrestling history, one that Punk considers the biggest moment of his own career.

While speaking to ESPN 100, Punk explained why his return meant so much to him. The building was very special to him, and he understands why it was an emotional moment. In the end, he said that if fans are going to mock that fan who was crying during Rampage then they’re mocking him as well.

“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 times I was alive when they won the Cup, not back in the 60s. It means a lot and it means a lot because I’m so attached to Chicago and sports, especially. I understand. Anyone making fun of that dude, you’re making fun of me too. There is nothing wrong with being emotional at sporting events or anything you like. I’ll cry at a Marvel movie.”

We’ll have to see what’s next for CM Punk, but he is obviously just getting started. His career has seen many huge moments already and he is likely to bring out an emotional reaction from fans for the long-term now that he is with Tony Khan’s company.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
