Prepare For War As Raw Heads For Chicago Without Hometown Boy CM Punk

Prepare For War As Raw Heads For Chicago Without Hometown Boy CM Punk

Raw returns to Chicago for the first time this year and, of course, for the first time since hometown cult hero CM Punk controversially walked away from WWE.

The Chicago crowd are famous for their appreciation of the man they dub the ‘Second City Saint’ and is shown the last time he looked set to be leaving the WWE.

Punk’s absence has been covered in speculation as to whether this is a real or a storyline but Monday’s Raw could come up with all the answers.

Reports suggest ‘The Best In The World’ turned his back on the company because he wasn’t happy at Batista returning to the WWE to work part-time, earn more money than full-time stars, win the Royal Rumble and headline Wrestlemania ahead of Daniel Bryan, who he believes has worked unbelievably hard for a shot at the big time, which, so far, hasn’t come.

If the past few month’s pay per views are anything to go by – and the constant snubbing of what the fans want to see (Punk or Bryan top of the pile) – then the fans are well within their rights to organise a hijack of this Monday’s Raw in Chicago.

Details have been circulating social media of what’s to be expected from ‘Punk’s Domain’:


Punk has made one public appearance since, what Vince McMahon described as, his “sabbatical” and that was sitting in the front row of last week’s Ronda Rousey UFC main event in Las Vegas.

Whether or not he’ll be sitting among the Chicago crowd or walking down the ramp to the iconic Cult Of Personality theme tune remains to be seen but one thing is for sure, the WWE better brace itself for a hostile crowd who want nothing less than the BEST IN THE WORLD back where he belongs!
