One of the looming questions prior to last weekend’s “ALL IN” event in Chicago was if CM Punk would make an appearance at the show, given it took place in his hometown of Chicago and he did appear at an autograph signing over the same weekend. But the show came and went, and Punk did not make an appearance as some fans might have hoped.
We noted earlier this week that Punk was not backstage for the event, nor did he appear anywhere near “ALL IN” and its accompanying Starrcast events, making only the one autograph appearance as scheduled.
Furthermore, ProWrestling.com’s Mike Killam pointed out that loud boos could be heard coming from fans in attendance for “ALL IN” and during the Starrcast weekend anytime Punk’s name was mentioned, likely stemming from the current lawsuit between Punk and Colt Cabana, who appeared at “ALL IN” and Starrcast.
Scorpio Sky, who teamed up with Frankie Kazarian during the “ALL IN Zero Hour” show to face The Briscoes, Tweeted the following to Punk, questioning why he was not at “ALL IN”, thinking that an appearance at the event could have “reinstated” his love of pro wrestling:
Hey @CMPunk you missed a show that would have completely reinstated your love of pro wrestling over the weekend. You may hate it now because of your former employer but this is a different world. Where you at? #ALLIN2
