Marty Scurll asked fans in Chicago whether they think CM Punk is the best wrestler in the world and he got an unexpected response.
All In weekend is finally upon us and festivities are already in full swing in Chicago. While the big show won't be taking place until Saturday night, Starrcast has already begun and there is a lot of action to take in. Wrestlers to meet, live podcasts to watch and listen to, and just any number of big names that you might bump in to.
While we obviously know a lot of what will be going down across All In weekend, including the ten-match card taking place on Saturday night, you can rest assured that there will also be a few surprises. A lot of fans will still be holding out hope that CM Punk will be making an appearance on the show. As of right now, his only involvement this weekend is a signing at the Pro Wrestling Tees store.
Even though a lot of fans would be happy to see Punk show his face at All In, he might not be as welcomed as you'd expect. At a Starrcast event on Thursday, Marty Scurll took to the stage and asked those in attendance whether they think The Second City Saint is the best wrestler in the world. Shockingly, not only was the mention of Punk's name greeted with a chorus of boos, but it was quickly followed up with a Colt Cabana chant.
This is only the latest evidence that Punk's hometown is starting to turn on him. While fans were happy that he and Cabana defeated WWE doctor Chris Amann in court, the news that the Art Of Wrestling host has had to take the former WWE Champion to court over legal fees is not sitting well with Chicago natives. It sounds like more fans are in camp Cabana than are backing Punk.
Even though the mention of Punk's name received a less than favorable reaction from fans at Starrcast you can guarantee two things. One, that there will still be a long line of people waiting to meet him at Pro Wrestling Tees and two, if he does appear at All In the roof will come off of that 10,000 seat arena. Buckle up folks, it is going to be a historic weekend of wrestling.
