5 reasons we still hear CM Punk chants in the WWE

Why is it that we always hear "CM PUNK! CM PUNK!" on episodes of Monday Night Raw? Let's take a look.

Are these chants disrespectful or necessary?

The CM Punk chant is the one chant that seems to attract the most attention from those watching at home. Some fans complain that these chants are disrespectful to the current workers, others say it represents how far the product has fallen off.

CM Punk is, undoubtedly, one of the biggest stars in the WWE of the past 15 years and his absence from the company has left a void that cannot be filled. That's why thousands of fans have refused to accept his departure.

At his peak, he was branded as the voice of the voiceless, however, now he is the one who is voiceless. Despite losing his first UFC bout in humiliating fashion, fans across America still continue chanting the 38-year old's name at WWE live events.
