Vince McMahon not ruling out Wrestlemania return to Chicago, unperturbed by Punk chants
It’s been over a year since CM Punk walked out of the company. However it seems his fans haven’t forgotten about him, for it is seen whenever there is a dead-spot during a WWE show, fans would resort to chant the former WWE champion’s name.
Punk joined the UFC about five months after walking out of the company putting rest to any news of his impending this past December, thus closing the door on WWE-at least for the time being. Even after this, his fans are holding out hope that the straight-edged superstar would return to the squared circle one day.
One would think the WWE management, especially the Chairman of the Board, Vince McMahon are sick of hearing Punk’s name being chanted by the WWE fans. But the man at the top suggests otherwise and he is not sick of it. Vince was recently inducted into the Boys & Girls Club Hall Of Fame held in Chicago, Punk’s hometown. On being asked by Chicago Tribune that whether he’s sick of hearing fans chanting Punk’s name, he replied by saying “No”.
McMahon was also asked whether Wrestlemania would return to Chicago, and McMahon didn’t rule it out. It is rumoured that the company has a policy of seeking massive arena’s and warmer climates for April and in the past many thought owing to climatic conditions WWE would not bring Wrestlemania to Chicago. But McMahon ruled out weather being an issue because they’ve brought Wrestlemania to colder cities in the past and it hasn’t been a problem.
“I wouldn’t say Chicago is out of the running. We can do colder environments. We went to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. People wear coats to football. Why won’t they were jackets and so forth to WrestleMania? They will. Chicago will definitely be in the running in the future.”
