Speaking of CM Punk there were a lot of rowdy fans at last night’s NXT tapings, chanting his name and holding up signs. Fan reports claim most of those signs were confiscated.
This is troubling for several reasons, not least because WWE haven’t even officially announced he’s gone. You can’t just airbrush one of the top stars out of the fans’ minds with no explanation.
(Wouldn’t it be a great storyline move to do that with Daniel Bryan? Remove signs and tell the audience not to chant?)
Me and the Suplah hosts discussed the Daniel Bryan Rumble fiasco and whether it was planned or a mistake, in a recent episode:
