CM Punk recently in a chat with Sports Illustrated had revealed the reason why he’s doing a signing during the “All In” event weekend in his hometown, Chicago, IL.
According to Punk, he said, “…I’ve always had an extremely passionate fan base. I jumped to the WWE and the perceived notion was I became more successful. I got to touch more people’s lives and influence more people and perform in front of more people, and that was a great thing. I’ve done things, sometimes foolishly misguided, because I wanted to give back to the fans. The entire reason I did a podcast explaining my departure from WWE is because I wanted them to know the story. I had a company going on television trashing me every chance they got and I was being quiet because I was being professional. Here we are now, finally out of the woods. I do recognize the opportunity that there will be a lot of wrestling fans from all over the world coming to Chicago to see a wrestling show, and I can do something to meet some of them if they want to, that we’d never have the chance to do otherwise. I think that’s going to be a fun weekend.”
