It’s very easy to tell that WWE fans miss CM Punk dearly. Each and every week when you tune into RAW, you can clearly hear the fans in attendance chanting his name at various times throughout the shows, and Paul Heyman, on of his closest friends recently offered up an explanation for this.
In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Heyman went into great detail about why the WWE Universe misses Punk so much. And of course, as with anything that Heyman explains, it made a ton of sense.
“It’s a very difficult break-up when an audience loses its ability to thrust its adulation upon their hero. CM Punk clearly established during his time as a Paul Heyman Guy that he was, as the billing suggested, The Best In The World.
“So when he abruptly disappears and the audience doesn’t have the ability to say goodbye or shower him with their affection, then it causes a situation. It causes the audience to miss him even more vociferously, because they never had the closure of letting him know how much they appreciate his hard work.”
It would be nice to see the fans be able to give him the respect that he deserves for his hard work in the ring. However, it also needs to be pointed out, as it usually is, that Punk was the one that walked out on them. That’s the main argument that people bring up when talking about Punk’s departure.
