CM PunkWWE Champion CM Punk has been appearing all morning on WGN Chicago as he plays the role of Grand Marshal for the 2012 Thanksgiving Day parade! 

Although it is difficult to see in this picture, Punk has been holding the WWE Championship belt all morning, answering questions about his year long title reign, facing the Rock at the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view and more!

Although Wrestlezone reported Tuesday about Punk's unhappiness with the WWE after they failed to promote his appearances this week, WGN is an affiliate of the Tribune and is broadcast around the country; this is obviously very good mainstream exposure for Punk and the WWE.
