CM Punk Introduces Chicago Blackhawks In Home Opener Video

CM Punk introduced the Chicago Blackhawks in a video before their home opener on Saturday night.

The Chicago Blackhawks welcomed the (Las) Vegas Golden Knights to the United Center on Saturday night. Punk narrated the opening video package for this season’s Blackhawks team.

Punk is a diehard hockey fan, and he was expected to be in attendance for the game.

What’s the value?

Booker T and Brad Gilmore discussed the rumors Punk is on his way to WWE on The Hall Of Fame. Booker agreed that it would create buzz now, but questioned the long-term value Punk could add by bringing him back in.

“This is my question: at this point in time, right now, when everything is going so great — not just from an in-ring perspective and an out-of-ring perspective as well as far as the company is doing great — what does CM Punk add to WWE right now at this point,” Booker asked. “What does CM Punk add to WWE?”

“Now, let’s look at it from this perspective right here; if CM Punk had worked his contract in AEW and it was coming up and CM Punk didn’t sign with AEW and WWE actually got in and got him and boom… I think we would have something,” Booker pointed out. “But CM Punk, he didn’t just leave WWE; he got fired from WWE. He didn’t just leave AEW, he got fired with cause from AEW. What value does a person like that bring to your company? I mean, I’m just being honest here.”

Booker said that people will respond by arguing that Punk fans will love the move, but it doesn’t mean much from a bigger picture perspective.

“The fans that love him didn’t bump the ratings that much on AEW where it was that much more significant than it was before he actually got there. Am I right or wrong? So, can somebody please enlighten me; what is the win in getting Punk?”
