With “Monday Night Raw” taking place just outside The Windy City at the Allstate Arena, it was to be expected that the WWE Universe would chant for hometown boy, former WWE champion, and current UFC fighter CM Punk at some point in the program.
Wasting no time, fans started chanting during the opening segment as Stephanie McMahon addressed the audience. Armed and ready for such a thing to happen, McMahon quieted them awfully fast with an epic comeback.
“If you guys could keep that up for about two minutes and 15 seconds, you’d last one second longer than Punk did,” McMahon said, referring to Punk’s loss to fighter Mickey Gall at UFC 203.
Now that’s what you call a first-round knockout.
