    That'd be over 11k tickets sold. Bit of a feat honestly.

    Rey added to the card.


    Wonder if they could lure punk out of retirement even for one night.

    Surely that's something you'd want to advertise before tickets go on sale.

    He’s Appearing at the All In' Autograph Signing.

    He’s going to be on that show in some way.

    Whether or not he actually appears on the show, it's still a huge step for Punk fans.

    First wrestling related appearance in almost 5 years by the time September comes around.

    Forgot CM Punk even existed. Isn't he meant to be doing another UFC fight or something? He mightn't be in the best condition to do this meet and greet if he has permanent brain damage.

    Zahra Schreiber (Seth Rollins' ex) and Sonya Deville are now dating in case anyone cares.

    Gotta blame Seth for turning her the other to be honest. I think I know what the LITTLE problem might have been.

    Been watching WWE the last 8 months way the wee man, got him into and he's addicted now ... Forever spending hours on that wrestling game on the PS4.

    Must say though, a honestly think it is absolute * compared to the Attitude Era. The PG brand ovbiously gives them a bigger audience but it's no where near as good. I fall asleep half the time watching it.

    Probably just nostalgia from me though, and can't see past the good old days from when I was young

    5-year, $1billion deal for Smackdown to move to Fox next year.

    This is the ultimate boom period for wrestling, financially.

    Been reading about that, it's silly money, ignoring conversion it's like Sky payinh £1 billion for the epl.

    It's insane money just for the. "B" brand, gonna be some massive changes though as its being moved to a Friday.
