CM Punk competed in his first WWE match in nearly a decade last night (December 26) during the company’s annual post-Christmas visit to New York’s Madison Square Garden. It became the talk of the wrestling web, with videos or photos of everything Punk – and his opponent Dominik Mysterio, his opponent Mamí Rhea Ripley, the crowd, other members of the roster – did or said, being shared and discussed on social networks. .and sites like this.
