That’s very him. We are officially done with one of the biggest wrestling weekends of the year and arguably the biggest story of the weekend was CM Punk making his AEW debut. It was a very emotional moment and included one of the greatest reactions that you will ever see. Part of that was due to a special bonus that Punk threw in, and now we know a pretty cool detail about what happened.
At the end of Punk’s speech, he announced that everyone in the United Center was going to get a free ice cream bar on the way out of the arena. Ice cream was indeed provided for everyone in the arena, with over 15,000 fans in attendance. The ice cream came in a special wrapper and were provided by Pretty Cool Ice Cream. The company has now offered a little more information about the whole thing.
In a post on Instagram, Pretty Cool Ice Cream has revealed a few details about the ice cream. Punk did in fact pay for the ice cream himself, personally writing the check to the ice cream company. This has been in the works for over two years, with Punk saying that he would tell them when he was ready to make it happen. This was a reference to a moment in WWE, when Punk said that he wanted a return of the WWE ice cream bars, which never took place.

This was pretty awesome. Check out Punk’s debut, plus what he had to say and what inspired the whole thing:
Opinion: The more I’ve watched Punk’s return, the cooler it has become. This takes it to another level though, as the idea that Punk actually paid for the ice cream, paying off a line that he said (possibly as an ad libbed joke) ten years ago, makes it all the better. The whole thing was great and this makes it all the sweeter. I’ve liked Punk for a long time and this made it that much better.
