There’s a lot being made of the crowd reactions at Thursday night’s WWE NXT tapings from the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida following the current situation with CM Punk walking out on WWE. I spoke with Wrestling News World’s Scott Brooks, who was in attendance at the tapings, about the situation on Friday afternoon and here’s what he told me:
Backlash over CM Punk was evident at the taping with a handful of signs being confiscated. The name “CM Punk” was chanted throughout the majority of the show, with fans showing their support “in protest.”
Scott told me there was nothing overly notable in terms of a show disruption, just at times a couple of Punk chants would breakout during the matches.
I was told it was nothing like the reactions that broke out for Daniel Bryan during the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between Randy Orton and John Cena at Royal Rumble last Sunday.
