Raw Announcers Joke About CM Punk Chants Prior To Going Live

There is a video of going around of Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and JBL apparently referencing the chants of “CM Punk” prior to this week’s Raw taping in Los Angeles, California.

They joke about changing the chant to “go away” and apparently some feel this is indicative of their feelings towards CM Punk. I’m not sure I agree but you can listen to the audio at this link or embedded in the video below:

We noted here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com how WWE used the CM Punk chants to get heat on The Shield.

    My take wasn’t that they were telling Punk to go away, it was that they were frustrated with the chants. They were telling the chants to go away.

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      Who would think they’re telling Punk to go away from that lol?

      • Zack

        I could see where it could come off that way

  • Gary Robert

    Yes, stop chanting. We want fans that show zero emotion! How dare anyone show appreciation with cheers or frustration and/or disappointment with chants etc etc

    • Vic Jose

      Chant all you want, but pointless chants for a former wrestler are just annoying!

      • jason witten 82

        Here is a thought, maybe people chant punks name to motivate him to come back and compete for his fans…

        • Gary Robert

          or to make it known to WWE higher-ups (ie. Vince, Hunter etc etc) that they should be working harder to appease their stars and get him back for the fans, whose money it is keeps WWE alive as a business, rather than push workers to a position of misery where they want nothing more to do with the business.

    Like the shield using it to get heat i dont have any problem with it. Everyone in wee will no doubt be annoyed at punk because he was given a massive title run, top storylines and a em match with taker yet all that wasnt good enough for him so he went in a huff. People cant say it is because hes hurt cena works hurt all the time.

  • Alain Labatos

    Make em’ pay CHICAGO

  • Chopper

    Punk will return at chicargo raw and set up a fued for mania!! I like wwe but this is so obvious.

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      and who is going to fued with lol? Bryan took Punk’s spot.

      • jason witten 82

        Not true, it will be punk vs triple h, with Vince on punks side for control. Bank on it

        • JR Texx (Jamie)

          You keep telling yourself that lol. If Punk comes back, which I don’t see happening, he will get a match with Kane, if it was HHH v Punk, how would they end the Bryan v HHH thing that they’re starting?

      • Chopper

        Mark my words it will happen right in to main event! Just like to say though i couldnt care if he comes back=

    • Vic Jose

      If you say so

  • Matt

    The fact no one has said anything, especially the outspoken Punk, tells me this is just a work. Remember when he “left” the company as champion, went everywhere with the belt and came back like a week later. Everyone was critical of them not selling it well enough. This is that. He’ll be back.

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      No he wont :D

      • Nick Alicia Calia

        Doesn’t anyone remember that comic con video when Punk said something to the effect of when he’s done he’s done and you’ll never see or him from him again?…… This could very well be him being done…at least with wwe. Not saying he’d waste his time with the likes of tna but he’s still under contract so what’s the point in humoring anything other than waiting his contract out then truly saying whatever he wants to?

    Best walk out in the world!
