WWE Payback Attendance
The announced attendance for WWE Payback was 13,311, a sellout from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.
CM Punk Mentioned
CM Punk was mentioned by Paul Heyman in a show-opening promo at WWE Payback. The promo took place before the WWE United States Championship match, after Sheamus had entered. Heyman told the crowd, as they chanted “CM Punk,” that he wasn’t here tonight. He said Punk was watching the Chicago Blackhawks get their streak broken by the Los Angeles Kings.
The Blackhawks are playing in Game 7 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Western Conference Finals at the nearby United Center in Chicago, IL. Punk is indeed at the game.
