One cult favorite part of WWE’s 2011 “Summer of Punk” was CM Punk’s demand Vince McMahon bring back the old WWF-era ice cream bars. The company eventually did, but Punk was gone... and they were actually ice cream sandwiches.
It was just another disappointing element of the Punk/WWE relationship.
For his return to pro wrestling on the Aug. 20 episode of Rampage, AEW & Punk followed up on that dangling plot thread. The Best in the World offered a post-script to his opening promo, telling the packed house at the United Center in his home town of Chicago:
“One more thing. Seven years is an awful long time to wait for somebody. I appreciate everybody here who has waited. So on your way out of the United Center tonight, grab yourself a free ice cream bar on me.”
And that was a shoot, ladies and germs...
Pretty cool, indeed. A man of his word, that Phil Brooks.
No word on how they tasted, but I’m pretty sure no one at “The First Dance” complained.
