Challengers Comics had an event in Chicago on Saturday, and CM Punk made a rare public appearance to promote his new Thor comic book. In a sign that his popularity is still massive, the line of fans waiting to see him wrapped around three blocks. Many stood in 15 degree temperature for hours just for the opportunity to meet and greet the former WWE and current UFC star. Camera crews were filming the event for a documentary.

For WWE stars, the ability to handle the media can play a pivotal role in how far you get in the company. A former reality television star ended up as the world heavyweight champion once because he is beyond gifted with public appearances. Seth Rollins has recently been praised by those backstage for how he handled questions during an interview regarding CM Punk. Rollins stated that the locker room would accept Punk if he ever decided to return.

Prior to the big UFC announcement, CM Punk was being courted by another promotion. He had received a call from Ring of Honor, his former home, to see if he was interested in making a return. The former world heavyweight champion was not interested in being a full time professional wrestler at this point, so he declined. ROH reportedly attempted to get him to make a couple of appearances, but he declined that invitation as well.
