PUNK PRANKS AUDIENCE, HANDS OUT MILK & COOKIES AND MORE: NOTES FROM LAST NIGHT'S PUNK DOCUMENTARY SCREENING

By Mike Johnson on 2012-10-05 09:35:36
The theatrical screening of the CM Punk "Best in the World" documentary was held last night at the Portage Theater in Chicago.

The free screening was sold out with over 1,000 fans, some of whom were let in to stand in the back of the theater.

CM Punk arrived with Amy Dumas, Colt Cabana, and Cliff Compton. WWE had a camera crew on hand to film everything.

Marty DeRose of $5 Wrestling was the host of the evening and spoke for several minutes, before bringing out Dumas. Dumas spoke to the crowd and brought out Compton, who cut a promo about Punk and then brought out Colt Cabana. Cabana then introduced Punk to a huge standing ovation.

Punk thanked everyone for coming and they began to play the film, only it was the most recent Triple H WWE Studios film. The crowd booed that, which was a joke. Punk "apologized for the mistake" and they began playing the documentary.

After the screening, Punk and his friends handed out cookies and milk to the audience, a nod to something Andy Kaufman did after his Carnegie Hall performance.

There was a Q&A as well, so if anyone there would like to send along a recap, please feel free.

Additional Notes: Punk's family was in attendance at the screening....Punk had pizza from Dimo's Pizza, which does the Punk inspired dishes, sent to fans waiting on line over the course of the day....Fans began lining up for the screening at 10 AM yesterday morning.
