C.M. Punk DVD screening review: Lita, Colt Cabana, and Cliff Compton appear, Triple H movie spoof, milk and cookies afterward, WWE cameras present
Oct 5, 2012 - 11:15 AM


Dot Net reader Christopher Keiler attended the C.M. Punk "Best in the World" DVD screening in Chicago, Illinois on Thursday and sent the following report.

My friends and I arrived six hours before start time. There were maybe 50 other people in line at the time. The atmosphere was great, as it is always fun to be around that many fans. Around 5:00, WWE relocated the line so that they could shot footage for Raw. We were let inside shortly after 6:00. 

The next half hour was spent watching ads for other WWE products and answering Punk trivia, most of which I got right because I'm pretty awesome. Shortly after 7:00, the theatre was mostly full - maybe 800 to 900 viewers. A local comedian came out and said they had some surprises. First of which being former WWE Women's Champ and current Punk girlfriend, Lita. I freaked out and so did everyone else. She then introduced Domino, from Deuce and Domino, to a mild reaction. They then introduced Colt Cabana to a huge reaction.

Now it was time for the man of the hour. Punk's music hit and the place exploded. He truly is wrestling royalty in Chicago. He got up on stage speechless, claiming to have forgotten the intro he had thought of. He then remembered it and said "A little over a year ago I promised two things - ice cream bars... (Crowd cheers and chants) and CM Punk the movie. I don't have ice cream bars... (Boos) but I do have CM Punk the movie!". He got off the stage only to show footage of Triple H laying in a bed with no shirt from the movie "Inside Out." Punk came back and screamed for it to be taken down while we all laughed.

The Punk DVD was played and it was phenomenal. It was a similar style to the Edge or Steve Austin DVD. I learned many things about him and the indy footage is incredible. I am definitely picking it up Tuesday. After the DVD, Punk sat on stage and said he had more surprises. He brought chocolate milk and giant cookies for everybody. Lita and members of Punk's family started passing out cookies and, of all people, Lita handed me a cookie. I never thought I would see that day.

Punk then opened it up to a Q&A session. I got to ask him what else does he still hope to accomplish. He answered by saying he would like to main event WrestleMania. He was also asked to tell the story about tipping a stripper with a fish sandwich, but declined because there were children present. 

Punk thanked everyone for coming and left with security. Lita, Colt, and Domino were also escorted out. Some people got pics and autographs in the lobby but security rushed them away pretty quickly. Then some people from WWE were interviewing people about their thoughts on the DVD and show, so I decided to do one for them as well because I'm a camera whore. Anyone interviewed had to sign a consent form for the footage to be used on Raw.

Overall, the show was fantastic. This was a first from what I've heard and It's great that Punk does so much for Chicago. If I ever heard of another city doing something like this, I would go cross country to it if I had to. Well worth it. Awesome.
