Yesterday, John Cena took part in an interview with The Chicago Tribune. The main focus, of course, was the Money in the Bank pay-per-view being held this Sunday in Chi-Town and the WWE Champion had a lot to elaborate on what he thinks is going to be the best PPV of the year.
The event wasn't the only thing discussed in this interview, as the wrestling fans of Chicago, the hometown of his opponent CM Punk, also crossed the champ's mind. Lamenting back to WrestleMania 22 in Chicago, he remembers the hostility of the crowd.
"Chicago fans greeted me with a ‘f**k you, Cena’ chant,” said the WWE Champion. “Chicago fans cheer and boo who they want. They’re great fans whether they like me or not. They show you how they feel. I don’t like crowds that sit on their hands.”
Expecting nothing less from the Chicago faithful this Sunday at Money in the Bank, Cena implied that he somewhat wants a heel-favored crowd at the Allstate Arena.
“It would make for an interesting moment,” said Cena. “Those are the instances you most remember. CM Punk is truly very proud of his city and I think the city embraces him for it. He wears the Chicago flag on his trunks. Whether it will be more anti-Cena or more pro-CM Punk, I think it will really be great.”
It's also been reported by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the WWE is sold out of all CM Punk merchandise.
