The ice cream bars given to the fans at the United Center was all CM Punk.
Fans who attended AEW Rampage The First Dance on August 20 were not only treated to the return of CM Punk to pro wrestling, they were given a free ice cream bar as they left the building courtesy of Pretty Cool Ice Cream.
In a post on social media, Pretty Cool Ice Cream revealed that Punk himself paid for the ice cream bars and he had the idea to do this two years ago.
The big moment- when @cmpunk thanks his fans for waiting, and to grab some ice cream on him. Were you there?!
Since we have been getting a lot of questions, yes the ice cream was on him- it wasn’t a publicity stunt dreamed up by promoters. He came to us on his own and asked us to help him do this 2 years ago, and finally the moment was right. Our small team worked tirelessly to hand make every bar, and CM Punk wrote the check for the entire bill himself.
That’s some real Chicago love right there, city of big shoulders, and big heart
Speaking during a media call following AEW Rampage, CM Punk expressed what the ice cream bars meant to him.
