CM Punk questions why wrestling fans keep watching something they hate

Former WWE Champion CM Punk decided to ask fans as an interesting question on his official Twitter account.

It all started on Thursday where he asked this question by wanting to know why they continue to spend their time on a product they hate as wrestling fans are known to be quite vocal. In his eyes, he left when it got bad and made it known that it worked well for him.

“Since I can’t have fun and tweet about movies or baseball without you telling me about rasslin’, question for you: Why do you spend your time on something you hate? If it’s soooooo bad, leave it. I did. Works wonders. I look forward to the intelligent discourse,” Punk wrote.

Then, writer Mike Asti chimed in with the following: “If you hate the food at a restaurant, you don’t go back. But for some reason, people won’t give up watching something like wrestling, being a fan of a particular sports team or reading/listening to members of the media despite claiming to hate so much.”

This led to Punk responding with, “Imagine going to the movies once a week to see the same movie you hated last week. For years.”

A fan wrote back to him with, “It’s called passion and holding out hope that something that used to be epic will be that way again.”

Punk responded, “It’s called Stockholm syndrome.”

Punk decided to walk out of WWE following the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in 2014. He hasn’t worked a match since then. Since the launch of AEW, there has been speculation that he could join the promotion. Time will tell whether that happens.
