This Sunday at WWE’s Night of Champions, WWE Champion CM Punk will have the opportunity to, as John Cena put it, “define [his] existence” by defeating the master of the Five Knuckle Shuffle before Cena’s hometown crowd in Boston, Massachusetts. Promoting their pay-per-view encounter, the Straight Edge Superstar cut a promo on Twitter Wednesday afternoon asking whether Boston has any pride in Cena.
Punk wrote, “#wwenoc this Sunday @johncena in his hometown vs me, the best wrestler in the world. I don’t like johns chances…
“I don’t think his own hometown of Boston does either. Chicago treats champions with respect. Will Boston? I promise a fight. #WWENOC
“By the way. Anytime I’ve wrestled @johncena in a main event on PPV, it’s been sold out. Will Boston step up and pack the Garden?
“Does Boston even have any pride in their hometown hero @johncena ? Does Boston have any pride at all? #WWENOC
“The champion should be in the main event. However I’ll take my quality over @johncena quantity.#WWENOC main event. Can’t wait. #kneestofaces.”
