Punk certainly moved the needle with his comeback. While many fans say he broke the compass, many say he didn’t. However, he certainly broke the Pro wrestling Tee website multiple times. After his walk to the ring, Punk subtly referenced him being overwhelmed by the heat.

It is unreal when you sell out an arena with over 15,000 people on just speculation. It just seems the comeback and the ice cream bars weren’t the only gifts Punk came bearing. CM Punk broke the record for most T-shirts sold in a day on Pro Wrestling Tees. Previously, the Icon, Sting held the record when he returned in December.

Then the sad demise of Brodie Lee catapulted a lot of tee sales towards the end of December. Punk not only crossed them rather comfortably, it resulted in the site crashing multiple times. He did a lot more, as Pro Wrestling Tees had to announce that they were out of shirts to print on.
