The Chicago Tribune is featuring an interview with WWE Champion John Cena who talks about expecting a very hostile crowd this Sunday in Chicago, Illinois at the Money in the Bank PPV where he will defend his title against CM Punk.
"Chicago fans greeted me with a '(Expletive) you, Cena' chant. 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. 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."
Cena also discusses the frustration of how WWE operates in the storyline involving CM Punk and how others like MVP voice a similar opinion before moving on.
"Here's a guy (Punk) who literally is a pure-bred wrestler, who loves the business and loves being able to go out and compete. I can understand his frustration. But you can't ignore the attraction of The Rock being involved. I know he's not going to leave wrestling. He's leaving WWE. There's a difference. CM Punk doesn't feel he's been treated properly in WWE. We've had this problem before. MVP was another one who felt he wasn't treated well and has gone on to have a prolific career in Japan. Same with A-Train. I have more respect for a guy who leaves the company to better himself in another territory. But all roads lead back to Rome. If you're successful, you'll find your way back."
