- WWE Champion CM Punk was the Grand Marshal for the McDonald's Thanksgiving Parade today. Punk commented on being a part of the parade, writing on his Twitter, "Honor and a pleasure to be Grand Marshall in the #WGN parade. Love this city. Thanks to everybody who came out!"

- Punk was interviewed on WGN this morning during the parade. Punk said that Thanksgiving is his second favorite holiday behind Halloween, noting that Thanksgiving at the Punk house involves lots of food, and he loves food. He was then asked about his upcoming match with the Rock (they didn't mention TLC and basically assumed it would be Rock vs. Punk at Royal Rumble). Punk said that he was going to hurt him, and Rock would go back to doing movie star things after the match while he would continue to do what he does: hurt people.

- The WWE Twitter account posted the following photo of Punk being interviewed by WGN during the parade:
