Seven-time World Champion CM Punk returned home to Chicago to sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the seventh inning stretch at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night. The sixth-longest reigning WWE Champion of all-time put an Anaconda Vice-grip on the microphone and belted out a performance Cubs fans seemed to enjoy during a game against the Milwaukee Brewers, that eventually ended in a 3-2 loss to the Central Division rival.

Punk made sure no fans in attendance would Go to Sleep during his rendition of the time-honored tradition at the Friendly Confines by proclaiming to the citizens of Chicago that he came to the game to "chew bubble gum and sing," and that he was "all out of bubble gum," prior to providing vocal delights to the 31,638 in attendance.
Wrestling fans at the ballpark received an added bonus, as the Cubs gave away Lucha Libre masks to fans in the Budweiser Bleachers.
This was CM Punk's third trip to Wrigley Field in as many years, as he also threw out the ceremonial first pitch during a Cubs-Marlins game on July 15, 2011 and then again last season on May 8, 2012 during a meeting between the Cubs and Braves.
NBC and WWE join forces to bring WrestleMania 29 to network television on Saturday, Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. in a one-hour broadcast that features the WWE Championship match between The Rock and John Cena. In an earlier match at WrestleMania 29, CM Punk was defeated by The Undertaker, who extended his perfect record at the event to 21-0.
