UPDATE: Despite fans’ claims, HollywoodLife.com has exclusive confirmation that ‘no one was kicked out concerning anything surrounding CM Punk.’
CM Punk shocked the world when he decided to quit the WWE, but it doesn’t sound like his fans are ready to give up on him quite yet. Several Twitter users — who claimed to be in Omaha, Nebraska, for the taping of Monday Night Raw‘s Feb. 3 episode — were allegedly kicked out of the CenturyLink Center for “chanting” about CM Punk.
Here’s a collection of crazed fan tweets, compiled by WrestleZone.com:

‘No Truth’ To Claims That CM Punk Fans Were Kicked Out
HollywoodLife.com reached out to our WWE sources, who deny that anyone was ejected from Monday Night Raw.
“The whole kicking out of fans is just trolling at its best,” the source explains. “No one was kicked out concerning anything surrounding CM Punk. The WWE expected the chants, but they didn’t kick anyone out, as that would have made it worse. There is no truth to it.”
CM Punk Thanks Fans For ‘All The Support’
Regardless of whether or not the fans were actually rejected for their pro-Punk agenda, the former WWE Superstar is clearly grateful for their unwavering support. Here’s the latest tweet sent out by CM Punk, a tribute to his fandom:
Thanks for all the support. Keep being you guys, it’s pretty cool.

Such a nice tweet! I’m starting to think this guy’s not really a “punk” at all.
