It’s a week of firsts in WWE on the web that you cannot miss. We’ll see you back here on WWE.com for the festivities and daily coverage from Miami.
Wrestlemania is a little more than a week away and at this time you usually see the WWE champion taking a media tour, promoting the “biggest spectacle in sports entertainment.” So if that’s what the champ CM Punk was doing on Wednesday, well that’s a pretty sweet media tour.
Punk, who hails from Chicago, had the opportunity to come onto the ice and take part in the classic intermission game of shooting from center ice, sporting a red Blackhawks sweater — still the best in sports for my money — all the while.

Chicago, IL— March 22, 2012 – Dimo’s Pizza, (3463 N. Clark St.) home of Chicago’s favorite quirky pizza by-the-slice, today announced its pizza special for the week of March 26, 2012. The Anaconda Vice Pizza honors World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) professional wrestler CM Punk, who is the main event in this year’s WWE Wrestlemania, which airs April 1.
A vegan twist on the Brazilian dish feijoada, the Anaconda Vice pizza features a base of slow-cooked black beans topped with Upton’s chorizo seitan, vegan bacon bits, dairy-free cheese, chopped tomatoes, green onions, cilantro and parsley.
“What better way to celebrate CM Punk’s infamous Brazilian Ju-Jitsu submission hold than with a Brazilian-inspired pizza?” asked Celia Rose, Pizza Artist and Specials Coordinator for Dimo’s Pizza. “Like Punk himself, this pizza proves that you don’t need meat to kick ass!”
“I’ll be sharing an Anaconda Vice Pizza with my friends as soon as I get home from Wrestlemania,” stated CM Punk. “It will be my reward for serving Jericho the fat slice of humble pie he deserves.”
The Anaconda Vice special will be available by the slice March 26 – April 1, whole pizzas are also available for delivery and pick up. Also in the works for April 1, a top-secret April Fool’s pizza special.

Zack Ryder from Sky Sports:
“Chris Jericho was one of my favourites growing up and now CM Punk says he’s the best in the world. Jericho says he’s the best in the world, so we’re going to find out at WrestleMania who’s the WWE Champion and who’s the best in the world.
CM Punk right now has taken the WWE by storm. He’s the man right now and he’s definitely the deserving champion. Chris Jericho came back and wants to take that catchphrase back ‘Best In The World’ and we’re going to find out at WrestleMania who that is.”
Kevin Nash from the UK Sun:
“I’d still like to do something with CM Punk in the future. I think we’ve got a chapter that’s still open. Originally it was going to be me and Punk, but it turned out to be me and Hunter. I knew that I wasn’t allowed to go off the script in those promos. I think he had a little more leeway than I did.”
The ultimate interactive WWE fan experience – WrestleMania Axxess – is coming to Miami from March 29 – April 1 at the Miami Beach Convention Center (Hall D). This is one event WWE fans of all ages will want to be part of! (WATCH)
