not surprising that CM Punk cites the radical Rowdy
Roddy Piper as a childhood influence. After all, Punk
is the embodiment of the anti-establishment, whose
skill at igniting verbal pipe bombs is
rivaled only by Hot Rod himself.
even looks the part of rebel with his too-numerous-to-count
tattoos and body piercings. Yet, he waxes way more
philosophical than his exterior might suggest, and
has shown a diverse set of interests that include
ghost hunting, G.I. Joe and the Straight Edge
movement, a subculture that rejects the use of drugs,
alcohol and a dependency lifestyle.
in-ring repertoire is an assimilation of fighting
styles, all of which were put on full display during
his debut in The Land of the Extreme in 2006. Since
then, Punk has added many accomplishments to his considerable
résumé, including the ECW, WWE, World
Heavyweight, World Tag Team and Intercontinental Championships.
Punk is headlining pay-per-views and hes
doing so in spite of the events of 2011, when he assailed
Mr. McMahon with his blunt opinions about the business
and made a bold promise not to renew his contract
with the company. Punks criticism struck a nerve
with The Chairman who, against his better judgment,
granted The Second City Saint a WWE Championship Match
at WWE Money in the Bank in the Superstars native
city, Chicago. Punk not only beat John Cena to win
that match, but he also absconded with the WWE Championship
as the seconds on his WWE contract ticked down.
for WWE fans everywhere, Punk agreed to re-sign with
WWE weeks later, compelled to return to the ring to
prove that hes the undisputed Best in
the World. The Voice of the Voiceless advocated
on behalf of disenchanted WWE fans who felt the WWE
product was in need of a good (roundhouse) kick in
the teeth. He became two-time WWE Champion, The Second
City Saint proving his mettle by defeating the likes
of Chris Jericho, Alberto Del Rio, Daniel Bryan and
other elite Superstars.
Raws historic 1,000th episode, CM Punk retained
the WWE Championship against John Cena, but refused
to save his opponent from an attack by Big Show. Instead,
The Rock ran to ringside to save Cena, with the champion
slowly retreating to the backstage area. But as soon
as The Great One was about to deliver a colossal Peoples
Elbow to a fallen Show, Punk returned and nailed The
Brahma Bull with a clothesline and GTS.
his indelible impact at Raw 1,000, a bitter Punk made
it known he felt slighted by the WWE Universe as well
as his peers in the locker room, including John Cena.
Punk found an ally on his mission for respect in Paul
Heyman, the founder of the original ECW who is credited
with jump-starting The Second City Saints WWE
career back in 2006. When asked about the nature of
his new association with Heyman, Punks reply
echoed one of the most quoted portions of his infamous
first pipe bomb in July 2011: Im
a Paul Heyman guy.
Punk has the distinction of having the sixth-longest
WWE Championship reign of all time, having held the
title for 434 days before finally losing it to The
Rock at the 2013 Royal Rumble.
At WrestleMania 29, CM Punk will attempt to do what
no one has ever been able to do: defeat the Undertaker
at WrestleMania and end his winning streak.
Straightedge Superstar has taken his thrill for living
the clean life outside of the ring. He was chosen
to pen the introduction to the comic book event of
the year, Marvels Avengers vs. X-Men;
had his first WWE autobiographical DVD Best in the
World shoot to the top of the charts and is on the
cover of the WWE 13 video game. Punk has thrown
out the first pitch Wrigley Field home of his beloved
Chicago Cubs and was the Grand Marshall of the McDonalds
Thanksgiving Day Parade. He has made numerous television
appearances including The Talking Dead, Jimmy Kimmel
Live, Conan, Monster Garage on the Discovery Channel
and Ghost Hunters on Syfy. The music fan also served
as guest- correspondent for FUSE and made appearances
on Major League Baseball, VH1 and Attack of the Show.
CM Punk has also been featured in magazines including
Mens Fitness, Maxim, Spin and Natural Bodybuilding
can be seen each week on USA Networks Monday
Night Raw at 8/7c.
