CM Punk is a professional wrestler.
CM Punk (Philli Jack Brooks) is a seven-time World Champion, having held the ROH World Championship and ECW Championship once each, WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship three times, and the WWE Championship twice. Punk has also won the World Tag Team Championship with Kofi Kingston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship, making him the 19th WWE Triple Crown Champion and the fastest man in WWE history to achieve this record at 203 days. Between WWE and Ring of Honor, where he is a two-time World Tag Team Champion, Punk has won a total of 11 championships. CM was also the winner of the 2008 and 2009 Money in the Bank ladder matches, making him the only wrestler to win the match twice in a row. Furthermore, Punk was the 2011 Superstar of the Year Slammy Award winner.
Punk initially came to prominence through his career on the professional wrestling independent circuit, primarily as a member of the ROH roster. There, CM was the first head trainer of the ROH wrestling school. Also while competing in ROH, Punk won both the company’s championships. In 2005, Punk signed a contract with WWE and was sent to its developmental house, Ohio Valley Wrestling, where he won every championship available in that promotion. On June 24, 2006, Punk made his WWE television debut, performing in ECW, which was then a branch of WWE. Throughout his career, Punk has consistently used the gimmick of being an outspoken, sharp-tongued, and straight edge iconoclast. Punk’s straight edge principles are based on his actual way of life out of character. Depending on Punk’s alignment as a fan favorite or villain, he has emphasized different aspects of the culture to arouse the desired audience reaction.
CM Punk made his video game debut in WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2008 and has also been a playable character in WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2009, WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2010, WWE All Stars, WWE SmackDown vs Raw 2011, WWE ’12, and WWE 2K14, as well as being the video game cover star for WWE ’13. Punk appeared at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con and at the 2012 Wizard World Comic Con where he hosted a Q&A session. CM Punk was scheduled to appear at the 2014 Wizard World Portland Comic Con on January 24, 2014. In early 2015, he’s expected to star in the Warner Bros.
