CM Punk’s unconventional microphone antics and unique wrestling style made him one of WWE’s greats. Although many did not expect CM Punk to succeed when he made his debut in 2006 for the ECW brand, he quickly managed to become the brand’s top name and even captured the ECW championship in just one year.
While capturing the ECW Championship would be one of the greatest moments in CM Punks wrestling career, the pinnacle of his career would come at Wrestlemania XXIV when he won the Money in the Bank ladder match. Punk would later cash in the briefcase several months down the line to win his first-ever WWE World Championship gold.
The formation of The Straight Edge Society which consisted of Serena, Joey Mercury, and Luke Gallows was also another significant highlight in CM Punk’s WWE career. Apart from getting the most out of the Rock, CM Punk also came close to breaking Undertaker’s undefeated streak, a feat that very few wrestlers have managed to achieve.
Before his sudden departure from the WWE, it was quite clear that CM Punk’s love for wrestling had slowly fizzled out. However, despite all this, CM Punk still managed to give wrestling fans some breathtaking matches in his final year as a pro-wrestler.
