** During Wrestling/TheUndertaker's big return to the Deadman persona at ''[=WrestleMania=] XX'', Punk was one of the druids who came out ahead of him bearing flaming torches.

** As for in Chicago, where he was practically a full blown [[WildCard Anti Hero Face?]], started off slicked back, got scruffier as the show went on until he looked like a battle weary {{Badass}}, enjoying the fight he had and the fact he got the title in his hometown. Oh, and he shaved the evil looking goatee.

* TallPoppySyndrome: After Punk's UFC debut ended in him [[CurbStompBattle taking an embarrassing beating at the hands of opponent Mickey Gall and tapping out in less than 2 minutes,]] the triumphant crowing from his haters could be heard ringing all across the net. Punk's enemies reveled in this "proof" that Punk was a no-talent wimp, to the point of disregarding the fact that Gall is actually a ''really good fighter,'' still undefeated in his professional career, whose first opponent had lasted only 39 seconds longer than Punk before tapping out to the exact same move, and whose second one had tapped out ''29 seconds faster than Punk.'' While it's true that the [[AntiClimax anticlimactic result of the bout]] was a bit of a letdown after 2 years of build-up and that Punk had possibly received an unjustified amount of attention (and money) considering it was his debut, a ''lot'' of people were obviously just ecstatic to see him fail.

* ImportantHaircut:ImportantHaircut: Punk debuted in the WWE sporting long, jet-black hair, with it being a integral part of his gimmick during his "Straight Edge Savior" angle. Then he was shaved bald by ReyMysterio in a wager match, this being the first in a series of events which would reshape his character into being the "Best In The World."

* {{Leitmotif}}: "Miseria Cantare" - AFI in ROH[=/=]FIP, prior to "Cult of Personality" anyway.

to:

* {{Leitmotif}}: Punk has used various entrance themes for the entirety of his Professional Wrestling career, including "Miseria Cantare" - Cantare (The Beginning)" by AFI in ROH[=/=]FIP, prior to Ring of Honor and "This Fire Burns" by Killswitch Engage for the first half of his WWE career. Nonetheless, he is best identified with Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" anyway.Personality," as he used it on the most defining moments of his career in both ROH and WWE (the "Summer of Punk" angles), and most recently, in the UFC.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** CM Punk legitimately lives a UsefulNotes/StraightEdge lifestyle, spurred by the hatred of his father's drunken wastedness, and this eventually became the basis for his career-defining gimmick.
** Also, CM Punk's winning Ring of Honor's world title in what was said to be his last scheduled match before leaving for WWE; instead of telling fans that he had more appearances scheduled before his actual departure, ROH let Punk lead the fans on that he was going to steal the title, take it to WWE with him, and break the title's line of succession. He even went so far as to sign ''his WWE contract'' on the belt in one of his most infamous promos.
** Rumors of him not resigning with WWE led to an angle similar to the one in Ring of Honor in which Punk has vowed to take the WWE title with him in exile upon defeating John Cena at ''Money in the Bank 2011''. (Which he ''did''.)
** Potentially a WorkedShoot, but his feud with Wrestling/JeffHardy has many, many elements of this, Punk brought up some extremely reasonable points when pointing out the enabling nature of the fans and Jeff towards each other.
** In WWE, there are a multitude of references towards Punk being extremely gifted in the women department, references that (by all accounts) are all true.
** Punk's ECW World Championship win occurred ''when'' it did because Wrestling/JohnMorrison was about to go on a suspension due to violating the Wellness Policy. It's [[WildMassGuessing believed]] that his initial Money in the Bank win happened under similar circumstances, as Wrestling/JeffHardy (whom WWE was pushing as their next big face at the time) did the same thing and missed ''[=WrestleMania=]'' because of it.

* FollowTheLeader: Darts player and CM Punk {{Fanboy}} Paul Nicholson has to this to a tee. Just compare this video of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvArL38BuGo Nicholson's walk-on]] to Punk's entrance at Money in the Bank 2011 and it's practically a carbon copy. Past entrances also include wearing a [[Wrestling/TheNexus Nexus]]-branded scarf, coming out to "We Are One" (Nexus' entrance theme), and having Xs drawn on his hand like Punk.

* UnwantedAssistance: This is the problem he's been having with Raw GM John Laurinaitis. In the gauntlet match on ''Raw'' at the end of 2011 with Dolph Ziggler, Punk has Ziggler pinned, but the ref is talking with Laurinaitis, who came out and "fairly" removed Swagger and Vickie Guerrero from ringside for earlier interference, ''during'' the match. Punk goes to ward him off, only to get Zig-Zagged by Dolph for the 1-2-3, which earns him a WWE Title match the following week. In that match, Punk has Ziggler locked in the Anaconda Vice and tapping, only for the ref to miss it again because the Raw GM is "dutifully" instructing the man to replace a turnbuckle pad that came loose during the match.
** This has resulted in Laurinaitis installing himself as the special referee for the Punk-Ziggler title rematch at Royal Rumble, and the PrecisionFStrike of a warning delivered above.
** After being warned that he would be stripped of the his title if Wrestling/TheShield interfered in his match against The Rock at the Royal Rumble, he called them out on Smackdown, and told them not to get involved, saying they stood for justice, and it would be a great injustice if Punk lost the title.
