** A common accusation from ringside commentators (and some RealLife critics) is that Punk has a cult-like hold over his fans, and even fans in general, particularly since they often cheer for him even when he is playing a despicable heel, an UngratefulBastard or even the kind of insufferable [[TheFundamentalist preachy fanatic]] that wrestling fans normally despise.

* AntiHero: Whenever he is a face but most notable during 2011 where he feuded with Vince [=McMahon=], Triple H and John Laurinaitis. His rebellious nature against authority figure is what make fans compared him with Stone Cold Steve Austin.

* AuthorAvatar: As [[Wrestling/LondonAndKendrick Paul London]] pointed out, making him a booker while he was in Ohio Valley was counter productive, [[Wrestling/JohnLaurinaitis although it wasn't Punk's fault]] and he wasn't the only wrestler the task was delegated to while they were supposed to be developing as wrestlers. ''If'' such wrestlers were going to be bookers, using one who had already wrestled on TV and Pay Per View did make sense.
