* CheshireCatGrin: During the October 10th, 2011 episode of ''Raw'', Triple H, with vastly limited resources due to the 51-person walkout, makes a match between John Cena and Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}, two of three Superstars remaining on the show, with himself as ref. Punk, rightfully, feels left out, until Trips points out there's an empty announce table with Punk's name on it. You can see Punk's face light up at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fB2i3f5qH3U 18:33]]. He got tobe the timekeeper, too. For double pay!

* CombatPragmatist: Hydro's punishment for calling CM Punk out was to have his shirt taken and his legs tied together while Punk mercilessly kicked him. Luckily for Hydro Punk respected enough of the code to be stopped by the ref.



** He did an elbow drop on Ricky Steamboat in 2004 as Randy Savage had in 1985.

** He dismissed Colt Cabana from The Second City Saints tag team title defense at ''ROH Survival Of The Fittest'', opting to face three other teams ''and'' their managers alone, so Cabana, who had advanced in the first round of the tournament, could have a better chance at winning the whole thing. It wasn't to be, as Cabana couldn't stop American Dragon, but it's the thought that counts.

* AntiVillain: CM Punk was almost always irritable and seemed to have a visceral hatred for everything, but he did still follow the ROH {{code|ofhonor}}, at least publicly (breaking behind the backs of any relevant parties was fair game). That made him public refusal to follow it in regards to Raven that much more noticeable.

* DefeatMeansFriendship: Of a sort; Punk was one of the first people against Triple H becoming COO and there was at least a month of build-up of their feud. Following his defeat at ''Night of Champions'', Punk came out the night after and admitted that Hunter wasn't part of the conspiracy like he originally suspected; and that he was somewhat in the dark on the matter, that being he suspected Wrestling/JohnLaurinaitis, and Triple H also allayed Punk's complaints by giving him what he deserved, a WWE Championship match without outside interference (albeit Hell in the Cell, but Punk wasn't picky).

** {{Subverted|trope}} at ''ROH Survival Of The Fittest''. Punk's one man victory against The Outkast Killaz, The Ringcrew Express and Special K was enough to get [[Wrestling/JayLethal Hydro]] to recognize the CodeOfHonor Special K usually defied, but Punk wasn't ready to return it and made a point of showing how much Hydro would have to improve before he would.

* PetTheDog: Repeatedly taking a beatdown from Wrestling/{{Kane}}, who was targeting him as being guilty for attacking Wrestling/TheUndertaker. Why is this PetTheDog? Punk had an alibi, but didn't want to reveal that Serena had been caught breaking her pledge to the Straight Edge Society (he forgave her the following week, though).

Added DiffLines:

* YouAreNotReady: Since he couldn't get his rematch with Samoa Joe and wasn't even winded from his tag team title defense at ''Survival Of The Fittest'', Punk demanded that ROH hold him over with stiffer competition. When Hydro challenged him to a one on one match in response, Punk said Hydro was not on his level but ended up taking the challenge anyway to prove it, letting the contest continue on three separate occasions Punk could have ended it.

* {{Badass}}: As much as he can be a whiny, lying, preachy and obnoxious jackass, Punk is a very talented and badass wrestler.



* BadassPreacher: As the leader of the Straight Edge Society.

* BadassPreacher: As Especially as the leader of the Straight Edge Society.Society, but this could apply to him in general as a wrestler whether he was talking straightedge, love of wrestling, or his own greatness. As much as he could be a whiny, lying, preachy and obnoxious jackass, Punk was very talented and badass enough to put action to his yapping.

** You can argue that Punk himself became this to WWE's ECW in 2007. Initially Punk was regarded as a young, rising star with potential, while the ECW title scene was dominated by Wrestling/BobbyLashley and his ilk. But then Lashley started feuding with Vince and moved to ''Raw'', and Punk became the center of the ECW Originals vs New Breed storyline -- in which it became increasingly more obvious that the storyline was to put him (and only him) over. Then his ECW title chase/reign dominated the show for the rest of the year and into early 2008. That being said, this wasn't necessarily a ''bad'' thing. Punk was by far and away the most popular wrestler there, and it can be argued that him and the then-newly christened Wrestling/JohnMorrison were the only reasons why anyone would watch the show at all, especially considering how WWE's ECW was a pale imitation (one might even say bastardization) of the original ECW (coincidentally, Punk wouldn't have been out of place in the original ECW, probably owing to his popularity amongst the hardcore fans). He essentially carried the show, and if it hadn't been for him, it wouldn't have lasted as nearly as long as it did, which would be detrimental as WWE's ECW was a launching platform for much of the younger talent. A similar thing happened when Wrestling/{{Christian}} returned in 2009 and carried it through its last year -- without him, there wouldn't have been a Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}.

In addition to professional wrestling, Punk has also dabbled in writing ComicBooks, most notably penning a story in ''Thor Annual'' #1 and the upcoming ''[[GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Drax]]'' ongoing series at MarvelComics,

* ArtifactTitle: The CM part of his name, which was from when he was in a tag tam called the Chick Magnets, with a wrestler called CM Venom. Nowadays it basically has whatever meaning Punk comes up with when asked.
