CM = "Comedy Master"? Probably not, but these moments could possibly make you believe so.
His shoots with Samoa Joe are the stuff of legend, especially the one about the night Homicide got drunk. "I GOTTA PEE, YO!"
From an episode of NXT: Punk and William Regal both agreeing on Daniel Bryan being a better wrestler than his "pro," The Miz, behind The Miz's back (with Punk even holding his arms up and going "this much!").
CM Punk is a guest announcer on the September 21 2010 edition of NXT. This in and of itself is gloriously hilarious, but specifically when one of the Divas is talking about the old "view people in their underwear" public speaking trick as part of a promo challenge, and Punk responds with this:
You know, it's funny, I'm actually Not Wearing Pants, and that's how I watch NXT every week.
CM Punk was golden on commentary during the later part of 2010. From his reading of the anonymous GM's email, to his excitement at winning his Slammy, to his confusion as to who Eve Torres was when the other commentators brought her up.
On the December 6, 2010 edition of Raw, John Cena was clearing the announce table to put Wade Barrett through it. Punk was concerned over Cena spilling his diet soda as he did so the previous week when he did it to Heath Slater. Cena gently hands Punk his diet soda before he finishes clearing the table and Punk tosses it in disgust. Later, Cena handed him one of his arm bands and Punk almost immediately chucked it back at him.
Earlier in the night, the GM sent a message while Michael Cole was in the ring, meaning Punk got to read the message. For once, the audience didn't piss all over the segment. As a matter of fact, they even chanted his name. Punk proceeded to subtly but surely mock Cole's self-important delivery style.
"I HAVE RECEIVED AN EMAIL!"
Punk was doing commentary on an intense match between Samoa Joe and the Necro Butcher after it had become public knowledge that he was going to WWE. When asked for a wrestler's perspective on how he would react to a situation in the ring, Punk said he would sign a developmental contract and run away.
His second demand? "I want my face on EVERYTHING! Including the turnbuckles!"
Just imagine turnbuckles with Punk's free floating head with goofing smile on them. You're welcome.
During the early part of Punk's WWE match with John Cena in Chicago at Money in the Bank 2011, the partisan CM Punk crowd began chanting, "You can't wrestle!"— a common chant directed at Cena in situations where the crowd's vehemently against him. Punk actually responded to the crowd. "Who, me?" "NOOOOO!" "Oh, him?" "YEAAAAH!" "Oh, okay."
And after that match was over, Alberto Del Rioon Vince McMahon's orders tried to cash in the briefcase he had just won earlier that night. Just when Vince and everyone else thought they knew where this was going, Punk kicked Del Rio in the back of the head and knocked him out cold - then ran out through the crowd with the title belt...while Vince proceeded to have a Villainous Breakdown.
The title belt would make another appearance around midnight...in Punk's fridge.
Punk told the story of the Belt in the Fridge at a Con. He drove right home after the Money In The Bank PPV, practically dived into his home since he was exhausted, sweating and thirsty, he opened his fridge to find some water and at this point the title was literately starting to drag him down (keep in mind that the belt is a lot heavier than it looks), as soon as he located a bottled water, he lobbed the title in the fridge. It took him a few moments to realise the hilarity of the situation and posted it on twitter.
August 1, 2011: Triple H announces that CM Punk and John Cena's title feud will be settled at Summerslam before leaving the two to their own devices. So Punk removes his belt and raises it victoriously to his theme music. Cena responds by raising his own belt, cutting off Punk's music. Not to be outdone, Punk raises his belt higher, cutting off Cena's music. The next few minutes are spent with the two constantly trying to out-do each other in pops, the audio alternating every few seconds between Punk and Cena's theme songs.
"Hey, you wanna see the message my little sister sent me? (pulls out cell phone, reads) 'OMG Kevin Nash WTF thought he was dead LOL'."
"Don't answer this; it's a rhetorical question. If Triple H asked you to jump off a building would you? Because I think that would be good for business.
While in the ring with Nash and HHH at the start of the August 29, 2011 Raw, he said that, in their cases, the word "Clique" meant the sound their (often surgically-repaired) knees made when they walked, and the sound people's remote controls made when they appeared on television.
Punk's reaction to this was priceless. He looks down at the chair and looks back at Del Rio like "Seriously? That's what you're going with?" before throwing it back.
CM Punk's contract signing with Alberto Del Rio and The Miz. Del Rio runs down all his accomplishments throughout the year, but CM Punk cuts him off right at the end with a massive Shut Up, Hannibal!moment:
CM Punk: What? (Stone Cold glares at Punk) Steve Austin: A shot of whiskey? CM Punk: What? Steve Austin: Vodka? CM Punk: What? Steve Austin: Anything?! (pause) CM Punk: What?
Piece of advice for The Miz: When handcuffing CM Punk, like during the WWE Championship TLC match, make sure to cuff his feet, or he will kick your head-whoops, never mind!
This article has a collection of some of the more outlandish stuff that happens at house shows and after the show goes off the air. Punk is clearly having a little too much fun when the cameras are off.
CM "Drunk" rants takes a sobriety test.
CM Punk: This whole thing's ridiculous, Teddy and you know it's ridiculous. (to Jericho) You know its.. you're not even cool, it's ridiculous. You have police officer's out here. John Laurinaitis knows it's ridiculous I know it's ridiculous. And the entire WWF Universe knows this is ridiculous.
This is more of a CMoF for the crowd, but when Chris Jericho called out Punk for seeing him go into an English pub, he retaliates by saying "I can't go to a pub in merry ol' England and have some fish and chips with a friend of mine?!". The crowd cheers and then very appropriately starts chanting "FISH AND CHIPS! FISH AND CHIPS!"
When taking audience questions during his panel at the 2012 Wizard World convention in Philladelphia, Punk is asked a very simple question - "Are you going to get rid of John Cena's stupid spinner belt?". Cue the crowd & Punk bursting into laughter... Mostly because the question came from a kid, part of Cena's target demographic!
During the buildup to the Raw 1000th episode, Punk and other WWE wrestlers were in a commercial for the USA network to advertise the new starting time for Raw. At the beginning, Vince McMahon tells John Cena to let everyone know that now Raw starts at eight. Cena has earbuds in and doesn't hear the whole message, and so passes down the next best thing to everyone else. Punk gets the word in the office:
* The commercial ends with a shot of CM Punk standing in the middle of a rocky desert, wearing his ring gear, holding the WWE championship belt and a suitcase, looking around at a herd of goats and alpacas *
On the RAW before Survivor Series (11/15/12), the main event was Punk vs. Cena. Cena won via interference from Ryback - or more like Punk tried to bail on the match only to have Ryback throw him back into the ring to eat an Attitude Adjustment. Cena and Ryback both put their hands on the WWE Title at the same time, leading to an epic staredown. Meanwhile, Punk, who's rolled out of the ring, tries to come back in to grab his belt. As soon as he gets to the apron, he gets a double Death Glare from both Cena and Ryback. He climbs down from the apron and you hear him say (in a whiny voice appropriate to a toddler who's been told to share his toys): "But... that's mine."
