Trivia: CM Punk
  • Author Existence Failure:
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: An 8-year-old Punk appeared on the Bozo The Clown show in the mid-80s. The IWC went Squee. He was a snarker even back then.
  • Irony as She Is Cast:
    • Punk's increasingly mad savior character from Straight Edge Society and The Nexus has a lot of creepy religious undertones; real-life Punk is notoriously anti-religious. His response to Teddy Hart saying God made him able to jump off a thirty foot cage?
    "There is no god, and that cage wasn't thirty feet."
    • CM Punk as Satan
      • Which itself was a nod taken Up to Eleven at a line Punk said in the promo that turned him heel and started the original Summer of Punk.
      • Alternatively, it could be a Development Gag alluding to when he got his head shaved by Rey Mysterio. Punk's original concept for the mask (before Vince McMahon made him change it), included devil horns.
  • One of Us:
    • He is a comic reader and self-described nerd.
    • Also, he's a fan of many aspects of pop culture, as he often quotes other media. A good example would be him comparing Laurinaitis to Lumbergh from Office Space without any of the comedy and blasting Lauranitis for being so out of touch.
  • Promoted Fanboy: According to the WWE-produced Best in the World DVD, one of Punk's ex-girlfriends mentioned that Punk is intensely devoted to the wrestling business and being a professional wrestler.
  • Revival by Commercialization: His revival of "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour as a theme in 2011 led to a resurgence of popularity in the iTunes charts, especially in the U.S. and the UK.
  • Romance on the Set: Dated Beth Phoenix as well as Lita. Now engaged to AJ Lee.
