This year we saw so many new young guys get pushed to levels we thought wouldn't come for years. Ziggler, Ryder, Rhodes, Barrett, Del Rio, Bryan, Morrison and a few others either competed for a major title on multiple occasions or they were involved in major feuds/storylines with well established veterans which when their story was done they were much more over than when they had begun.
However, no other superstar can claim to have the year that CM Punk did.
He took control of the Nexus in January.
Had a great match with Randy Orton at WrestleMania and Extreme Rules.
Cut one of the most powerful and jaw dropping promo's in June which left the wrestling industry in shock.
Had a 5-Star match with John Cena at Money in the Bank.
Won 2 WWE championships.
In the process of bringing back the WWE Ice Cream Bars!
Gained significant backstage influence with regards as to who to push and look at.
Overtook John Cena as the #1 merchandise seller.
Hopefully 2012 is just as good if not better for Mr. Punk.
