This is part 2 of the third edition of my "best of" series. Here is part 1.
CM Punk has been on the wrestling scene for more than a decade.
He has made it his mission to become the very best wrestler in each promotion he's ever worked for, and he'd done just that.
Aside from being a phenomenal worker, he is also very gifted when it comes to cutting promos and conducting interviews. His carefree attitude and genuine love for the business has made him one the most "must-see" wrestlers in a long time.
Let the video-slideshow begin!
I remember watching this live on Raw and having a "WTF" moment on my face. In hindsight, this was a great moment in his history and one I now appreciate.
It really doesn't matter what promotion or country CM Punk is in, he always seems to have a way of working the crowd and getting into "arguments."
This is no exception, the only bad thing that came out of this was that certain organizations flipped out because of a certain word Punk used.
So much for freedom of speech, huh?
As always, Punk mingles with the crowd and he once again one-ups them!
This was just sheer brilliance on the creative staff's part. Got to give them credit when they deserve it!
The caption really says it all.
CM Punk vs. Samoa Joe in Ring of Honor was a phenomenal feud from what I have been told.
Their matches were 5-star caliber (literally) and every time they stepped into the ring together, they tore the house down.
Imagine how amazing WWE would be if they didn't have the language limitations and allowed CM Punk to be like this!
This promo proves why he ruled the independent circuit.
This cash in/match started CM Punk's phenomenal 2009 heel run.
The straight edge superstar taking the championship away from the recovering drug addict, kind of ironic.
Also, if you don't understand the headline, pay attention to Justin Roberts and Jim Ross during the title-change announcement.
Punk's facial expressions make this clip amazing.
This is hands-down one of the funniest videos WWE has ever produced.
He really does!
Unlike most people, I actually enjoyed Triple H and CM Punk's feud. This segment between them before Night of Champions 2011 had a few jaw-dropping moments.
Watch if you haven't!
Listen and you'll understand.
The conversation starts at 1:20.
His celebration with the fans brought back a little prestige to the WWE Championship.
Thanks for making it all the way to the end!
Unfortunately there's dozens and dozens of CM Punk moments so I wasn't able to choose them all. However, I hope you enjoyed the ones I did select.
My next entree into the "Best of" series should be available sometime in the next day or two!
