CM Punk has never strayed from being a wrestling historian during his many promos on Monday Night Raw. From the WWE ice cream bars to King Kong Bundy, Punk has made many references to wrestling past that are fantastic nods to the older fans and seeds of knowledge for the younger ones.

This past Monday while in the midst of giving Jerry "The King" Lawler a verbal dressing down, Punk referenced Lawler's past exploits in the Memphis territory of wrestling, where Lawler's career blossomed and exploded.

Well, to be fair, he referred to Lawler's opponents as "nobodies" and went as far as to facetiously refer to himself as the real King of Memphis wrestling during his steel-cage thrashing of the WWE Hall of Famer.

Although a footnote in Punk's progressive heel run filled with numerous bitter monologues, the city of Memphis did, in fact, provide quite the fertile ground for Lawler's career, as it was filled with plenty of high-profile feuds and memorable wrestling moments.

Not to be a closed, definitive list by any means, let's go back to where it all started for The King.
