Ladies and gentlemen, he is the best wrestler in the world, the face of WWE's new era (dubbed "The Reality Era" by Punk) and the voice of the voiceless. He is also the true WWE champion and his name is CM Punk.
What a difference a month makes, eh? Just last month, many people expected CM Punk to leave the WWE, perhaps forever. But then, of course, he cut the infamous shoot promo on the 26th of June, 2011 and shook the wrestling world to its core. Even before the shoot, he was one of the IWC's favorite wrestlers. After all, he was and still is, the best wrestler in the world and was perhaps the most misused one as well.
But after the shoot, his in WWE career ascended to another level. Punk would go on to win the WWE championship at Money In The Bank in perhaps the best wrestling match of the year against John Cena. He left the WWE afterwards, but returned earlier this week on Monday Night Raw to confront the (fake) WWE champion, John Cena.
It's pretty much a sure thing now that these two will main event Summerslam in a match to determine the real WWE champion. I fully expect Punk to win this match and go on to have a long title reign and many more after it.
Strengths: Phenomenal mic skills, incredible in-ring ability, very charismatic, can play the roles of heel, face and tweener to perfection.
Future: As the face of the new "Reality Era," CM Punk is guaranteed to have a long and extremely successful career. He is only 32 right now, so unless he is seriously injured, you can expect Punk to have at least 10 more years with WWE. Punk is already a one-time (and reigning) WWE champion, a three-time World Heavyweight champion, a former Intercontinental champion, a former ECW champion, a former WWE Tag Team champion and a two-time Money in the Bank winner.
I fully expect Punk to have many more WWE/World title reigns and he will definitely be inducted into the Hall of Fame soon after his retirement. You can bet that by the time his career ends, CM Punk will have become one of the all-time greats of pro wrestling.
