I have recently decided to start a series of articles that will focus on the career-defining moments of individual wrestlers.
For every main-event star that has made their mark in the wrestling business, there are moments that, when you look back, define the directions that their career has taken.
I am talking about moments like the iconic "Austin 3:16" promo or Shawn Michaels kicking Marty Jannetty through the "Barber Shop" window, turning points in the respective careers of two icons.
The first article focused on the career of the Miz and his rise from reality-TV reject to WWE champion.
In my second article, I took a chronological journey through the career of our current United States champion, Dolph Ziggler.
The third and latest article in the series will document the wrestling career of one of the WWE's top talents and the most-talked-about wrestler of 2011, CM Punk.
Punk's rise to the top has been meteoric in recent months and when you consider his independent background, it is even more astonishing how far he has come.
Here are 10 moments that defined his career along the way.
