While putting this award idea together, I had a bit of a hunch on which superstar would take this honor. So it should come as no surprise that the Straight Edge Messiah, CM Punk, is your 2011 superstar of the year.
And why not? Quite frankly, Punk did just about everything to get us out of our seats.
He gave us his entertaining microphone work, his stellar in-ring work, shot the most shocking promo we've seen in a while and won the WWE Championship in dramatic fashion on two occasions.
There is no doubt that this was indeed the Year of Punk. I'm sure we can all say that in the middle of all this "PG-era" stuff, Punk made wrestling a bit more cool to watch again.
