CM Punk was iconic on the independent wrestling scene and then took it to another level with championships and “pipe bombs” in WWE, but it simply wasn’t for him. The Straight Edge Superstar had a huge fan base in the wrestling world, and he was extremely successful in the squared circle, but he had bigger aspirations in mind.
