CM Punk’s record in professional wrestling

Of the many hats he has donned, Punk is most famous for his professional wrestling stint that saw him revolutionize the WWE. Starting with Ring of Honor, Punk made his WWE debut in 2005. After being a mid-card wrestler for years, his rivalry with John Cena finally pushed him to the stratosphere.

He was the perfect anti-hero to the larger-than-life superhero persona of Cena. However, fans were firmly behind Punk and booed the face of the company to support the Straight Edge Superstar. His breakout moment was the famous pipe-bomb promo where he created an illusion of going off script and bashing Vince McMahon and his handling of the promotion. It did not go unnoticed as Punk began a record-breaking reign with the WWE title, which saw him remain champion for 434 days.

That was not the only record he held in the company. Punk is a 3-time World Heavyweight Champion (WWE), 2-time WWE Champion, WWE Intercontinental Champion, World Tag Team Champion, and the winner of the 2008 and 2009 Money In The Bank ladder matches. CM Punk is the 7th longest-reigning WWE Champion of all time.

However, after all this, he had a tragic fallout with WWE over the alleged mishandling of his health and inappropriate booking. This saw Punk leaving professional wrestling for good and joining the UFC as a mixed martial artist.

Despite bringing a lot of attention, his MMA career in the Welterweight division was a flop, with him losing both his fights. After being away from WWE for over nine years, Punk made an unexpected comeback in November 2023.
