CM Punk: Net Worth, Salary, & Endorsements

Phillip Jack Brooks, better known as CM Punk, is a former American professional wrestler, and a mix martial artist currently signed to the UFC. Also, he works as a commentator for Cage Of Fury fighting championships, a comic book writer and an actor.

Of the many hats he has donned, Punk is most famous for his professional wrestling stint that saw him revolutionize the WWE. Starting out 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 John 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 didn’t 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 the only record he held in the company. He is a former 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 6th longest-reigning WWE Champion of all-time.

However, after all this, he had a tragic fall out with WWE over alleged mishandling of his health as well as 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 has been a flop with him losing both his fights. He has since started mending his ways with Wrestling. He currently serves as an analyst for the Fox Sports program WWE Backstage. Even though he is not employed by WWE, this gives his fans hope for another return. It still remains up in the air for obvious reasons.

CM Punk Net Worth

CM Punk

The net worth of CM Punk as of 2020 exceeds $8 million. Considering that he is not wrestling and has no upcoming MMA fights, that’s a lot of money.

Punk was paid handsomely when he was a part of the WWE. Before that, he was the highest-earning ECW star in 2006-2008 earning around $200,000 to $300,000 annually. In WWE, he was earning $1 million annually in 2011.

The figure went up to 1.3 million in 2012-13. It touched $1.7 million in 2013-14. He was the cover star of the WWE 2K13 video game, which earned him another $200,000.

CM Punk had earned enough brand value to earn millions wherever he went after he left WWE. That’s why UFC was ready to pay him well, even as a novice. His first fight got him $500,000.

He got more out of the PPV revenue which pushed his earnings past the one million mark. He was paid $503,500 for his second appearance. An additional $500,000 was given as an appearance fee and $3500 as a fight incentive.

CM Punk charities and foundations

CM Punk has been a pretty charitable superstar throughout his career.

He has fulfilled many wishes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, as well as a similar charity called the Kids Wish Network.

Punk has also joined the Kerry Wood’s Strike Zone Bowling Tournament, a tournament that sets out to improve the health of Chicago children through healthy eating and enhanced education. He has also painted customized chairs for the Chicago Cubs to be auctioned off, and in 2015, auctioned off his first car, a 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo to charity.

CM Punk history with Roman Reigns and The Shield

CM Punk made a big revelation on the Colt Cabana podcast when he revealed that The Shield was his idea. However, one big twist was that he didn’t originally want Roman Reigns.

In fact, he had his eyes on Chris Hero or Kassius Ohno as the powerhouse of the group. However, WWE decided to go with Roman instead and Punk didn’t make a fuss about it. For him, it was just about three young guys he wanted to bring in and give the big rub.

The Shield started out by attacking all rivals of CM Punk despite refusing to align with him. However, they were soon revealed to be in liaison after Vince McMahon revealed secret footage of Punk’s manager Paul Heyman paying The Shield and referee Brad Maddox to help him out.

Punk could not have a protracted rivalry with any of The Shield stars. All the possibilities are still dream feuds. Fans still wait to see him go head to head with Roman Reigns in a wrestling match.
