Punk rocked by NRL grapple culture: fines the solution
Phil Brooks, known to millions of people around the world as wrestler CM Punk – the arch villain of the multibillion-dollar WWE industry – believes the NRL could fine the grapple tackle and other MMA-inspired moves out of existence.
Punk, a native of Chicago, was shocked by some of the vision The Sun-Herald compiled for him of MMA/wrestling-style moves that have been used in rugby league. His response to the sight of players being choked was to suggest the NRL follow the NFL’s lead and fine illegal play out of the game.
”If an NFL player tilts his head, points his helmet at an opponent and then hits him, he can get fined $40,000, while repeat offenders are fined $100,000,” he said. ”I think each rugby league tackle needs to be reviewed separately because there were a few [on the DVD] that looked like accidents while others looked like the guy was deliberately slapping on a rear naked choke [a strangulation technique]. You need to judiciously handle each case separately; in a lot of cases you can tell if someone did something maliciously or if it was an accident and go from there.”

One player who’d welcome Punk’s solution was Wests Tigers skipper Robbie Farah who said he opposed the UFC and wrestling techniques when he was asked if they had evolved to become part of the code.

WWE.Com: Can CM Punk and Triple H co-exist at Vengeance?
This Sunday at Vengeance, CM Punk will team with Triple H to take on The Miz & R-Truth. (PREVIEW) With their tumultuous recent history – which included vicious verbal attacks and physical altercations inside and outside of the ring (and throughout an area) – will The Straight Edge Superstar and The Game be able to put their past differences aside and work together to achieve success in the tag team bout?
After weeks of verbal barbs by CM Punk against Triple H and his family, they faced off in a No Disqualification Match at Night of Champions. It was an incredibly physical and personal contest, which started abruptly after Punk assaulted Triple H during his entrance. Despite interference from The Miz & R-Truth and Kevin Nash, the Cerebral Assassin was victorious, allowing him to keep his position as WWE COO.

WWE star CM Punk said one of the keys to his success is that he’s not trying to be something he’s not. “I don’t really know how to do anything else, and I think that’s why I’ve been successful,” Punk said. “People recognize that I’m not trying to be someone I’m not. When you go out there and you try to be something you’re not, whether it’s conscious or sub-conscious, the fans see through it…
“Stone Cold Steve Austin didn’t work as the Ringmaster, The Rock didn’t work at Rocky Maivia — because it was forced. It was phony and when you go out there and you try to be something you’re not, whether it’s conscious or sub-conscious, the fans see through it.” To read the full interview, visit Gizmodo.com.au.

Interview: CM Punk’s Day Off
In the Woody Allen film “Hannah and Her Sisters”, intellectual painter Frederick (played by Max von Sydow) scoffs to his wife, “Can you imagine the level of a mind that watches wrestling?”
Oh if only I wasn’t some cretinous wrestling fan. Then could I tell Frederick to go screw himself.
It may surprise Frederick to know he and I aren’t that different. We both immerse ourselves in something that has an acquired taste. We both sacrifice many hours and countless dollars on it. And it’s something that appeals to various people for several reasons.
On some level Frederick is right. I’m a fool for loving something that at times can be the purest of puerile entertainment. Continue reading »
Who? Wrestler CM Punk, John Cena and Alberto Del Rio will face off in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship Belt
Where? Cajundome on 444 Cajundome Blvd.
When? 7:15 tonight
How much? $15
When you think of a wrestling champ, you might conjure an image of Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Or rather, you might imagine an extremely muscular, American-hero type who seems to be the good guy whenever he steps in the ring.
CM Punk is not your typical WWE wrestling champ.
The Chicago-born modern wrestling star has tattoos wrapping his arms. Across his stomach is another tattoo, declaring the wrestler “straight-edge.”
Yet, he has wanted to a professional wrestler since he was young when he was looking up to former stars such as Rowdy Roddy Piper and Shawn Michaels. Continue reading »
Ottawa’s WWE fans getting Punked
When CM Punk grabbed the microphone on June 27 in Las Vegas, he would send a huge ripple through a world where athleticism and theatrics collide.
Punk delivered a work of brilliance, ripping WWE and its owner Vince McMahon, threatening to leave with one of the company’s championship belts.
With John Cena beaten down and laying in the ring, Punk said: “You’re as good at kissing Vince McMahon’s ass as Hulk Hogan was.”
Score one for Punk, who continued: “Vince McMahon is a millionaire who should be a billionaire … he’s surrounded himself with gladhanding nonsensical yes men … And I’d like to think that this company would be better after Vince McMahon’s dead, but the fact is it’s going to get taken over by his idiotic daughter (Stephanie McMahon) and his doofus son-in-law (Triple H) and the rest of his stupid family.” Continue reading »

WWE Magazine Interview
CM Punk is on the cover of “WWE Magazine’s” October issue, which features an “explosive, controversial” interview with the Second City Saint. The self-proclaimed “Voice of the Voiceless” was given another soapbox to voice his concerns with WWE’s brain trust, his fellow wrestlers who deserve a better shot, and whether anything will change following his return to the sports entertainment organization. Highlights from the interview are as follows:In your estimation, what do you feel is wrong with WWE right now, and what would you do to change it?
What’s wrong with WWE right now is that there isn’t enough youth. Most of the ideas are old. They worked in The Attitude Era or in the ’80′s—and I’m not necessarily saying that they’re bad or they’re wrong —but they need updating, they need tweaking. There needs to be some young minds spinning the webs, so to speak. I’m sick of seeing people who are excellent wrestlers get passed over for people who have abs or who were good second-string linemen in a European football league. I think there are a lot of people who, on their own terms, have made their own personas and perfected their craft simply out of love for what they do. They’re not trying to be bodybuilders or footballs players who fail miserably and then call their uncle or their dad and say, “Hey, I’ll give that wrestling thing a shot because I suck at everything else.”
Why do you think it’s such a strike against guys who—like yourself—are fans but aren’t from a sports or bodybuilding background?
Now, this is complete speculation. I can’t even tell you what somebody else is thinking. I can only say what I think works. And I’m not going to be right 100 percent of the time just like they’re not going to be. Somewhere along the way I think we lost the Midas touch. This whole thing became uncool. I think the people who love it aren’t going to go do something else if they get fired. Like Colt Cabana. He’s a perfect example. He is a wrestler. If he gets hired and it doesn’t work out, he’s wrestling somewhere else the next day. He’s not trying to shoehorn himself into an accounting job. He’s a wrestler. He’s always going to be there. So I just think if you love wrestling sometimes—maybe-you’re punished. You’re placed last in line. The attitude is: You’re always going to be here, maybe we can use you later if we need you, but right now we’re going to use this guy because he was good at college football, but he didn’t quite make it in the NFL.

WWE’s CM Punk ready to tell Trenton what’s on his mind
Recently, there was a huge surge in the iTunes popularity of Living Colour’s 1985 song “Cult of Personality.”

No, this just shows that when it comes to CM Punk, people are listening.
That goes for what he says –and he says a lot these days – or for his new entrance music that goes along with his new brash approach to being one of the WWE’s top superstars. Continue reading »
