The new edition of WWE Magazine includes a back-cover poster for the 2011 Tribute to the Troops special. The tagline reads: “The most patriotic show on TV.”
The two-hour special is scheduled to air Tuesday, December 13 at 9:00 p.m. EST on USA Network. A one-hour version not mentioned on the poster will air Saturday, Dec. 17 on NBC.
Former WWE Diva Serena was interviewed by Alfonso Castillo of Newsday.com and spoke about working with Punk:
“I could see that this guy believed in himself. I think that’s the number one thing that leads to success in this business, is that belief in yourself. If you don’t your just going to get eaten alive and you’re going to sink…Punk obviously has done the opposite of that, because he’s always known how good he is and how talented he is and he’s never doubted that. He’s always believed that he should be on top, and that’s exactly where he deserves to be. And he’s worked very hard to get to that point.”

“Heads up: WWE is filming a straight-to-DVD documentary on WWE superstar and Chicago resident CM Punk. The documentary, which doesn’t have a name yet, will be released some time in 2012.”

WWE Survivor Series is right around the corner and pizza and wrestling fans alike are pumped because it means the return of Ian’s Pizza Wrigleyville’s CM Punk-inspired Go to Sleep (G.T.S.) pizza!
“The G.T.S. pizza is the best in the world. Would you expect anything less from a pizza inspired by me?” stated CM Punk.
This meaty slice, which originally debuted for a limited time in July, is named for WWE superstar and Chicago native CM Punk’s finishing move Go To Sleep. Featuring smoked turkey leg, sliced potatoes, Swiss cheese and French fried onions on a creme fraiche base, it’s perfect for a pre-Thanksgiving feast.
Ian’s Pizza Wrigleyville is bringing it back for the week of Thanksgiving (11/21 – 11/27,) or, as we like to think of it, the week CM Punk reclaims the heavyweight championship belt from Alberto Del Rio.
“Its incredible, people would not stop asking for the G.T.S. Punk’s fans just started pouring out of the woodwork to show their support by eating his namesake,” says Ian’s managing partner Dimitri Syrkin-Nikolau.
