There is a small article in this months Maxim about CM Punk. It talks about his infamous interview on the June 27th Raw and how is now a “superstar” among the likes of Stone Cold and the Rock. They talk about his life, how he came into the WWE and where his career is now.
Earlier this week, a WWE.com article ordained Alberto Del Rio as the favorite for this Sunday’s first-ever Triple Threat Hell in a Cell Match, citing The Mexican Aristocrat’s sheer cunning as the reason. (FULL STORY)
Del Rio’s two opponents, WWE Champion John Cena and former champion CM Punk, beg to differ.
“I think you reporters are quite ill-informed. I’m actually quite cunning, and so is CM Punk,” retorted the reigning WWE Champ.
Expanding on the Hell in a Cell comments that he made in a WWE.com exclusive video, The Second City Saint emphatically shot down the notion as well – questioning whether WWE.com has actually been watching WWE programming. “[Del Rio’s] not the most cunning of the three of us, and he sure doesn’t have the advantage,” he said.
WWE Superstar and Chicago native CM Punk added another tattoo to his collection Tuesday at Family Tattoo in Roscoe Village. “I did a tattoo of a dead fish on the back of his (left) shoulder,” said tattoo artist Matt Wes. “It was a friendship tattoo he got with Natalie Slater of bakeanddestroy.net. There’s a story behind the tattoo that means something to their friendship.”
Stone Cold retired due to injury in 2003 after battling The Rock at WrestleMania XIX but has since built a successful career as a movie star.
His latest release, Born To Fight, is out on DVD next week and the grappling legend reckons his current Twitter banter with Punk could turn into a full-blown scrap at WWE’s showpiece pay-per-view event.
Austin, who was the face of the WWE’s revamped Tough Enough series, told SunSport: “I think Punk is a great guy.
“I’d say he looks up to me for what I did in the ring back in the day — and I look up to him for what he is doing now. I’d say it’s a case of mutual respect.
“I hear the stories and if the stars aligned and all things worked out to benefit us all — the WWE, myself and Punk — I’d say that he is the guy I’d pick to face.
“I’m sure I could get another match out of this carcass of mine.”
CM Punk might be finding himself embroiled in some of the most brutal battles in recent WWE history – including the first-ever Triple Threat Hell in a Cell Match for the WWE Championship in two weeks – but that doesn’t mean The “Voice of the Voiceless” has lost his appreciation for the simpler things in life. On the same night he clashed with WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H in a No Disqualification Match, The Straight Edge Savior debuted a new shirt that symbolizes his love for Good Humor’s defunct line of WWE ice cream bars, featuring one of the long-gone frozen treats stamped with his iconic tattooed likeness.
