Ian’s Pizza in Wrigleyville has added a pizza inspired by WWE superstar and Chicago-area native CM Punk to its menu for a limited time.

The G.T.S pizza — named after Punk’s finishing move, which stands for “Go To Sleep” — features smoked turkey leg, sliced potatoes, swiss cheese and French fried onions on a creme fraiche base.

Why smoked turkey leg?

“The G.T.S. is his signature move,” said Ian’s managing partner Dimitri Syrkin-Nikolau by email, “so a meat that puts you to sleep is the perfect choice.”

The pizza will be available Monday through Sunday and was created for SugarSlam 2011, the wrestling-themed baking contest hosted by bakeanddestroy.com (you can watch Ian’s video on the G.T.S. pizza by clicking here). The judge panel for the contest features WWE Diva Beth Phoenix, Moto executive pastry chef Ben Roche and author Mike Edison.

Celebrity website, TMZ released a video capturing an incident over this past weekend at a WWE house show in Australia. The comments have stirred up some controversy. CM Punk took to his twitter to apologize for his comments, read below.

I’m glad TMZ posted that video because everybody needs to be held accountable for their bullshit, me included. What I said was bullshit. I’m embarrassed. I own up to being a total douche in this situation and I offer a sincere apology to anybody I hurt with careless words.

Mike Mooneyham of Post & Courier published this interview with Colt Cabana which of course mentions Punk & his reference to Cabana on Raw last week:

WWE officials may not have been all that familiar with Colt Cabana when he worked briefly for the company a couple of years ago.

It’s safe to say they are now.

Cabana was mentioned at the conclusion of last week’s Raw during a C.M. Punk promo that shocked the wrestling world and created a stir on Twitter.

But Cabana, longtime best friend of Punk, wasn’t surprised.

“He’s worn my shirt before doing commentary,” says Cabana, referring to a Raw broadcast last November when Punk sported a Cabana shirt displaying the Star of David symbol, paying homage to Cabana’s Jewish heritage. “He doesn’t care anymore, and he’s looking out for his buddies.”

“Vince McMahon is going to make money despite himself. He’s a millionaire who should be a billionaire,” said a defiant Punk. “You know why he’s not a billionaire? Because he surrounds himself with glad-handed, nonsensical yes men like (talent chief) John Laurinaitis, who’s going to tell him everything he wants to hear.”

The Chicago Tribune has an interview with John Cena talking about being excited about his match with CM Punk at Money in the Bank, even though he is suspended. They mention that they originally requested Punk for an interview, but WWE decided it would be best if they spoke to another superstar, which turned out to be Cena.

Sean “X-Pac” Waltman has a new blog posted on his official site, RealXPac.com & mentioned Punk:

While I was still living in Mexico I stopped by Palacio de los Deportes where WWE was putting on a live event. The main event was Punk(as WWE Champ) vs Undertaker. I know from experience how hard it is for a guy our size to work with Taker or Kane. Well Punk and Taker had a hell of a match & I was extremely impressed that he had the ability to pull that off. I talked to William Regal about him that night & he told me Punk actually paid for & took a seminar put on by Regal, even after Punk had already made somewhat of a name for himself. That alone speaks volumes about the guy.”
