#49 CM Punk
CM Punk doesn’t fit the archetypal definition of a handsome guy. He’s a little too rough around the edges, a little too unwashed. But he doesn’t fit the archetypal definition of a WWE Champion either — and that’s exactly his appeal.
Perhaps the most counterculture Superstar WWE has ever promoted, Punk looks like the toughest guy at a Rancid concert and that punk rock aesthetic has made The Straight Edge Savior the alternative answer to clean-cut Superstars like John Cena. With his torso covered in tattoos and a take no prisoners attitude, Punk probably isn’t the type of guy you’d want your sister dating. But that isn’t going to stop him from doing it.
