CM Punk has an estimated net worth of $8.5 million
CM Punk is an American professional wrestler signed with the WWE who has an estimated net worth of $8.5 million. He has won WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship three times. CM Punk is 6’2” and weighs 218 pounds. Phillip Jack Brooks was born on October 26, 1978 in Chicago, Illinois. CM Punk’s indoctrination into the wresting world came in his teens and early twenties when he engaged in backyard wrestling with friends and his brother. A makeshift organization called Lunatic Wrestling Federation was where he got his start and also his nickname, which stands for Chick Magnet. The federation started to gain notoriety but eventually led to an estrangement with his brother as CM Punk reportedly discovered that his brother stole money from the federation.
With his amateur experience behind him, CM Punk enrolled in wrestling school and would eventually land him with Ring of Honor promotions in 2003. His brash style and showmanship shone through quickly and in 2005 he signed with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). After becoming a regional champion, he first appeared on the television show Extreme Championship Wresting in 2006 and unveiled his straight edge persona. He would win the ECW championship a year later and was then primed to become a WWE star. He would go on to become a three time WWE World Heavyweight Champion and win the WWE Championship twice. CM Punk would be billed as the “longest reigning champion of the modern era” and was the fastest man in WWE history to win the WWE Triple Crown Championship – holding the WWE championship, World Tag Team Championship and Intercontinental Championship – at the same time.
Although CM Punk used the straight edge persona as part of his wresting character, he believes in the lifestyle outside of the ring – abstaining from alcohol and drugs. He celebrity has risen outside of the wrestling world. He starred in the Sci Fi Channel’s Ghost Hunters Live in 2006 and was the Sports Grand Marshal of the McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade in 2012. He has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and wrote the introduction for Marvel Comics’ hardcover edition of Avengers vs. X-Men. CM Punk has had a series of relationships with female professional wrestlers and is currently dating Amy Dumas, better known as Lita.
