But it wasn’t always smooth sailing for Punk, who was born Phil Brooks.
Before making it big in the WWE, he was just a backyard wrestler in the Lunatic Wrestling Federation in Illinois, fighting with his friends and brother, Mike.
At one point or another, he seemed to be romantically linked to just about every female wrestler.
Finally, after working for ROH and TNA, Punk was signed to WWE in 2005 and the rest is history.
Punk recently retired from wrestling to try his hand at mixed martial arts.
In 2014, at the age of 36, he signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC.
According to Dana White, Punk could make his mixed martial arts debut at UFC 199 fighting against Mickey Gall, who’s 2-0.
Even though he’s 36 years old and has no prior fight experience outside of wrestling, Punk, who has trained in kempo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, insists on being taken seriously.
