Kevin Pietersen had the ability and zeal to perform as a big-time player and could hit hard hitting shots with ease. His talent was such, that despite being rejected by the national squad, he was always the first preference over other players for any of the domestic teams he represented. He used to occasionally bowl off-spin and was successful in breaking many partnerships. However, he could not get along with his team management and was sidelined from the national side. He even retired once but did make a return back to the squad.
CM Punk was an 'agent of change' in the WWE. He always wanted to opine and didn't toe the company line. He was back to back and the first ever two times Money in the Bank match winner.
