In this article, we examine the oft-overlooked, hard-hitting reasons which prove Kevin Nash is several leagues above CM Punk

It's no secret that former WWE Champions Kevin Nash and CM Punk, to this very day, are at loggerheads with one another over several real-life differences they've had in the past.

While Nash strongly criticized Punk for the latter's infamous "Pipebomb" promo which The Straight Edge Superstar cut live on the June 27th, 2011 episode of Monday Night RAW; Punk returned fire by alleging that Nash and other part-time Superstars were unfairly taking away a majority of the spotlight from the younger, full-time talents.

One ought to note that his work as part of the CID team was primarily during his time in Giessen, Germany and that he successfully served for not one but two years at a high-security NATO facility, and that was the time when he received the promotion, earning the honours of being anointed a Specialist.

The aforementioned facts bring something really significant to light, that being Nash's mental fortitude and discipline.
