This article chronicles some of their thoughts and feelings. If you are a CM Punk fan, you'll not want to miss these entertaining stories.

Without further ado, grab your popcorn and skim through these entertaining tales.

#5 Punk once thought Jericho was unprofessional

The year was 2010. The United States was facing Canada in a hockey game that Jericho was really interested in watching. Now, Punk and Jericho were teaming up to face John Morrison and Edge, in a tag team match on the same night. Canada, Jericho's home team, scored just as his music was playing.

Jericho and Edge, both huge hockey fans assumed that the match would just be called in the ring. Except Punk would not tag Jericho in, through the course of the match. He thought that Jericho had been far too unprofessional, following the hockey game ahead of their match.

Of course, things really got heated up backstage when Jericho returned to get into CM Punk's face. Jericho's argument was that fans may have paid to see Y2J in action, and Punk robbed that opportunity from these big-time Jerichoholics.

This story is just testament to the fact that Punk would be difficult to work with, if things weren't necessarily going his way. However, it was this headstrong attitude that endeared fans to him as well. Punk was quite a character. Yes, both in and out of the squared circle.
