Before trying to make a name for himself in the world of MMA, Punk had been a mainstay in professional wrestling for over 15 years. After performing for Ring Of Honor, Impact Wrestling, and several independent promotions, Punk was signed by WWE in September 2005.

He soon began getting loud reactions from the WWE Universe, and it didn't take long for him to secure a spot on the main roster. Punk went on to become a five-time World Champion, and left the company in 2014 on bad terms.

Later that year, he signed a contract with UFC. Punk competed in two UFC fights, and lost both of them. UFC President Dana White later hinted that Punk's UFC career was over.

Punk later transitioned into an announcing role and signed a contract with CFFC as a commentator.
