5 of CM Punk's best rivalries
There are some truly legendary feuds on this list.
Even though CM Punk is long gone from the WWE, it's obvious that the fans think fondly of him. Perhaps a little bit too fondly if you're sick of the CM Punk chants that echo through the arena at least twice a month. But, this is a testament to the impact the Cult of Personality made during his time with the promotion.
He quickly became one of the top superstars in the world during his WWE run and a large part of that had to do with the excellent feuds he had with a number of the top stars before he left for the world of MMA and the UFC.
Ever since he elevated his game from an upper mid carder to a legitimate main eventer, Punk never seemed to have a bad run. Today, we are here to explore the very best rivalries that he was a part of during his days as a professional wrestler.
So, without any further ado, here are CM Punk's 5 best rivalries:
#5 CM Punk vs Brock Lesnar
When Brock Lesnar made his long-awaited return to the WWE, it was pretty obvious that Paul Heyman would be reprising his role as the Advocate to the Beast Incarnate. Knowing Heyman's past association with CM Punk, it was only a matter of time before The Best in the World matched up against Lesnar.
Things finally came to a head in 2013 when Punk and Lesnar got into it in one of the best feuds of the year. The only downside to this rivalry – and the only reason it doesn't rank higher – is that the pair only had one match.
That one match was a Match of the Year candidate at Summerslam 2013 where the Chicago native stepped up his game and took Brock to the limit like no one had since Lesnar's return to professional wrestling.
It was a great match, with Lesnar only coming out on top thanks to the interference of Heyman.
