Haters are my favorite. I´ve built an empire with the bricks they´ve thrown at me. Keep on hating.— CM Punk
The most profound CM Punk quotes that are life-changing and eye-opening
I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't use drugs.
That may be boring for some people, but that's just me. That's how I live my life.
Sometimes it's what you don't do that makes you who you are.
If something sucks, I've always been completely vocal about it, and I've been punished many, many times because of that. But I don't think I'd be in the spot I'm in right now if I wasn't me. I've always just been me.
Do you know what it's like going through life being better than everybody? It's hard.
I've never stolen anything in my life, except maybe a couple hearts here and there.
The best thing you can probably do is keep a low profile, keep your eyes and ears open, your mouth shut, and you will learn a ton.
I don't want to sound egotistical, but I'm egotistical to an extent.
Different people are afforded different opportunities.
I've been given some awesome opportunities, and I feel that I've always knocked them out of the park. But I've always been scaled back after that.
I'm straight edge, and that means I'm better than you.
I hear you guys all the time talking about Daniel Bryan, trained by Shawn Michaels. One curious thing to me is, how come you guys never mention William Regal? William Regal did the real work with this young man. Shawn Michaels took $3,000 from him, that's all he ever did.
I don’t smoke, I don’t drink, I don’t use drugs.
That may be boring for some people, but that’s just me. That’s how I live my life. That stuff never appealed to me and I never understood getting so messed up that you can’t even walk home or remember the previous night. I choose to live my life without it.
I think it's because I'm real. Inside and outside of the ring, what you see is what you get. I'm CM Punk. I'm not trying to be something I'm not. I'm not trying to lie to the people or be fake. I'm not trying to be some crazy, outlandish character. I'm real and they appreciate that. Everything I say, it comes from the heart. It's all real.
I'm not Superman. Eventually, the grind gets to you. If you're away from your friends, you're not traveling with anyone you like, and you're doing stuff that doesn't creatively stimulate you, that's when it becomes a job.
I've never worn a dress shirt that's been comfortable.
I've always just worn dress shoes. On more than one occasion, I've heard that a champion should dress like a champion. But I'm a champion because of who I am. Who I am is not that guy. If everybody wears three-piece suits, everyone looks the same.
Why could you smoke all of those cigarettes? It’s not like they are making you better… they are killing you. It seemed real idiotic to me.
I'd much rather be a one-hit wonder than a phony.
This is how diseases are usually spread.
Someone spits on a guy, somebody has sex with a chimp. Next thing you know . . . AIDS.
Planning stuff out sucks. If you plan stuff out, you wind up talking in a very monotonous, unnatural way.
I'm Straight Edge for me, so what everyone else is doing, it doesn't matter.
I've never been pressured to drink or smoke or anything by any of the boys, and if anything, a lot of them like me because I'm always the designated driver. I'm the one who makes sure everyone gets home alright and I'm happy doing that.
In my twisted brain, I truly believe that nobody ever really dies, as long as the people that he or she touched continue to spread their legacy. I miss Eddie Guerrero. Eddie Guerrero was a great man. So right now, I don't want to hear 'CM Punk', you know the name I wanna hear.
I am The Catalyst of Change
Luck? Good luck? GM, the last time I checked, luck is for losers.
Anybody wants to call me the Triple H of Ring of Honor, I think that's hilarious. I would prefer to call Triple H the CM Punk of the WWE.
There's a lot of unrest. There are a lot of people who are unhappy. I don't want to say I'm their hero, but a lot of people have said that... It's like this in every job, I think. There's certain people who are afforded privileges and maybe, maybe don't deserve them.
He spilled my diet soda!
Best of luck in your future endeavors!
People like to come up to me and tell me that I’ve got nice ink.
Except these tattoos aren’t just decorations. They are declarations. Every tattoo I have tells its own story about who I am. Drug-free. Honor. And a war against the system.
Don't let these tattoos fool you. I'm straight edge. I'm a man of great discipline; I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do drugs... my addiction is wrestling - my obsession is competition. Discipline. My name is C...M...Punk.
The only thing I took advantage of at Extreme Rules was an opportunity to cash in my Money in the Bank contract, which I did successfully, well within the rules. You know, Jeff knows this, you know this, the fans know this: nowhere on that contract does it say, under any circumstances, 'Do not cash in on Jeff Hardy.'
I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do drugs.
.. my addiction is wrestling - my obsession is competition.
I believe Melina is wearing Uggs. Which is exactly how I feel about her.
I fancy myself as being very good at Guitar Hero.
I really don't play any other videogames. I kind of fell in love with Guitar Hero the first time I played it, and went out and bought a system for it.
I'm not a suit and tie kind of guy. I wear a suit once a year, for the Hall of Fame, or if I have to go to a funeral or something. It's just not me.
What you've lost sight of is what you are, and what you are is what you hate.
You're the 10-time WWE Champion! You're the man! You, like the Red Sox, like Boston, are no longer the underdog! You're a dynasty. You are what you hate. You have become the New York Yankees!
I'm a very goal-oriented person.
Pro wrestling has always been ingrained into American culture.
It was one of the first things that was ever on television, so everybody watched it.
I am the voice of the voiceless.
For some reason, talking is easy for me.
Practice does make perfect; I've been doing it for a while. Being out there in a high-pressure situation with a live audience and a live TV camera on you, it brings something out. It's very organic.
I'm jumping in right now. And I'm going to say that everybody I know has a 'day I met CM Punk story' and they're all 100% fabrication. It's all bullshit. Thank you.
If Triple H asked you to jump off a bridge, would you? Because I think that's good for business.
It's a good time to be CM Punk right now.
I'm not allowed to wear my street clothes on TV because Vince McMahon says I don't look like CM Punk when I'm not in my gear.
I like all kinds of wrestling, I like pro wrestling, so if there's a guy I've been feuding with for over a year, and damn it, the only thing left to do is beat the crap out of each other in a steel cage, then it's time to do it.
I drink this [whiskey glass] and I'm just another JBL? you don't get it, I'm not like you. I'm not JBL, I'm CM Punk! Sometimes it's what you don't do that makes you who you are.
Yes, I wanted to win! I wanted the belt! I'm a belt mark! I want to sleep with it! I want to wear that and nothing else to church on Sunday!
I'm the best. I'm the best in the world.
I am STILL better than you. Because I AM drug free, I AM alcohol free, and I’m straightedge.
King Kofi Kingston. The initials are horrible but the name sounds great.
See, Josh, that's what you do when someone slaps you in the face.
So the next time it happens to you, try to retaliate.
