    CM Punk

    I was just wondering if anyone knew about CM Punk, the wrestler who is sxe? He has been wrestling on the independent circuits for a while and just debuted with ECW on Sci-Fi Network. (Tuesdays at 10 PM) A wrestler being edge sounds crazy with all the drugs and steroids, but Punk apparently is legit.

    using straight edge as a gimmick is a horrible idea.

    He never refers to it as a gimmick, but as his lifestyle. I always thought he was legit, he's into hardcore and everything. Of course being in this kind of spotlight, he will always be criticized by people who are edge and even people who aren't. His gimmick isn't really based on being edge, its just what he is and occasionaly cuts promos on being edge.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CM_Punk

    which is fine, but it still comes down to a gimmick and a way to market himself, especially with lines like "i'm straight edge so that means I'm better than you", and that shit is wack.

    I've known about him for a while now, a friend of mine is huge into wresting and we were talking about this guy months ago. Its cool that he can get into the wrestling world without the drugs, but I agree with Dusty, its not cool that he is using it as a gimmick.

    He's sorta old news. It's cool though. And alot of wrestlers skip the drugs. So don't think he's something so special just because he claims edge. And hardcore, I think not his only 2 entrance themes have been A.F.I.'s "This Time Imperfect" and Jay-Z's "99 Problems" (Definately not an edge song or even hardcore for that matter). I really have wanted to see him "wrestle though because I've heard he's got some crazy moves.

    By the way, pro wrestling is NOT[ a sport. It's body art and entertainment.

    CM Punk is one of my inspirations actully.

    Being a pro wrestler myself at a young age he is what helps me stay sXe. Only because he has done my dream and shares my beleifes so it lets me know I can do it.

    About his music, well can ya really blame him. He works in a business where you get over by the crowd and have to appeal to them even if your a bad guy. I use "Down With The Sickness" by Disturbed because it works for my wrestling character. As does he with A.F.I because his gimmick isnt only sXe in the indies but he is also sapose to be kinda a "lost soul" if you will.

    If you seen his feud with wrestler, Raven, over Raven's past drug addiction it was one of the best feuds ever. Although there was a point in the feud where CM Punk was tied to the ropes and had beer poured over him and on his mouth. His promo about sXe and his abusive father is seen as his best stuff.

    His finishing move was the Pepsi Plunge (Top rope pedigree)

    My gimmick has nothing to do with straight edge although I may mention it. I am also going to sport the X on the hands. CM Punk's straight edge gimmick is sapose to piss of some straight edgers too though thats why he plays a straight edger who forces his beleifes on all.

    See to me that just makes a mockery of Straight edge, and i think is disrespectful. he might be edge, but I don't think he's doing anything positive for the scene.

    In fact I find it all very insulting to all straight edgers.

    He's giving wrestling fans a direct passage to our world...what's so blasphemous about that? A.F.I. is one of the things that taught me about straight edge, just because they aren't doing anything necissarily great for hardcore or straight edge, does that make them insulting?

    Whats your gimmick?
    Got a link to your vids or organization?
    Oh and in later news, a friend of mine met an ECW writer who knows Nikolai Volkoff (lives here in Maryland), and he might be able to get hooked up with some training.

    the fact that it's a gimmick. the wording. the imagery. How is he giving wrestling fans anything other than entertainment and an incorrect perception as to what straight edge is about?

    and I'm glad you can go through and find old posts but can't actually address the recent ones that people have made to you. way to not back down!

    No one said anything about backing down but you... stop being such an asshole because my beliefs aren't yours.

    but you do back down, repeatedly. I mean, you talked big in the post where your mom almost fought some kids for you. You're steadfast in your beliefs, you don't have to listen, think, research anything. No one can teach you anything, you're a fucking idiot savant. Where are you at in the porn thread? The abortion thread?
    The thing that's funny is that you think I'm an asshole because your beliefs aren't mine, and that's not it at all. I'm an asshole to you because you spout shit about how you don't back down and how your beliefs are oh so strong, but you can't even see a simple discussion through to completion. You shoot off your mouth without thinking things through and have a damn near impossible time coming to terms with reality.

    My mom didn't really do anything but push one, not for me, but because he called her a bitch. They thought I'd run away for some reason, but they backed down. I listen you fuckhead, I just know how to keep my opinions. You Abortion thread ended, and I still hold my opinion, just less melted down. So, you can blow that "you can't listen" shit to hell. You hardly ever listen when you really think about it.. you barely acknowledge what I say to you, and at least I've changed a little bit. Damn, you think because you own the site that you can just be a fucking asshole and make people submit. Well not me. And I get pretty damn fustrated with alot of people hatin on me, so I don't bother finishing discussions sometime, why? Because I don't have to and it keeps me from giving a fuck. I'm in reality, bucko.
