C.M. Punk is currently the most red-hot personality in the wrestling business right now, so much so that his current WWE storyline has managed to garner mainstream publicity and he’s made the 1989 Living Colour song, “Cult of Personality”, popular again! I’ve already done a “Before They Were Stars” entry for his appearance on the Bozo the Clown Show when he was only eight years old, but here’s some very unique footage showcasing Punk’s early days as a wrestler (and a blonde). Punk made his name in the independent wrestling promotion, Ring of Honor, and in this particular clip from 2004 or so, he is wrestling a “falls count anywhere” match against Homicide in ROH’s sister promotion, Full Impact Pro. The action winds up spilling outside of the arena into a strip club down the street and the two men make attempts to pin each other on the stage with strippers dancing around them!
