6 Years Ago: CM Punk Cuts His Legendary Pipe Bomb on the WWE

Subscribe to The Rock Station 99X on

There are a number of reasons that is CM Punk is great. But one of his best abilities is to hit a massive audience no matter what he does. Hell, 6 years ago, I was so far removed from the wrestling universe that I had no idea who was around, who was champ or anything. But, on June 27th 2011, Punk did something that brought me back in…he dropped the infamous John Cena Pipebomb.

One night, the WWE decided to just turn Punk loose with a microphone and the world forever changed. It is one of the most memorable moments in wrestling history. Punk came out, sat down, and aired every grievance he had with the company and his position. It was amazing and drew me (and tons of other folks) back into the wrestling world.

Not to mention, it proved that these ‘Indie Darlings’ could get over HUGE with a mainstream audience. Which has opened the door for guys like Seth Rollins, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, and others.

It is a gem for wrestling fans and non fans a like. And if/when I quit my job, THIS is how I want to go out.
