CM Punk Early Life and Career Beginnings
CM Punk, whose true name is Phillip Jack Brooks, was born on October 26, 1978 in Chicago, Illinois to an engineer father and a housewife mother. He attended Lockport Township High School because he grew up in the area.
There are five other siblings in Brooks’s family. Because of his alcoholic father, he decided to live a sober life himself and has stuck to that decision ever since. Brooks got his start in the sport in the mid- to late-’90s, when he and his friends and brother Mike formed a backyard wrestling federation called the Lunatic Wrestling Federation.
When he was paired with CM Venom as part of the Chick Magnets tag team, he started going by the ring name CM Punk. After Brooks’ departure from the federation, he enrolled in the wrestling program at Chicago’s Steel Dominion.
He quickly achieved success on the independent circuit, rising to the title of Heavyweight Champion of the International Wrestling Cartel in 2002.
CM Punk Ring of Honor and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling
Ring of Honor hired CM Punk in 2002, and he made his ring debut at that year’s ROH All Star Extravaganza. As he advanced through the ranks of the company, Punk won the ROH Tag Team Championship twice with Colt Cabana. In June of 2005, Punk became the ROH World Champion when he defeated Austin Aries at Death Before Dishonor III.
In addition to his work for Ring of Honor, CM Punk also wrestled for NWA: Total Nonstop Action alongside Julio Dinero. Officials, however, felt that the two were not doing a good job of portraying the story’s antagonists. After a disagreement with TNA management in March 2004 regarding Punk’s eligibility to compete in both ROH and TNA, Punk resigned from TNA.
CM Punk Wrestling Persona
The wrestling character CM Punk that Brooks has utilized for his whole professional career is based on his own personality; Brooks has continuously portrayed Punk as combative, opinionated, and rebellious yet restrained. He also had a reputation for openly mocking the establishment in his performances.
Punk also covered his body in tattoos, many of which became catchphrases or other identifiers for his career. A Pepsi globe, the phrases “Straight Edge” and “Drug Free,” and the Cobra Command emblem are just a few of the tattoos he proudly displays.

Brooks married April Mendez, better known by her ring name AJ Lee, in 2014. At the decade’s close, Brooks launched a film acting career. The 2019 horror thriller “Girl on the Third Floor” featured him as a reformed criminal who moves into an odd old mansion in the Chicago suburbs.
The remake of David Cronenberg’s namesake horror film, “Rabid,” was released the same year, and Brooks had a minor role in it. Later, in the 2021 horror flick “Jakob’s Wife,” which made its world premiere at SXSW in Austin, Texas, he played a key role.
