How did CM Punk make their money and wealth?

As mentioned earlier, CM Punk has held quite a few jobs as a result of his WWE fame, and all have greatly contributed to his wealth. Most important of these has been his title winning stints as a pro wrestler, where he quickly gained a name for his personality and style. Starting off in Ohio in 2005, Punk would gain great fame in the next decade, and a fan favorite as a result of his nonconforming style and personality in and out of the ring. This would help him lend his fame to projects the WWE had, including the 2015 film The Flintstones and WWE: Stone Age Smackdown! Where he would play the character CM Punkrock. He would also appear in the earlier film Queens of the Ring, a French film which featured a single mother regaining the attention of her son by becoming a pro wrestler.
Aside from his film and ring appearances, Punk has also made his way into the main stream spotlight in other ways. Of the most well known was his 2006 appearance in Ghost Hunters Live, where he joined the team from the Sci-Fi network for a 6 hour sigil in the Stanley Hotel in Colorado. While he had claimed to have no real beliefs in the paranormal or afterlife (himself identifying as an atheist) he did keep to claims of hearing children giggle and footsteps despite both not being possible at the time. A surprise to some, it turns out CM Punk is, in his own words, a giant nerd. Having appeared on AMC’s the Talking Dead program (a commentary on The Walking Dead), as well as aided in writing multiple comic books such as Avengers vs. X-Men, Thor Annual and The Most Cursed, as well as the Drax series. As an aside, he would also write a foreword for a cookbook written by an ex, as a sign of good faith and humor.

Lastly in terms of earnings in recent years, CM Punk has a trifecta that continue to bankroll him: UFC, Video Games and Reality TV. As one would expect for many WWE Superstars, CM Punk has shown up in his fair share of WWE videogames from 2008 to 2015. These would often show off some of his famous rivalries across his career, especially in career or showcase mode with plenty of his signature moves available to use in play. He also would show up in EA Sports UFC 2 video game, despite only being in one official UFC Match with Mickey Gail, who would defeat Punk quite quickly in the first round of his match. Since his match in 2014, he has yet to have a second match, while on the reality show The Challenge: Champs vs Pros on MTV would give him the title of MMA fighter, despite the fact that pro wrestler may yet be the better title for Punk.

CM Punk House

While remarkably humble on the outside, the Chicago, Illinois dwelling of CM Punk is quite luxurious in amenities and a menagerie of designs within. Featuring a classy loft style bedroom, a heavily decorated luxury bathroom including both a standalone shower and oversized bath, and a dining room and kitchen with plenty of hardwood, glass and marble, what it doesn’t have on the outside it most certainly does on the inside.

CM Punk Car
Often seen in a Hummer Limo, CM Punk’s car is a little more reserved for his day to day activities. This photo shows him driving up to an event in an earlier model blue Dodge Charger, which is a fairly practical and low price car for someone of his celebrity status. One may chalk that up to his adherence to the “straight edge” lifestyle both in and out of the ring in his years at the WWE.

Charity and donations and philanthropy

Throughout his career, CM Punk has donated time or items to multiple charities either directly with or outside his wrestling career. Having competed in multiple bowling tournaments for education, aided WWE in their work with childhood cancer patients, and at one point even putting one of his cars up for auction for charity, CM Punk hasn’t one dedicated cause, but it appears he does try to help when the chance shows itself.

CM Punk Accomplishments:

Despite his loss of his own UFC fight to date and a position on a reality TV show, CM Punk has had a long and pretty illustrious career. These include more Match of the Year titles than one could count, a tag team world champion title, and intercontinental championship title, no less than 3 heavyweight championships and two stints as the WWE Champion, all while facing off against other legends like John Cena and The Rock.
