CM Punk has had a string of misfortune since returning to the WWE after a loss to The Undertaker at last year’s WWE WrestleMania. He has had run ins with The Shield, The Wyatt Family, and even his boss, Triple H, all trying to suppress his free speaking mind and cause him great harm in the WWE. To add insult to months of injury, Kane, now corporate and no longer any fun, has decided CM Punk would be the perfect first entrant in the Royal Rumble 2014. Punk, weary and war torn, will have his work cut out for him if he wishes to main event WrestleMania.
CM Punk’s hard hearted, grouchy demeanor came to a head at WrestleMania 29 when he faced off with Undertaker. Claiming he could beat the streak, Punk faced off with The Dead Man and attempted to take away his WrestleMania glory. Immortalized in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25, CM Punk has black boots, knee pads, trunks with white stars, and a dark and angry, clenched teeth mouth, reminiscent of a Ninja Turtle. The Battle Pack also included an Undertaker figure and an urn accessory, based on the urn CM Punk took from Undertaker that represented his late father, Paul Bearer.
CM Punk’s lighter side might be found in the new Mattel WWE Slam City figures. This two pack, including CM Punk, The Miz and a breakable table, has two Slam City style versions of Punk and Miz, both with stretchable, launchable arms. These new figures have fun, wild features to make play more heavily based around tossing your figures around. Perfect for CM Punk trying to cheer himself up after a loss to the Undertaker.
With new and improved features, the Mattel WWE Super Strikers feature signature moves related to their Superstars. This CM Punk figure has the perfected ability to administer a Go to Sleep, or GTS! Placing another figure on its shoulders, wrestling figure fans can administer some knees to faces and finish the match. Taking it a step further, this CM Punk figure brings entirely new meaning to the term ‘paper champion’ with the inclusion of a cardboard World Heavyweight Championship.
The latest Mattel WWE CM Punk, and hopefully his final grouchy and grumpy appearance in the line, finds the Straight Edge Superstar in Mattel WWE Series 36. With black boots, black knee pads and black trunks with orange stars and stripes, this CM Punk figure still has the angry face and still wants to end Undertaker’s streak. Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans can use this CM Punk to take the steps towards enlightenment, moving on to rage against the machine and the authority instead of worrying about supernatural beings he cannot defeat.
It isn’t impossible for CM Punk to last through the entire 2014 Royal Rumble and win to go on to WrestleMania and face the WWE World Heavyweight Champion in the main event, but his work is cut out for him!
