CM Punk-Enough!

CM Punk sure must have "floated" this Thursday.

CM Punk sure must have "floated" this Thursday.

It looks like the “Straight Edge Superstar,” none other than CM Punk has received some really good press from the inhabitants of his hometown, Chicago Illinois. He was selected to fill the role of Grand Marshall for the Thanksgiving Day Parade this past Thursday. What does this mean for all WWE superstars and punks alike? Some much-needed positive and family-oriented press that has been hard to come by for the WWE in recent years.

 

With the countless and mounting deaths of professional wrestlers and most infamously, that of Chris Benoit’s suicide shortly after killing his wife and child, the WWE could use some Holiday lovin.

 

I think it is great that superstars may be beginning to be recognized for traits other than massive steroid use and “tasteless” entertainment. Guys like CM Punk are what the WWE needs. The crowd loves him, and so far, he truly is a straight edged superstar. So kudos to him for bringing a bright spot to the WWE.

 

Who knows? Maybe even fellow Chicago native and now president-elect Barack Obama will also have something nice to say about Mr. Punk as well.
