WWE's Marvel-ous Superstars

Wolverine & CM Punk

At WrestleMania XXVIII, CM Punk defeated Chris Jericho to truly claim the title of “Best in the World” in WWE, but a certain comic book Canadian can also lay claim to that creed. Though “worldwide sensation” may not have been one’s initial thought back in 1974 when he first appeared in the pages of The Incredible Hulk, Issue 181, Marvel’s Wolverine has become one of the most popular comic book characters of all time.

Though Punk exclaims “It’s clobberin’ time” before every match – a reference to the Fantastic Four’s Thing – he certainly has much more in common with the Adamantium-laced member of the X-Men.

Wolverine and The Straight Edge Superstar are cut from the same cloth; they are tenacious, outspoken, and always try to do what’s right based on their beliefs. Neither makes any apologies for the things they say and both back up their respective “pipe bombs” with their actions in battle. Their methods may not always be civilized, but whether battling Sabretooth or Kane, they do what is necessary for survival and victory.

And although CM Punk may not have a healing factor like Wolverine, The Second City Saint has dedicated himself to a straight edge lifestyle that keeps him strong of mind, body and spirit.
