WWE Releases New CM Punk Merchandise, Jim Ross Addresses Jerry Lawler’s Health, Sheamus
– Taking a page out of the John Cena playbook, WWE has released a slate of similarly-styled CM Punk merchandise. Coming in yellow, this includes an “Authentic” T-Shirt reading “GTS” on the front and “BEST IN THE WORLD” on the back, as well as a baseball cap, pendant and wristbands.
The description of all the products reads: “It’s not surprising that CM Punk cites the radical “Rowdy” Roddy Piper as a childhood influence. After all, Punk is the embodiment of the anti-establishment, the modern-day “Voice of the Voiceless,” whose skill at igniting verbal “pipe bombs” is rivaled only by Hot Rod himself. Punk even looks the part of rebel with his too-numerous-to-count tattoos and body piercings. Yet, he waxes way more philosophical than his exterior might suggest, and has shown a diverse set of interests that include ghost hunting, G. I. Joe and the “Straight Edge” movement.”
