Q:

What does "CM Punk" stand for?

A:

The initials "CM" in wrestler CM Punk's name originally stood for "Chick Magnet." He began using these initials when he was paired with CM Venom in the Chick Magnets tag team in the 1990s.

CM Punk, whose real name outside of the wrestling ring is Phillip Jack Brooks, has given several explanations for the "CM" initials. In a 2006 interview, he explained, "I tell people it stands for C. Montgomery Burns, as in Mr. Burns from 'The Simpsons.' I tell people they are initials for my real name, Chuck Mosley, which is not true at all. I'll say it stands for Crooked Moonsault, Charles Manson ... Cookie Monster is another good one."
