CM Punk

Since debuting in the summer of 2006, CM Punk has formed a cult-like following never before seen in WWE. And along the way, whether he's admired or abhorred, there has always been one constant surrounding the Second City Savior: Controversy.

Punk's controversial demeanor turned scandalous in the summer of 2011 when the Superstar threatened to leave the company with the WWE Championship following his title opportunity against John Cena at Money in the Bank. Prior to the match, Punk let a few verbal "pipe bombs" explode in the direction of WWE management, particularly Mr. McMahon. According to Punk's now-famous tirade, McMahon only makes money in spite of himself and surrounds himself with glad-handing, nonsensical yes-men like John Laurinaitis. Punk also took shots at McMahon's family, referring to Stephanie McMahon and Triple H as his "idiotic daughter and doofus son-in-law" respectively. This bold move did not earn him Employee of the Month status but certainly raised his profile to astonishing new heights. (Continue Reading ») | (Photo Gallery »)

As promised, Punk won the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank and immediately left the company, marking one of the most uncertain periods in WWE history. Punk later re-signed with WWE, stating he wanted to be a beacon of change within the sports-entertainment industry. And he equally yearned for the return of WWE ice cream bars.

Prior to the controversial summer of 2011, Punk used his power of persuasion and superior intellect to become one of the most in. uential leaders of his time. First as the prophetic head of the Straight Edge Society and later as the leader of the New Nexus, Punk had Superstars and fans alike . ocking to him, hanging on his every word.

Punk has also proven to be equally successful in the ring. In addition to being a multiple-time WWE Champion, the Voice of the Voiceless has also captured two Money in the Bank briefcases. Both times, he used his guaranteed title opportunity to claim the World Heavyweight Championship, first from Edge in June 2008 and later from Jeff Hardy in June 2009. Punk is also a former ECW, Intercontinental and World Tag Team Champion.

CM Punk Expected To Return At Monday's Raw In Chicago, Illinois

CM Punk is expected to return at tomorrow night's Raw in Chicago, Illinois, according to Dave Meltzer on today's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio (listen here).

While Meltzer won't say he's 100% sure Punk will be at the show, his source, who he says is "one of the biggest stars in the industry," said that it's 100% certain.

Punk has been absent from WWE programming since the Raw following the Royal Rumble on Jan. 27. Meltzer reported Punk had legitimately left the event after telling Vince McMahon he was "going home." By the following Wednesday, the official WWE website stopped advertising Punk for future events. The matter was publicly acknowledged by McMahon on Feb. 20 during a quarterly conference call to investors, with the the CEO replying to a query concerning his status: "He's taking a sabbatical, let's just put it that way."
