Top 10 Wrestlers Who Went From Rags to Riches

9. CM Punk

CM Punk’s background was a rough one, having an alcoholic father and a brother who robbed him. Punk was eventually adopted by a friend’s family. He grew up watching the Macho Man, and knew he wanted to do it, and spent years on the indies, and spent more years in Ring of Honor.

Punk eventually made it to WWE, but even his first few years in WWE were not the greatest. Things turned for Punk when he delivered the Pipe Bomb promo. Since leaving WWE Punk has written for Marvel Comics and is planning on making a debut in the Octagon for UFC.
