Say what you will about CM Punk, but he has certainly drawn a degree of attention after finally making his transition to MMA after a long career in professional wrestling.
After making his much-discussed and anticipated MMA and UFC debut, the social media reactions to the fight were certainly very interesting. Some of the most compelling may be from those that have worked with him the longest, the people from his prior life in professional wrestling (although not all are still with WWE). Some were not very enthusiastic, but there was a lot of support for Brooks and his effort.
