BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - At 6'1", 222 pounds, CM Punk
doesn't look like the muscle bound giants many people associate
with professional wrestling...which is just the way he likes it.

In an exclusive visit with Eyewitness News, CM Punk told
Adam Francis, "Unless you can find me a guy who is 7 foot tall,
and 300 pounds who is as entertaining as I am!"

The three time world heavyweight champ dominates his opponents
inside the WWE ring as well as getting inside their heads.

CM Punk continued, "When I was a kid, I would get beaten
up constantly, bullied constantly, and the one thing that never
stopped was my mouth. I would be getting punched in the face
and I would just be running my mouth. I think that's where alot
of the CM Punk persona comes from."

The wrestler also leads what is called a "straight edge" lifestyle.
The heavily tattooed wrestler has the words "drug free" etched
across his knuckles. It was one of his first tatoos. He says
it is a permanent sign of his straight edge, dependency free
mindset.

Sunday, PUNK and the rest of the WWE will take over the First
Niagara Center in downtown Buffalo for the "Night Of Champions"
pay per view. Punk will face Triple H.

Tickets are available at the First Niagara box office.
