Not to sound hipster, but I've been a fan of Punk since he was in the indies. For those who don't know, him and Daniel Bryan are doing the opposite gimmicks they did in ROH. Bryan was the "BEST IN THE WORLD" and Punk was "Straight Edge makes me better than you" (Bryan tweaked to being Vegan, but same deal).
Jade on the other hand mostly wants to tie him up and do unspeakable things to him, lol.
Being Chicago born and raised, I've pretty much rooted for all the hometown wrestlers: Road Warriors, Punk, Cabana. I did happen to follow Punk and Cabana in the later stages of their indy careers, even going to see the Punk: Final Chapter event live. While it was sad that Colt never got a good run in the WWE, Punk has made the most of it, and continues to evolve with the company, and what they throw at him, storyline-wise (I still think his feuds with Jeff Hardy and Cena were one of his best).
