Brooks's first venture into wrestling was a stint in a backyard wrestling federation called the Lunatic Wrestling Federation with his friends and brother Mike Brooks in the mid-late 1990s. Brooks first started using the ring name CM Punk when he was put into a tag team named The Chick Magnets with CM Venom after another performer skipped out on the card; the CM stood for "Chick Magnet".
Unlike his friends, Punk genuinely wanted to be a wrestler and saw it as more than simple fun.When the promotion started taking off, doing shows out of a warehouse in Mokena, Illinois, Punk found out that his brother Mike had embezzled thousands of dollars from the small company, causing them to become estranged. They have not spoken since.
Punk's matches with Colt Cabana led him to being hired by the Ring of Honor (ROH) promotion. Initially, Punk joined ROH as a face,but quickly turned heel in a feud with Raven that featured numerous variants of no disqualification matches. Their rivalry was rooted in Punk's straight-edge lifestyle, with him likening Raven to his alcoholic father; it lasted most of 2003 and was considered one of ROH's top feuds of the year.Their rivalry was settled at The Conclusion in November 2003, where Punk defeated Raven in a steel cage match.
Punk started climbing the ranks of ROH, including coming in second at the Second Anniversary Show during the tournament to crown the first ROH Pure Champion, losing to A.J. Styles in the finalsand winning the ROH Tag Team Championship twice with Colt Cabana as The Second City Saints (Punk and Cabana defeated the Briscoe Brothers to win the championship both times).Circa October 2003, Punk was hired as the first head trainer of the Ring of Honor wrestling school,having previously been a trainer for the Steel Domainand Primetime Wrestling.
In September 2005, Punk was assigned to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), a WWE developmental territory. He made his debut as a heel on September 8 in a dark match, where he, Nigel McGuinness and Paul Burchill were defeated by Deuce Shade, Elijah Burke and Seth Skyfire.On September 26 in his OVW television debut, Punk suffered a ruptured eardrum and broken nose after Danny Inferno hit him with an overly stiff right hand. Despite the injury, Punk finished the match and quickly recovered.
On August 20, 2021, Punk officially came out of retirement and returned to televised professional wrestling programming after an absence of seven years (excluding his WWE Backstage punditry appearances), by making his debut with All Elite Wrestling (AEW). This occurred on the AEW Rampage episode The First Dance, in the United Center of Chicago, Punk's hometown. He challenged Darby Allin to a match at the All Out pay-per-view on September 5.
