AEW's CM Punk On Why He Uses 'Cult Of Personality' As His Entrance Theme

Punk used the tune in ROH, WWE, and now in AEW

When CM Punk returned to pro wrestling at AEW Rampage in August, he was heralded by a familiar sound as Living Color’s Cult of Personality sent Chicago’s Sears Center into meltdown.

Recently during an appearance on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Punk was asked why he’s stcuk with Cult of Personality for so long, saying:

“I have been fortunate enough to be friends with a lot of great bands, a lot of talented artists, and to use a lot of those songs for entrance music. Cult of Personality, I think, transcends everything and I’m proud of this. The name CM Punk is forever tied to the band Living Color and Cult of Personality. It’s been a common thread throughout my entire life. The whole reason I used that song in Ring of Honor was because I loved that song. I thought it was great ring entrance music and for the character and everything. That was the song my little league team would play after we won games in 1989. It’s been with me for a while. I know all those guys. I was just with them at Riot Fest.”

Punk used the theme in ROH, WWE, and now in AEW.
