CM Punk Reveals Why He Writes Initials On His Shoes In AEW

Punk has been leaving little Easter eggs on his shoes

Since his return to pro wrestling in an AEW ring, fans have been hanging on every little thing CM Punk does, such as the Straight Edge Saviour writing initials on the sides of his shoes.

On an appearance on Complex’s Sneaker Shopping, Punk revealed why he writes on his kicks:

“I think one of the great things like the connection the wrestlers have in AEW with the fans is special. I like to f**k with people, you know what I mean?” Said Punk “I like to have fun and throw in little Easter eggs here and there. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I was looking at punk bands and they’d be wearing another punk band’s shirt, you know what I mean? Because it’s not about being, ‘Oh, I need to be a better band. I’ve got to hold everybody down.’ It’s about high tide raises all boats, like, everybody else.

“Everyone is so excited coming to these AEW shows. The fans are so into every single wrestler that walks through the curtain,” he continued. “I’m just trying to have fun with it really, honestly. So like, I’m scribbling on my shoes and everyone is trying to decode everything, and it just gives another layer of the connection that we have with our fans and it’s fun.”
