Hangman Page might take a sip from a fan’s beer, prior to the pandemic, but CM Punk wouldn’t ever drink alcohol given to him in any setting. CM Punk is a straight edge, and he takes that seriously. One fan didn’t realize that he would become a meme after offering CM Punk beer on national television.

CM Punk recently appeared on ET Canada where he was asked about getting offered booze by a fan in the crowd. He laughed it off and admitted that it is a good thing he’s not a bad guy. A heel Punk might have slapped that cup out of the fan’s hand. Instead, he only gave that fan a priceless look and carried on.

“The thing that was going through my mind in that moment was, ‘Man, this guy is lucky I’m not a heel right now.’ But it was a funny moment for me. I was just like, ‘This is hilarious.’ Sometimes it’s not about the gift, the gesture is more important.”

Perhaps that fan didn’t realize that CM Punk was still doing the straight edge thing. Maybe he didn’t realize that it was a shoot, but either way Punk politely declined the drink and the Internet Wrestling Community quickly got to work making memes.
