Re: Does CM Punk inpsire you?
I think Foley was the last guy I'd term inspirational as a child and presently as an adult. He took a "thimble's worth of athleticism" and made it to the top of his profession as a legend and to my mind is the most engaging series of characters and mic work in wrestling. Ever.
Then as an adult you keep seeing him doing charities and he's collectively raised millions for sexual abuse survivors, Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami, Haiti, his charity work in Africa, etc. What a nice man. You get to your 20s and 30s and you start reading all the TRUE STORIES about 90 percent of the guys you loved. Austin is a legitimate court-ordered-to-not-drink alcoholic and likely woman beater, HBK and Hogan are two of the biggest cunts of all time, etc.
Never anything like that with Foley.
Foley could play a heel without honestly being kind of an asshole as a person. CM Punk is an asshole. Talented out the, well, ass, but I think he's a mean and unpleasant person for the most part.
So no, Punk doesn't inspire me.
