He 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. Punk and Cabana became best friends and spent most of their early career together working in the same independent promotions, as both opponents and tag team partners.

Most of the straight edge principles he portrayed, such as not drinking alcohol or not taking recreational drugs, are his real life views.
