Memorabilia Lane: Punk was Right

 In Memorabilia Lane, We’ll Discuss the Significance Some Kind of Collectible

(T-Shirt, Poster, Action Figure) has on us and its Relation to Wrestling.

We mentioned before that people like to draw CM Punk. One artist, Chris Haley drew CM Punk for “reasons.” Well, we found out the reason why; he made a t-shirt!

And not just any t-shirt, a t-shirt that is both a tribute to the Straightedge Superstar and to the X-Men comics. After all the dust settled on Avengers vs. X-Men, some of the mutants were seen wearing shirts that said “Magneto was Right,” referring to Magneto’s differing opinion on the human / mutant dynamic that affect’s their portion of the Marvel universe.

Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men, believes that Humans and Mutants can co-exist peacefully while Magneto believes that Humans want to Eliminate mutants. It’s a less popular opinion, which suits CM Punk fine: when he’s not the Voice of the Voiceless, he’s the Voice of the Less Popular Opinion. If Punk were a Mutant, he would most likely be a Disciple of Magneto’s. Incidentally, CM Punk has his own connection to the Marvel Universe: he wrote the forward for the hardcover collection of Avengers versus X-Men.

Let’s support Chris Haley, CM Punk and Magneto by buying the “Punk was Right” shirt from Chris’ Society 6 Page. If Punk is right about Wrestlemania 29 and makes The Undertaker 20 – 1, then this shirt is the souvenir of that. If Punk loses, don’t worry: it won’t be long before Punk is the lone voice about something else. Who knows? He might even wear it himself at the next press conference. He tends to make a statement at those.
