CM Punk: Best In The World DVD Details – Content, Running Time, And Extras

CM Punk is the self-proclaimed “Best in the World,” so it is fitting that his first retrospective DVD/BD release include that signature identifier in the title. Set to arrive in stores worldwide in October 2012, CM Punk: Best in the World looks to break away from the WWE home video formula of producing a wrestler compilation. Currently enjoying his second reign as WWE Champion (250-plus days and counting!) and having wrestled with the company for five years now, WWE could have half-assed the Punk DVD and given us a three-disc collection of matches. Instead, CM Punk was very hands-on with the project, able to retain some control over the manner in which the documentary was produced as well as pick the bonus matches.

Thanks to WWE.com we can tell you that the documentary will have a runtime of 1 hour and 50 minutes. It will be an introspective look at Phillip Jack Brooks, best known to the WWE Universe as CM Punk. In the written description, the DVD is not just a DVD – it’s a pipe bomb.

For the first-time ever, experience the rise of CM Punk from his free-spirited beginnings to his explosive transformation into the most unabashed, outspoken and revolutionary champion in WWE history. Fellow Superstars, close friends and the Voice of the Voiceless himself give you unprecedented access to his life in this 3-disc set. From his home, backstage and even his own tour bus, nothing is off-limits as his harrowing story is told. Through this 2-hour documentary and mind-blowing wealth of exclusive, NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN special features, learn all the secrets behind the sensation. What is CM Punk like outside the ring? Why does he choose to be Straight-Edge? What does “CM” really stand for? What is the most insulting thing you can say to him? And what inspires his blistering rants on the mic that have endeared him to a world-wide audience? These questions and so much more are answered in “CM Punk: Best in the World”!

In addition to the documentary, both the DVD and Blu-ray will include a wealth of bonus matches and extras, including Punk’s dethroning of John Cena to claim his first WWE championship at 2011’s Money in the Bank – a match considered by many to be a classic.
