Can you imagine being gifted with the athleticism to get into the sport of wrestling? Yeah, neither can I. So when we see our favorites within the square circle, there's a level of respect that we give to those who indulge us in that type of entertainment. What we tend to forget is that the person who engages in the sport typically has a life outside of it. Whether it's an athlete in wrestling, basketball or football, those individuals may only be remembered for the talents they had in the sport they played, rather than what activities and achievements they've achieved outside the court or ring. While we're in the age of promoters peeling back the curtain and allowing fans to see what goes on backstage, we're also getting a look into how our favorite wrestlers like to spend their free time. This is why athletes are interesting people to follow, especially wrestlers. It already takes a certain amount of skills and discipline to be great at this sport, but as a fan when you find out about the levels of talent one may possess you start to question your own mediocrity.
The stigma surrounding athletes today usually have to do with the reputation of being ‘big ol meatheads’ who have nothing to attribute into society other than entertainment. What folks tend to do is take for granted what these so called ‘meatheads’ have to do in order to prosper in the position that they’re in. The amount of knowledge some of the stars have that have the sense to apply it in their craft superseded what any naysayer would have to say about their intellect or creative talents.
With that being said, we've come to find that some of these guys also work on talents that have nothing to do with wrestling. Don't believe me? Well then, go on and take a look for yourself!

It was a little big shocking when news came out that CM Punk was going to be a writer for Marvel. Not only will the former WWE Champion have his hands tied with the UFC, but he also wrote an issue for Thor, will contribute to the Drax on-going series and will work on other comics in the future. How often are you able to live out several of your childhood dream in a lifetime? Good for him!
