Former WWE Champion, CM Punk, had named his favourite wrestler of 2020 with his choice being a contentious pick.
With countless names to choose from including wrestlers from Britain, Japan and several other countries around the world, the ‘Straight Edge Superstar’ decided that his pick for performer of the year would be part-time WWE Superstar Bill Goldberg simply because he was the smartest man in the room.
Taking to Twitter in order to undertake a Q&A with his fans, CM Punk was asked who his standout performer was for 2020, for which he only had one answer:
“Goldberg. Smartest man in the room.”
Goldberg. Smartest man in the room.

The former leader of The New Nexus was of course referring to the fact that currently, Goldberg has a two match per-year contract with WWE which he seems to have made work in his favour by the bouts in question being high-profile championship wars.
Case in point, the master of the Jackhammer recently returned on the January 4th edition of Monday Night Raw in order to confront Drew McIntyre and challenge him to a WWE Championship Match at the Royal Rumble on January 31st which was gladly accepted.
The pair will have their final confrontation on the Royal Rumble go-home edition of the red brand on January 25th where we will get the answer of who is babyface and who is heel answered prior to their showdown six days later.
