Phillip Jack Brook, better known as CM Punk in the show business, has been an outstanding performer in WWE for a very long period. The Superstar has been competing in pro wrestling for nearly two decades now. It is surprising for many fans to believe he is older than Randy Orton.
Punk, who is 45 currently, made his debut in the Stamford-based promotion in April 2005. During the edition of Saturday Night Heat, in a tag team match with Chad Russell Simpson, he fought against the duo of Simon Dean and Maven.
With his comeback at the Survivor Series 2023, CM Punk made headlines, and the whole arena erupted to watch their loved superstar in action again. He is back in Triple-H-led production, most probably for the last time as a wrestler. The veteran has turned 45 years of age recently and is at the end of his career. Moreover, he is older than some well-known WWE Superstars, including Randy Orton.
6. Randy Orton
Randy Orton, or The Apex Predator, is a well-known name in Triple-H-led Promotion. Few people know that he is younger than CM Punk. The 14-time WWE World Champion is 43 years old at the time and 2 years younger than Punk. With his recent return to the Survivor Series 2023, Orton looked in one of his best physiques.
The Legend Killer joined the SmackDown roster in 2002 at the very young age of 22. He has played an excellent heel character for most of his career. In 2022, he and his tag team partner, Matt Riddles, were generously loved by the fans. However, after their fight with ‘The Usos’, The Viper suffered a back injury, which sent him into hiatus. He made his return at the Survivor Series 2023 and is currently signed to Nick Aldis’ brand.
5. The Miz
The former world champion and one of the most consistent performers in the company, The Miz, has also raised above the age bar to maintain his legacy. Miz has been a Superstar and has eight Intercontinental Titles to his name. He has a segment on the show called ‘Miz TV’, where he interviews various superstars according to the storyline.

The former world champion is 3 years younger than Punk. Finn Balor has had feuds with many great superstars, and his current run as a heel character is going extremely well. With The Judgement Day going strong, it is believed that Finn Balor has a lot more performing years ahead of him.
2. Roman Reigns
The biggest WWE superstar in current times, The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, is also marching towards his 40. The 6-time world champion is now having one of the longest reigns as a World Champion, with a streak of over 1194+ days. He has overcome numerous superstars and is still going strong. However, The 38-year-old is also one of WWE Superstar who is younger than CM Punk.
Roman Reigns is a great athlete and an equally good performer. He is supposed to remain a champion till WrestleMania 40. With the way he is performing, It seems like he has many good years ahead of him.
1. Damian Priest
Damian Priest has been one of the most consistent performers in WWE in recent years. He is currently 41 years old, but he looks young for someone his age. Priest is currently a member of The Judgement Day and is the powerhouse of the group. Damian is a former United States Champion who previously won the Money in the Bank in 2023.
Damian Priest is in good shape and performs exceptionally well. He has a good number of years ahead of him and will probably get part in the main storylines or even go for the title run.
CM Punk may be getting older, but fans believe that he still has the fuel to continue in WWE. His recent comeback at the Survivor Series received a huge uproar from the crowd. The Stamford-based promotion must have a plan for him to get the most out of him in this later stage of his career.
