The first venture from Brooks into wrestling was a backyard wrestling stint named Lunatic Wrestling Federation. The league comprised of him, his friends, and his brother, Mike Brooks. The group lasted till the mid-to-late 1990s. Later Brooks found a spot in a Tag Team. In the team, he acquired the ring name of CM Punk, and the name of this group was Chick Magnets. He kept the CM in the title for his group and started pursuing a genuine career in wrestling. His friends often looked at wrestling as just something fun, but CM Punk had something better in his mind. His promotions started gaining sufficient traction, and he partook in warehouse shows in Illinois. Punk later found out that his brother involved himself in a scandal with a company where he stole a lot of money. This incident made Punk feel alienated from his brother, and they never spoke to each other since.
