It looks like CM Punk's finishing move, the Go To Sleep, will be featured in at least one game that does not star a WWE superstar.
In the upcoming game Dead or Alive 5 -- created by Team NINJA and published by Tecmo-Koei America -- a pro wrestling character named Tina Armstrong will have CM Punk's Go To Sleep in her move list.
Team NINJA recently released some balance testing game play videos of the future title to the public. It was in one of the videos that Tina shows off the move.
Team NINJA ran a contest a few months back for fans to submit move ideas for various characters in the game. Tina did not have a move like this in the previous titles as this move replaces a normal fireman's carry DDT. It's safe to assume that the change was from a fan submission. It will be interesting to see if any other pro wrestling inspired moves will be seen in the final game.

The move is shown off at 1:20 into the video:
