Re: If CM Punk held the title until July 25, 2019....
I'm amazed that they've let him get anywhere near the year... if they let him near Sammartino's record that'd be mind blowing (and insane in the modern wrestling industry).
For the record, IF (and I truely am not entertaining the idea with any sincerity) they did make Punk the absolute top guy and kept him champion for the next 7 years or so - I personally wouldn't let him surpass the record. I'd have some genuine prospect beat him the week before the record. That kind of rub would be up there with beating the streak.
