I understand why a lot of guys didn't like it.

Honestly? I didn't like anything about the reign other than the BWG promo and ER match with Y2J.

Some people judge his title reign because they think he sucks. You know the truth is if Punk had guys like HBK, Edge, Eddie, Taker, etc. In his reign it will have been one of the top reigns ever. The roster is so thin he did the best he can and just like you said OP he was the best thing from last year. Punk reign tho had one of the best matches that I can remember for a title reign.

I think it's because

A) He didn't draw or wasn't a big enough draw

B) When he was a face, he was seen as too crowd-pandering

or

C) When he was a heel, he repeated himself with the whole "Respect" schtick

Personally, I really enjoyed his reign. It got some damn good matches with Del Rio, Ziggler, Jericho, Bryan, and Cena out of it. It also had nice rivalries with Jericho and Bryan, and his heel run was awesome even if he did repeat himself. Adding Heyman as his manager to his heel run was a nice touch as well. Plus, it's great to see my favorite wrestler on the roster get a lengthy world title reign, so I may be biased with my opinion lol

What's BWG stand for? OHHHH
yeah, that was the shit.

I can see why people didn't like as well. It definitely had it's crap and filler moments and I think that's just what sticks out in the mind sometimes. But they have to ask themselves if anyone has done anything better than some of the things and promos that Punk did during his reign (even though they were so few and far between sometimes)
and idk, I sure as hell know Cena never did a segment as good as BWG during his entire 2 year feud with Rocky

I just didn't think he performed at the level he could have and as a result, long stretches of his reign were uninteresting and pointless to me. And I was a BIG CM Punk fan before his reign. I think I still am but I don't know, haven't felt as excited or passionate about his work in a long time. I did enjoy the part of the reign where he ran around as the elitist heel towards the end but that's about it. He never was as good as when he led the SES/New Nexus.

Because nothing came out of it except putting Rock over. It was a giant waste of time. No one got built up during that reign including Punk. Punk didn't start being taken seriously and drawing until he feuded with Taker and Rock. They legitimized him....the 434 days didn't. Punk hasn't lost to a non-part timer since early 2011. Given that kind of push he should be a mega star but he isn't. Any way you slice that, it's bad. I'll be the first to admit it takes a good year to get over with and accepted by the crowd. It took SCSA a year. Punk's had 3 now and still isn't where he should be given his push. Again, not good or fair to everyone else who've busted their ass and could probably do better with a push that large. Sandow for example. Instead he's jobbing away his briefcase to fucking John SeenIt.

Because they are jealous that their favorite wrestler could not conjure up a reign that was even half as good as Punk's. And when their hero finally came to face the GOAT, he got outclassed in the ring and on the mic.

And yet he was the lowest drawing WWE champ since Diesel until Rock and Taker legitimized him. So good.

BTW you know Punk didn't conjure up anything, right? Rock wanted him to keep the belt so he could take it off a long term champ. If WWE had been calling the shots Punk would have traded the belt back and forth with Bryan in the summer of 2012. That was what creative wanted to do.

I can agree that the first half of Punk's reign was as dull as it gets. The low points were definitely his feuds with Ziggler/Laurinaitis and Bryan/Kane. During that time, it seemed like he was essentially the mid-card version of John Cena and becoming less unique as the months went on.

But after that, I think he seriously took off. Punk was a legitimate star once he turned heel and took on Heyman as his manager. I don't know about you guys, but I loved the heel promo that he did way back when Rock first returned, along with the fake heart attack segment at the end of last year. I honestly thought his heel promos were for the most part spot-on and his ring work top notch. Not much else you can really ask for. The fact that you guys choose to bury Punk's heel work while watching current main eventers like Orton and Del Rio do some of the most generic work possible really confuses the hell out of me, but I guess it is what is.

I crap on it because largely, it was extremely boring and forgettable. There were only really a couple of good matches (Bryan at OTL, Cena at NoC, Jericho at ER). The Rock series was terrible, in ring, as was his matches with Ryback. The feuds were all pretty disappointing and underwhelming. Considering this was supposedly the greatest title reign of this era, it sure didn't feel like it.
