That might upset some, these days.

But no doubt the WHC was second rate to the WWE title I don't think the WHC had anywhere near as much value as the WWE title ever had.


Historical.

Yup, I clearly remember that. After Randy Orton punt kick he was buried, but he survive it.

CM Punk about his first world title run.

There was a bunch of junk that I wrote that I handed to Vince that he was like, 'ok, say that,' and I said none of that. I said whatever the hell I wanted, because I was out the door; I was leaving. I was going home, so I didn't care... What were they going to do? Were they going to fire me? Come on. I was going to Australia the next day. If they fired me I didn't have to go to Australia the next day. That would've been fine with me. But I had no idea, I wasn't like, 'this is going to be great and this going to rejuvenate me and my career.' No, I was just done. I didn't care."

Re: Who else forgets CM Punk won his first world title in 2008 and not 2011

Kinda harsh to ROH, are we? Anyways, his first reign sucked. Punk shouldn't have cashed it in at that point. It was like his first or second show as an official RAW superstar. He was still known as "the only ECW guy worth knowing".

He need to get settled, which he did...after that shitty reign. Punk needed to climb the ladder instead of being hot-shotted into a main event scene that would overshadow him. Now, if he were to cash in at No Way Out 2009, it would've made more sense since he was settled into RAW at that point. Just too early for Punk to cash-in.

Anyone who has been following wrestling since 2008 will remember that but 2011 was obviously the year that pushed him to main event star.

I remember at Survivor Series when you had Punk in the elimination match with those massive stars like HHH and they were chanting his name over anyone else. Amazing stuff.

I always seem to forget he beat Edge in 2008. I guess he was just over shadowed by real stars...Anyone else forget?Go ahead and blame "booking" go the whole 9 yeards to defend Punk's mediocre reign
I remembered it and marked out when it happened. I also remember when he sandbagged Jeff Hardy with it and went heel. What's the problem again?

Well I stopped watching in 2008 and came back in 11 again so I missed it but even I know he won worldtitles back then. Although honestly the whc shouldnt even be considered a worldtitle anymore. It went downhill when Batista brought it to smackdown.

Punk winning the title was a disgrace.
There were plenty of better guys at the time who couldn have carried it.

That was the moment when the WHC really fell from grace and never got back.

Yet Punk and his marks still whine about how he was held back, when in fact he was OVERpushed from day 1.

You mean the title reign where he was only used to transition the WHC to Raw b/c of the "draft" fuckery, with the MITB case that he only won that year b/c of Jeff Hardy's fuckery, where he never even "lost" the title, and his only real "feud" was with JBL, that title reign?

Yeh, that was some great push there
