CM Punk's world championships
 
Reading the WWE.com article about "What's left for CM Punk to accomplish", I noticed that in the end of the article they bill him as a five time world champion. I've seen that done before and was just wondering: isn't he a 6 time world champ? 2 WWE Championships, 3 WHCs and the ECW Championship, am I right? Why do they disconsoder his ECW Title reign?

It's simple, the ECW Title is not a World Title.

Only Big Shows reign is considered, so they can say he held the world title for WWE, WcW and ECW.

Meh, they only consider the WWE and World Title now considering the ECW brand has been gone for a while now. He's still a former ECW Champ though and ROH etc.

What's left for Punk, still being the Best In The World.

If that was the case Ezekiel Jackson would be a former World champion, and that's just embarassing.

They retroactively claim its not a world title, that's all. This is good because it would devalue the WWE and World titles. They can still say Punk was a champion of ECW.

I think after the Summer of Punk he should have credited himself as a former RoH champion as well, it fits in with the original pipebomb WWE and everybody else loves bringing up.

There was a time wrestling mags didn't consider the WWE Title a world title either. I think some of the mags started to in 1986. It was considered a regional title compared to the NWA's world title.

He still needs to win the US title
