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?

Current TOP 15

1. Prince Puma

2. Brock Lesnar 3. Austin Aries

4. Son of Havoc 5. Dolph Ziggler 6. Johnny Mundo 7. Kurt Angle 8. Cage

9. Pentagón Jr. 10. Neville 11. Jay Briscoe 12. Drago 13. Alberto El Patrón 14. AJ Styles 15. Kota Ibushi



TOP 5 Tag Teams: The Young Bucks, The Wolves, Dirty Heels, War Machine, The Addiction



All-time TOP 5: Chris Jericho, The Undertaker, The Rock, Batista, Kurt Angle

Re: CM Punk's world championships

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.

Re: CM Punk's world championships

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.

Re: CM Punk's world championships

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

Re: CM Punk's world championships

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.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: CM Punk's world championships

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.

Re: CM Punk's world championships

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.
