CM Punk's Near 300 day WWE Title reign

WWE.com has an article on Punk's near 300 day title reign -

Quote:


WWE Champion CM Punk says that he is “The Best in the World,” and his current title reign of 284 days adds some credence to that moniker.

Since defeating Big Show and John Cena at SummerSlam, WWE Champion CM Punk has demanded respect from the WWE Universe and his fellow Superstars. Most notably, following the victory at The Biggest Party of the Summer, The Second City Saint implored John Cena to admit that Punk is “the best.” The Cenation leader refused, and perhaps with good reason. Although the length of CM Punk’s second — and current — WWE Title reign is impressive, he is still behind Cena’s 380-day reign — his third — as WWE Champion.

That is not to say that the current WWE Title holder’s reign is not impressive. As of Monday, Aug. 27, 2012, CM Punk surpassed the Cenation leader’s first title reign of 280 days, and has already left Cena’s eight other WWE Championship reigns in the dust. In fact, the Chicago-native has surpassed a number of former champions in the amount of days with the title.

This past Monday also marked The Second City Saint’s besting of JBL’s only WWE Title reign from 2004 to 2005 and Yokozuna’s second from 1993 to 1994 — both clocking in at 280 days. CM Punk has also surpassed the longest reigns of a veritable “who’s who” of former WWE Champions.
At 284 days, The Straight Edge Superstar has bested WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hit Man” Hart’s second WWE Championship reign of 248 days, Randy Orton’s second of 203 days, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels first title run of 231 days and WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s fifth reign of 175 days. An impressive list to say the least, but giving CM Punk the respect he demands, his current reign is merely 15 days away from being longer than all seven of The Rock’s WWE Championship runs combined.

On his quest to prove that he is the best and command the respect he wants, if CM Punk can hold onto the title until Dec. 4, 2012, he would match Cena’s third reign but also eclipse those of other champions from the past. Already closing in on Ultimate Warrior’s sole 293-day title reign, Punk would shortly thereafter pass “Superstar” Billy Graham’s only WWE Championship run at 296 days. Once Punk exceeds Graham’s record, Diesel’s 358-day reign, Hulk Hogan’s 364-day second run and “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s 371-day WWE Championship tenure are all that remains on his path to tying and ultimately surpassing Cena’s personal best.

The WWE Champion says he is “The Best in the World,” and he can certainly prove it by conquering the challenges that lie ahead, including a potential WWE Title defense against The Rock at Royal Rumble.

At Night of Champions, CM Punk will have been the WWE Champion for 301 days. If The Second City Saint manages to keep the title until Royal Rumble and face The People’s Champ, he will have been WWE Champion for 434 days, teetering on the brink of entering a 500-plus day, exclusive and respected class that is occupied by only four Superstars — Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales, Bob Backlund and Hulk Hogan. But to reach a reign length that no one has come close to since The Hulkster’s began in 1984 and ended in 1988, “The Best in the World” has to overcome a Superstar who has earned and lived up to his own moniker – The Great One.

Do you think CM Punk can retain the WWE Title long enough to begin a chase toward surpassing the reigns of the all-time great WWE Champions? Or will his ultimate quest for respect be his undoing? Share your comments below and on Facebook.com/WWE and Twitter!

Re: CM Punk's Near 300 day WWE Title reign

i think the long title reign is good for the business. punk is a credible champion and he is adding credibility to the title again. proof that the man makes the title, not the other way around.


you are what you love, not who loves you.

Re: CM Punk's Near 300 day WWE Title reign

Great promos, great matches, decent angles, bringing credibility to the WWE title and himself -> one of the best world title reigns of the last couple of years. I would especially like to point out that he became the first HUGE face besides Cena in recent times. I'm gonna miss this. It's one of those rare occasions when a heel turn was a bad idea.

"Grab that fuckin business, that company by the throat, say - Hey motherfucker, I want a push!"

Re: CM Punk's Near 300 day WWE Title reign

He could make it to the Royal Rumble. I say he loses it to Cena at Hell in a Cell. They want to drag out Cena/Punk long enough to make it most of the way to RR. He beats Cena at NoC. Cena wins at Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series. Cena in a filler fued with Bryan until the Royal Rumble. Punk can fued with guys like Lawler, a pushed Kofi and more. Easy booking.

WWE Top 5 Matches of 2014

1. John Cena vs. Antonio Cesaro - ****
2. Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan - ****
3. Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton - ***3/4
4. Antonio Cesaro vs. Randy Orton - ***3/4
5. Daniel Bryan vs. Christian - ***1/4

Long reign but nothing memorable.

Plus, as everyone's said, he rarely main events.

Who was the last wwe champ who held the strap for this long and didn't close shows? Tell me because I can't think of anyone.

Over pushed. I used to really like Punk. Then he just sort of worn out on me. The guy should've lost it at MITB.

Re: CM Punk's Near 300 day WWE Title reign

It's been good... quality matches. Quality promos. Some "meh" stuff in the middle...

The thing I think I like most is that:

a) It involves a wrestler that I'm a fan of

b) It's lengthy

Still waiting for him to make this cool again.

Oh right, he just wanted a better spot.

Not that I blame him, but he seems to deflect a lot of blame and criticism and I can't see why.
