Shrug shoulders, probably. I only find world title statistics interesting to see who the top guys were/were regarded as.

Although fucking a, can you imagine? CM Punk's title reign currently is fine because at the time of winning he was the best possible candidate to hold it, an to this day he continues to be (at least in my opinion) to be the most popular candidate to hold it. Over, talented, and ever since he turned heel, damn entertaining and one of the best/the best thing about mondays.

It's what WWE will market more. The WWE champion, meanwhile, defends against all challengers and takes a backseat to the guys above the WWE title.

I mean, I just see it this way. Cena shouldn't hold the WWE title anymore. He's just too good for it at this point. Aside from Cena, there is nobody else who I can possibly think of holding the WWE title without ruining its credibility. I just don't think Cena's time for a title run is now, but I can't think of anybody else besides Punk to hold it.
So are you implying that CM Punk will never be above the title? Are you a CM Punk fan or what, lol?

This is a ridiculous idea and this would put off so many viewers.

That's exactly what I'm saying and of course I'm a fan of our WWE champion. CM Punk will never be above the title, there's just something about him that doesn't give the same feeling somebody like Kurt Angle or Cena does. I also asked you a question and I got no answer. At the current state, excluding Cena, who can you name that deserves the WWE title that wouldn't ruin its credibility? Someone like Dolph Ziggler, for example, would ruin the credibility because he's not even near that level. The Miz would also ruin its credibility. The Rock is above it. I just can't think of anybody.

If you're a CM Punk fan I would imagine you'd want or expect him to not be at this level for the rest of his career; I'm sure he doesn't. Also, I don't see how your question is relevant to the topic. There isn't anyone credible (except besides Orton), but that's why you build up stars and build up their credibility so that they ARE credible enough to hold the title. There are better ways to restore the title's credibility than driving away audiences and giving a wrestler an extremely long title reign. You're still ignoring the fact that audiences will be put off by such a long reign and WWE can't afford to do that; its popularity has died down considerably in the past number of years. The business has changed considerably since the 1950's and a reign THAT long wouldn't work.

No one is ever going to come close to Sammartino's record, its just not how the business is anymore, back then the had like what 5 title matches a year? Besides every once in a while there is going to be a year long title reign, then its back to hot potato.

So what is the point of making Punk the champion for so long if there are other people who are draws, and outshine him?

I think it'd be more interesting if you could tally the number of events that they competed at in their title runs. A year as champion now is probably the equivalent to a 3 or 4 year run way back when. It's probably close to what Sammartino did if you take away all the house shows.

You really see this as a possibility?

CM Punk is going to hold the title for another 7 years? Really?
