Geez, Punk marks overrate the f**k out of him. No he's not going to hold it for 7 more years. WWE's trying their best to not even make his current reign stale. If the Punk marks are calling him the best ever only because he drills it on your head every single promo, then you haven't watched wrestling long enough since there have been people that were and are far better than him in the ring and on the mic. He's good, but come on, I wish people would stop putting him up there with the greats.

I wouldn't want ANYONE holding it for that long. Sammartino's reign would have bored me to death. 1 years is about the limit and even then, you really have to book a reign well for it to work.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

Sammartino held it that long back in the day because he didn't have to contend with wrestling at least two matches against members of the roster every week. Even Punk would laugh at this and say it's stupid.

Flatley my dear, I don't Riverdance.

Re: If CM Punk held the title until July 25, 2019....

you have 6 poll options and not one of them is right for me. there should be a 'why would we want anyone to hold the title that long regardless of how much we like them?'

you are what you love, not who loves you.

I'm a huge Punk fan but seriously.... how in the world are we even discussing this?

In this era its impossible to have such long reigns, we aren't in the 60s anymore you know...

It's not about if Punk is good or not, CM Punk is definitely the best in the WWE now, but I will be against even the likes of Austen, Rock, Taker or HBK to hold the title for that long.

In this era, people gets bored of something easily.

Even if some one like the Undertaker or The Rock won the title in 2004 and kept it up until now, the WWE would have been out of business...

No one should ever hold the belt that long, regardless. Only reason it kinda worked with Bruno was because they weren't working even close to the amount of big shows they do now.

Rusev | Sami Zayn | Dean Ambrose | Alberto Del Rio | Jack Swagger
Timothy Thatcher | Chris Hero | Scott Dawson | Dash Wilder | Roderick Strong
Summer Rae | Charlotte | Carmella | Becky Lynch | Paige

Panthers - Red Sox - Nuggets - Mets

I'm amazed that they've let him get anywhere near the year... if they let him near Sammartino's record that'd be mind blowing (and insane in the modern wrestling industry).

For the record, IF (and I truely am not entertaining the idea with any sincerity) they did make Punk the absolute top guy and kept him champion for the next 7 years or so - I personally wouldn't let him surpass the record. I'd have some genuine prospect beat him the week before the record. That kind of rub would be up there with beating the streak.

Fans can barely tolerate a year long reign today, 8 years would not slide. When Bruno held the title, things were different than they are now. You can't run a TV Show with a 8 year reign.

Fan of Daniel Bryan,Seth Rollins,Kenny Omega,Dean Ambrose,Brock Lesnar,Antonio Cesaro,Randy Orton, Kazuchika Okada,Shinsuke Nakamura,Tetsuya Naito,and Minoru Suzuki

It's not that guys like Punk & Cena aren't good enough to be a WWE Champion for that long, its not going to happen because we are in a different era. How many times a year did Bruno Sammartino wrestle, how many title defences. He wasn't on TV every week with a PPV once a month, so people did not grow tired of him.

Those Bruno/Hogan/Backlund reigns are a thing of the past.
