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

This wouldn't work, I don't care who the champion is. It worked in the 60s because this stuff was not on TV every week and they could take the show on the road and do the same matches with the same outcomes every night and nobody was the wiser. Even Hogan in the 80s couldn't get away with a reign that long because of the emerging influence of cable TV and pay-per-view. In a world where there's over 8 hours of WWE programming available every week on TV or the internet, any title reign longer than a year will be panned and fans will lose interest no matter who the champion is.

I'm fine with anyone being champion as long as I remain entertained. If PUNK could somehow keep me interested in his run as champion till than i'd be all for it.

I love him and all but that's too much for any wrestler, not only Punk. Sounds legendary tho. I will dig 3 years .

Probably 99% of you don't see this as a possibility, but I kind of do and I think it'd be pretty neat for Punk to stay champion for so long. However, I'm sure it'd get boring eventually and they'd probably stop it after the second year if they had the intention of doing the above.
Look at this way, If Bruno Sammartino was in this generation of stars, he wouldn't get that long of reign either the business has evolved from those days there are more shows/PPVs for a start and they'd run out of ideas, don't get me wrong I like Punk he's my 2nd favourite currently behind DBry but I just don't see Punk or any other modern superstar getting those kind if reigns. I personally feel he'll hold onto the belt until RR (I hope he at least gets a year though)


There has been an awakening, have you felt it

No way he would hold it that long. Not even the golden boy John Cena would ever hold it that long either.

Nail on the head.

A reign like that could only work back then because of underexposure; to try something like that with the overexposure we have now is impossible. You couldn't pull that off with 97-99 Austin.

CM Punk isn't even gonna still be wrestling in 2019 : so sense in entertaining the possibility that couldn't be pulled off in modern day wrestling. When Bruno did it they weren't on T.V weekly like they are now and didn't have a PPV every month among other differences that make this impossible.

Punk sucks and he will slip into mid-card obscurity after he drops the title

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

They need to get punk hated. And, the only way to do that is to build NEW stars up to challenge. He could have a stable that helped him win or just cheated to hold onto it. I remeber Raven's long title run in ecw. Time and time again he held onto the belt by any means necessary. It would mean more when he lost it. And, this doesn't work for Cena, because he's had too much already and the only people pulling for him are woman, and homosexual children (Not that there's a mother fucking thing wrong with that...... ah hahaha.)
