Why even blame the wrestlers in the first place, though? At the end of the day, don't the powers that be and not the wrestlers themselves have the final say in anything? Depending on who you talk to, either Punk or Cena or both are a manufactured product, with Punk the dark to Cena's light. Not trying to argue with you, but if anybody is to "blame" for anything, it's the 'E.

I admit I find the original question a bit strange because I think it's somewhat invalid given that this is an entirely different era. I don't mean WWE "Era", I mean the eras of pro wrestling and the world itself. Punk's reign, imo, is simply not applicable for several reasons I'm not able to coherently form at this late hour, but see the above for one important one.

Wrestling back then consisted of punches, suplexes, clotheslines, rinse and repeat. Not that impressive.

I'm with the poster further above, to be honest. I don't think you can compare Punk's title reign to Sammartino's. Then again, this is a completely different era of "wrestling". Cena's nearly year-long title reign had people in uproar after month 3-4, whereas I haven't seen too much negative outpour towards Punk's 400+ day reign.

Nope. WWE and creative screwed it up far too much for it to be even considered anywhere close.

Lol its so true, he's not even the biggest star during a down period, AND he gets upstaged by retired dudes. CM Punk's my favorite, maybe of all time, but he just doesn't compare to someone who carried the company on his back for 11 yrs.

And Punk's entire claim to fame is that he acts real, but no one actually think he's real. For over a decade, Bruno Sammartino was the most important performer at maintaining the illusion of reality. Punk maintained the illusion for 30 seconds tops, when he said in an off-camera interview "I'm not re-signing, I'm done with the company." Great job, Punk.
