Re: 500 days of punk??

Punk's losing at the Royal Rumble. As Rock said "Time's Up". Punks heel run as Champion has been to serve as putting Rock over as Champion and leading Rock as champion into WrestleMania season by beating WWEs current top heel.

He's had his time in the title scene and it's time for him to do something else.
Totally agree on the second part, post Rock/Punk he should stay away from the title (regardless of how long the feud lasts, as some suggest Rock/Punk/Cena could happen at Mania).

As for the whole idea of numbers, it's just for the kayfabe promotion purposes. Giving long reigns is the best way to put someone over to the audience, which as a fan of Punk I like to see. Now though, with it over 400 days, it has been long enough. Much like Cenas 380 day reign, once Punk's reached near the 300 mark, I felt it was more than enough, even for a mark like myself.



Thanks Punk

Re: 500 days of Punk?

CM PUNK has held it so long I think it is only right he loses it at WM29. I don't see the RR or any other PPV worthy of a champion who has had the belt so long to lose it at.

I thought that last year too (losing at Chamber). . .then he won anyway. Ever since then I've been 100% sure he was going to win every single time with the exception of one of the matches he had with Cena.

If Punk wins at RR (puke), he's retaining until WM. Guaranteed.

Then when it's 500 days, you want him to hold it until he surpasses the next title reign that was longer than his and it will continue all the way until it's Bruno Sammartino's 7 or so year long reign.

Yep, exactly. Every time Punk gets close to some new number, the new cry is always "just until he gets to the next number", then some excuse for why he still shouldn't drop it.

Reality: He should've lost it about 10 months ago and maybe won it back 2 months ago. This reign never should have happened in the first place imo. It's been boring and put no one over besides CM Punk. And tbh, I think it's arguable that it didn't even put Punk over either. He's no more popular now than he was this time last year. If anything he's less popular (and this was the case even before the heel turn).

Re: 500 days of Punk?

I love the idea of Punk breaking the 500 day mark. Carrying past Wrestlemania would be incredible and, although it seems unlikely, I'm not ruling it out. After all, nobody saw his reign going this long, did they? I'm really enjoying it.

Re: 500 days of Punk?

There is no one left to lose to, to be honest. Cena, Ryback, ADR, Kane, Bryan, Jericho, Show....Sheamus just doesn't seem good enough. Rock is really the only good choice left to lose it to. Unless Brock, Taker or Austin come out of the woodwork and challenges him for the title, which is really unlikely.

Re: 500 days of Punk?

A lot of work has been put into Punk's run, he reigned for like 8 months as a face champ, now 6 as a heel.. I'm pretty confident he'll lose to The Rock at Mania.

But I also got this scary feeling that he'll hold it until Wrestlemania, and WWE will go full circle with the longest title run in our modern era.. Ending with Punk tapping out to the STF to end the show and Superman Cena overcoming the odds yet again and saving the people from the evil champion of 17 months.

Re: 500 days of Punk?

500 days doesn't matter. Only the really hardcore fans will be drawn into numbers like that.

The majority of people buying PPVs and tuning into RAW on Mondays do not care how long Punk has been champion.

Rock is winning at the Royal Rumble because he will pull in casual fans and bring in the $$$$.

Re: 500 days of Punk?

There really is nothing else for Punk to do with this reign. He is the longest reigning WWE Champion since Hulkamania. Not to insult any fellow Punk fans, but anyone who still is unhappy with Punk losing to Rock at either RR or WM, you probably won't be happy with anyone.

Re: 500 days of Punk?

People actually think and want The Rock to hold the belt? The same guy that doesn't show up every episode?

There were rumors about Rock doing a full-time schedule for 3 months leading to Wrestlemania.

Maybe there is some truth to that.

He probably won't do house shows, but he may be a regular on RAW until 'Mania.
