Wasn't Jeff Hardy scheduled to win it in 2008 and he got suspended? Yeah, better have a Punk bad reign than a Jeff Hardy one. I literally felt nothing when Hardy won the WWE title for the first later than year. I was like "eh." I enjoyed his eventual feud with Punk though, mainly because Punk destroyed him.
