There was an episode of Raw during that reign where he was featured for something like 30 seconds. I think that sums it up pretty well.

He was booked as an afterthought throughout, given little direction, and minimal promo time.

The drinking contest with JBL was pretty awesome though.

They would have been better giving MITB to someone else that year, and letting Punk win it for the first time in 2009. His 2009 reign was 100 times better.

I think the main diference is that Punk has always been better as a heel imo.

Getting a chance to perform as one against Hardy made all the difference.

Felt like a midcard title reign to be honest.

Didn't Punk on his DVD said that reign felt so underwhelming?

Mediocre. In an all time list it would rank pretty low because he wasn't a convincing champion and no one cared about him. Cmparative to seem recent titles reigns though it was average.

I marked out the night he cashed in his MITB but he wasn't really given a chance to shine on tv. As a Punk fan I loved the fact he was champion but I was just waiting for something to happen with his reign

Bad. Very bad. He was an absolute afterthought and didn't even grace being third or second last on the card let alone the main-event. The JBL stuff was alright, but when the champion is featured so minimally, its bound to be awful.

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.
