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.
Yeah I think you're right about Hardy being scheduled to win MITB. That would have made a lot more sense.
I'm not a big CM Punk mark, but it was bad. Mainly due to the fact that he didn't lose it in a match he had to be punted by Randy Orton. Glad he did though because I didn't think Punk was ready to be a World Champion back in 2008 especially on the flagship show.
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
He would have been ready by then if Benoit had been around to drop the title to Punk like was intended, he would have been much more believed by fans like Orton was before H buried him.

The JBL stuff was good, but other than that Punk was set behind Cena, Orton, Kane, Batista, JBL, Jericho, Michaels, and even Mysterio and Legacy. That's not even including all the Smackdown wrestlers that he looked inferior to.
No credibility at all and they made Batista into a dick without turning him heel (basically going around beating up Shawn Michaels and Punk) and then Punk didn't even lose the belt. That was fucking shameful.
