Yeah I think you're right about Hardy being scheduled to win MITB. That would have made a lot more sense.

Re: CM Punk 2008 WHC reign - good or bad?

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.

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.

Re: CM Punk 2008 WHC reign - good or bad?

Was a terrible run, when you have the champ who doesnt even lose the title in a but from a backstage beatdown it can never be good.

Btw I did love how he brought that up years later in his feud with Orton lol.

Not only was it bad, but Punk KNEW it was bad. If you want a prime example of the WHC basically serving as a prop, that was it.

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.

If he had defended the title and lost it, then it would've been better imo, losing without even being in the match was very odd to say the least.

Re: CM Punk 2008 WHC reign - good or bad?

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.

Check out the pilot for my webshow WISHFUL THINKING. It is a show about a college student who fucks up his day and a Genie grants him the opportunity to do it all over again and he finds new and creative ways to fuck it up even more.

Watch Episode 2 of WISHFUL THINKING
The Test: Rob gets caught cheating on a test and has a chance to go back and do it again

Watch Episode 3 of WISHFUL THINKING.
The Date: Rob tries not to fuck up a hot date and does it anyways.
