Bad, I don't liked his title reign as a face.

Bad. He was booked as a midcarder.

His reign(s) in 2009 were much better, just a shame it didn't last longer.

Just absolutely horrible.

If guys like Batista can make you bad just by "talking" you are in serriouss trouble.

He overall had this really undeveloped character that I just didn't want to watch each week since it was brutal.

The best thing about the reign was the original cash-in on Edge at the start of Raw. Really unexpected and surprised everyone. It all went downhill from there though. Punk did his best but he was booked to look weak against Batista, and JBL was hardly a big star at that point.

Just proves the talent is present in the roster but it is being mismanaged

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

They just slapped the belt on him with no build and expected something to happen. There was never a good WWE Champion in history who just won it with little hype, all the good ones had good build. But clearly Vince had no idea what to do with Punk that far back anyways, like Heyman said, just signed him cuz he had buzz. Plus he was a terrible face and seemed nice and was never arrogant, didn't seem like Punk at all really.

The only reason he won MITB that year in the first place was because Jeff Hardy went and got suspended. So Punk was just kind of a default WHC that year.
