That doesn't even make any goddamn sense. If Punk couldn't get established when it MATTERED in 2011 at his hottest, he damn sure isn't gonna turn the corner in 2013. His problems go back to Nash power bombing him every week and getting no payback. His problems go back to HHH beating him for NO REASON and then him accepting it the next night and becoming his tag partner. That's why CM Punk's reactions has never been the same and why he doesn't draw. Because all of this crazy talk about "going for the big buyrate" and all of that...let me tell you something..when Rock gets too busy at some point and they can't depend on him, CM Punk and John Cena aren't gonna cut it. They'll run to Austin..they'll run to somebody. GUARANTEED. They're lucky Raw is getting as high as rating as it's getting with this horrible show content by the week and Cena kicking out of 5 finishers in one match.
Kayfabe or work, that is still impressive. What does it say about somebody's standing in the company that they will just let somebody have a 400 day reign? Only a very select few have ever had such a reign. Only John Cena has even gotten close to 400 days. Think of the greatest superstars in WWE history who never had a 400 day reign. Austin, Rock, Savage, Bret, Shawn Michaels and none of them got a 400 day reign. Think about this: The Miz's WWE Championship reign was the first title reign in three years to exceed 100 days.
Putting a championship, much less the main belt of the company, on somebody for 400 days isn't something you just do to anybody. This shows Punk is an established star and it will further it if he wins against The Rock or faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania.
