His first reign sucked. Most people probably forgot about it. When he won the World Title in 2009, that was a better title reign.

One thing that bothered me on SVR 2008, CM Punk's game debut... is he had red trunks. Like seriously, CM Punk's first year he was basically chained inside those yellow trunks.

Punk in 2009 had a much better reign and ME some PPVs, problem? Everybody have had a bad start nobody had a perfect career from start. He got over with the fans over the years so what's you point? That you hate him.

Yeah, but that look/gimmick was too good to not document it on a video game. And then they added his mask later. If I'm not mistaken he got injured after a few matches in a normal look that he later used while in nexus.

Yeah, that whole month he had it before he opened his trap to Taker backstage about him being as big a deal as John Cena? Awesome reign =P

It seems like most people have forgotten Bryan's WHC reign too.
prob cause he was a heel and clean shaving so it wasnt note worthy to the YES bandwagoners

That's because regardless of how much value the world title has, there's a clear distinction in how somebody is booked as WWE Champion compared to World Heavyweight Champion. WWE Champion is purely for the guys they really value.

Yea what Pyro said. The World Heavyweight Championship was so, so, so second rate to the WWE Championship then. It improved a little bit when Henry got the reign up until Show lost to ADR, imo, but overall, the WHC was never "the" championship. It shouldn't have really been considered a main event championship after 2006~.

Same thing for Punk's first world title reign, it was abysmal and his first tow title matches were the shits. Knit Hat & Mark Henry? :lol Please. It wasn't really his fault, you can't possibly put on a clinic with any of those two. Plus the EC match was good, but most of them are always good, anyhow, and it was mostly focused on the Tom & Jerry-like feud between him and Big Show.

Not to mention it's overshadowed by how his title reign ended :)sheamus).

The first Punk title run in 2008 was a joke. He had a shitty feud with Batista and then JBL. They don't even have him loose the belt at Unforgiven but rather have Orton beat the shit out of him in a backstage segment then Punk comes back and hangs in the mid card until he wins MITB the following year at Mania 25. His run on Smackdown with Hardy in 2009 was 100 times better than the shit he got in 2008 when he first won the World Heavyweight Title.
