CM Punk has declared himself one the greatest grapplers in history after holding the WWE Championship for more than a year.
In an era of quick title changes and championship reigns that have lasted less than a few hours, Punk sailed past the 365-day mark on this week’s Raw.
The Second City Saint said on the last RAW the lengthy run places him above the likes of Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Rock in the historical standings.
Accompanied by his manager Paul Heyman, Punk took to the ring to set himself an unlikely target – beating Bruno Sammartino’s world-record reign by staying as WWE champion until July 2018.
Punk, who is currently feuding with John Cena and Ryback, should soon pass Cena’s best of 380 days, leaving him trailing only the mega-reigns of Sammartino (twice), Bob Backlund, Hulk Hogan and Pedro Morales.
Given Hogan’s four-year stint on top was the most recent and came to an end in 1988, that really would cement Punk’s claim to be The Best In The World…
Now here’s the montage video 🙂
And here are some Pics from his title reign and some Pics for his ‘appreciation’ night (Which I think was really underplayed!)
PS. I highlighted The Undertaker for a reason check out my next post!
