In exactly 1 week, CM Punk will have had the WWE Championship for 281 days, which will make his current reign the second longest reign (passing up John Cena and JBL’s 280 day reigns) since Diesel’s 1994 title reign of 358 days. He will only be behind John Cena’s 380 day reign for the longest reign of what could be considered the “modern era” of Wrestling. When also compared to the World Heavyweight Championship, 282 and 280 are the longest title reigns for this title as well, which CM Punk is poised to pass as well.
