The Reign vs. The Streak

434 days

Of course, CM Punk has some impressive credentials of his own. The longest WWE Championship reign of the modern era, his is a streak that lasted a staggering 434 days and saw the straight edge assailant defeat the likes of John Cena, Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan and The World’s Largest Athlete, Big Show. Over the course of his historic reign, Punk survived Triple Threat Matches and a Hell in a Cell encounter against the monstrous Ryback, as well as battling an injury that ultimately led to knee surgery, all in an effort to live up to the haughty standards of being The Best in the World.

With title threats literally around every turn, to think that, in today’s WWE, Punk held onto championship gold for so long is almost unfathomable. But it will be that tenacity, that win-at-all-costs mentality that just may give Punk an edge against The Deadman at The Showcase of the Immortals.

But one cannot discount the effect of WrestleMania itself when the Chicago-made Superstar steps into the ring with its greatest performer. (REIGN VS. STREAK PLAYLIST)
