Brock Lesnar earns longest World Championship reign of the modern era
Brock Lesnar’s long list of WWE accomplishments has now grown by one: The Beast Incarnate has officially notched the longest World Championship reign of the modern era.
Lesnar’s ongoing run as Universal Champion surpassed the previous marker, CM Punk’s 434-day stint as WWE Champion that stretched between 2011 and 2013. Lesnar’s advocate (and, coincidentally, Punk’s former hype man) Paul Heyman commemorated the occasion by taking to Twitter.
Congratulations to @BrockLesnar for day #435 as the reigning defending undisuputed @WWE #UniversalHeavyweightChampion. This is yet another historic accomplishment for my client, the longest consecutive-day tenure as a globally-recognized champion in the modern era! pic.twitter.com/bVAhhBtdKT— Paul Heyman (@HeymanHustle) June 11, 2018
For the record, this is just the beginning of a long list of history-making achievements my client @BrockLesnar is perepared to rack up during the next 12 months. And that's not a prediction ... THAT'S A SPOILER! pic.twitter.com/zebxabvbeG— Paul Heyman (@HeymanHustle) June 11, 2018
That Lesnar has powered his way into the history books is impressive in and of itself, but given that no challengers have yet to emerge for The Conqueror’s throne, the most awe-inspiring aspect of his reign isn’t that it has lasted this long, but that it seems unlikely to end anytime soon.
