Punk eclipses “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s WWE Title reign



From WWE.com:

Sunday, Nov. 25, marked the 371st day of The Second City Saint’s Championship reign. For the old-school stat hounds out there, that number should ring a bell — a historic one, in fact. From March 27, 1988, to April 2, 1989, “Macho Man” Randy Savage held the highest prize in all of WWE, claiming the title for exactly 371 days. It’s a number that becomes even more meaningful as CM Punk reaches day No. 372 today.

    A few statistical notes here if Punk manages to retain his title all the way to Wrestlemania.

    If CM Punk keeps the title to TLC 2012, he will beat John Cena’s 2006-2007 record of 380 days as WWE champion.

    If CM Punk keeps the title to Royal Rumble 2013, he will beat Shane Douglas’ 1997-1999 record of longest reigning ECW champion in history at 406 days.

    If CM Punk keeps his title to Elimination Chamber 2013, he will beat the Honky Tonk Man’s record as longest reigning Intercontinental champion with 454 days.

    If CM Punk keeps his title to Wrestlemania XXIX, he will not only beat Demolition’s record as longest reigning WWE tag team champions in history with 478 days but he will also beat out Hulk Hogan’s record as longest reigning WCW champion in history with 469 days.

    While most of these statistics don’t have much to do with the WWE Title itself, it shows how much CM Punk could be writing himself into the history books these next few months and cementing himself as an icon. While people may like or not like him, this is an astonishing feat for any wrestler in today’s pro wrestling world. It’s exciting just to see how far they take it.
