I don't think that's fair though, the big gold belt hasn't been in WWE circulation that long... especially when you compare it to the WWE Championship. I'm not even sure what measuring stick they're using for CM Punk's reign since they did that list on WWE.com for the last 25 years as opposed to its entire history. CM Punk's about to creep into 13th longest reign, and even though that's much lower than 5th for Sheamus, you're talking about a belt starting in 1963 vs 2002... or 50 years vs 10 years if you want to look at it that way.
I guess bottom line I'm saying that 5th longest reign out of a 10 year title history isn't overly impressive. If he breaks into the top 3 or gets close to it, I think it's worth some commotion.
not sure i agree, sheamus was booked as a beast heel in his earlier days, destroying cena, hhh and many others, he deserves everything he got! dont think he's the best ''face'' in the world, but he does a solid job and his moves seem really over with the crowd
