    Assuming Punk was working 3.5* matches a week he'll have done (434/7) X 3.5 = 217 matches in this reign.

    I can't find anywhere to see what sort of schedule they worked before Raw started so I'm guessing:

    Let's say Sammartino worked 2 matches a week: (2803 / 7) X 2 = 801 (round to the nearest whole match)
    Even if he only worked 1 match a week during his reign it's 400.

    Soooo, to answer your question: No. Odds are that Bruno Sammartino and possibly Buckland and Hogan will have had more matches during their reigns.

    * Raw, 2 house shows weekly and a PPV once a month minus time off injured and any others he missed (I guessed)

    Ps. I only did all this because I realised this will be my 600th post and a round number deserved some numbers. As a great man might say, "You're Welcome!"
    You're either a genius at math, or you have way too much time on your hands.

    I'll buy that math. If we're talking about how much Punk was forced down our throats until he started losing flavour....compared to Hogan....about the same. Which is to say - way too much.

    5 minutes, google and a calculator while I watch Air Crash Investigation. So yeah, probably too much time on my hands.

    Considering that Punk had a whole host of superstars lined up who could easily hold the title, Punk's reign is more impressive (No bias). Bruno had jobbers, Backlund was too advanced for his competition and Hogan had a lot of stains to wash out of his shirts.

    That's a good point. To have a run of over a year these days is definitely a big deal and all credit to Punk for achieving it. But...numbers don't lie and he probably didn't work as many matches in his reign. Does that make a difference? In my opinion: no. CM Punk has cemented himself as one of the greats of this era and he's only 35(?) so there's plenty more to come.

    I don't think Punk is the longest reigning champ per defenses. It was common knowledge for me growing up that Bruno was the longest reigning champ in the WWE, WWF, WWWF.

    Now to back up someones point about Hogan defending his championship constantly I can testify to that. I grew up in the bay area Oakland SF area and was at tons of AWA then WWF events. Every house show with the exception of about 3 That Hogan did not main event, he defended the title and won. I saw him defend the title off the top of my head live against names such as:

    Roddy Piper
    Paul Orndorff
    Randy Savage
    King Kong Bundy
    Magnificent Muraco
    Big John Studd
    Greg Valentine
    Dr D David Shultz (I believe Hulk was champ during that match)
    Brutus Beefcake
    Volkoff
    Shieky Baby

    So Hogan defended the sh*t out of his first 4 year run as champ.

    I would think he has defended the title more compared to the 4000 days so i would say yes. Seen as there are no records dating back to then involving title defenses we will never know.

    This.

    To the OP you mean who had the most title defences in one reign. Just because he fought more, doesn't make it longer, technically. Yes, if you spread each defence out to the longest period (whichever champion had the lowest defences per week). Unfortunately, I wouldn't say live events really count as they are usually just there to gauge new feuds/test things for upcoming main shows.
