Again that doesn't change the fact that CM Punk's World Heavyweight Championship reigns made him look worst for wear. He left all of those reigns looking like the kid couldn't hang with the main eventers. He was only able to retain the title against Hardy and Batista by disqualification and he only retained against the Undertaker because of a Teddy Long screw job. His other title reigns weren't that great either. Look at his Intercontinental title reign. Lost it to JBL in his second defense. His tag title reign with Kofi Kingston lasted two weeks and they lost it at a house show. Before the "pipe bomb" Punk was terribly booked in the WWE.
