CM PUNK SURPASSES JOHN CENA AS LONGEST REIGNING WWE CHAMP IN YEARS

By Mike Johnson on 2012-12-05 15:11:05
As of today, CM Punk has passed John Cena on the list of WWE championship reigns.

In response, John Cena wrote the following on Twitter:

"Injured or healthy, today CM Punk is the longest reigning WWE champ in the modern era. It would be hypocritical not to acknowledge and respect it. Sometimes luck is as valuable as skill, but the record books will not say it was a 'lucky 381 and counting,' it'll just say 381 and counting."

"I do wish CM Punk a speedy full recovery. He will need EVERYTHING he has to even step into a ring with The Rock. I know from experience."
