When anyone mentions who they believe was the best champion, you often hear names such as The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H, Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair.
I'm adding another name to that list: CM Punk.
With the industry being dominated by one man over recent years (John Cena), the WWE has focused its spotlight on a unique individual in CM Punk, and it is paying dividends to the industry.
It has been years since the WWE has had a champion of the caliber that Punk possesses. I will analyze just some of the reasons why Punk is the best WWE Champion in years.
