CM Punk says that he is the best in the world. With his title reign now lasting over 310 days, he may be right. But to truly be the best, there are seven gimmick matches that he must wrestle.
It is one thing to say you are the best in the world. It is another thing altogether to actually prove that in the ring.
But being the best means more than words. It means more than the number of titles you win or how long you hold them.
Some of the best have never held the WWE title, such as Jerry Lawler, Roddy Piper and Ricky Steamboat.
Those wrestlers who are the true legends are the ones who can hold their own in the ring, in any type of match. They can tell a story with their moves and can hold the crowd’s attention and imagination, leaving them wanting more once the final count is made.
CM Punk is a great wrestler and storyteller. However, if he wants to cement his place in history and silence his detractors, these are the seven matches the WWE needs to put him in.
