Wrestlemania XXV: The Start of Another Title Reign for CM Punk?

Ali MashrafCorrespondent IMarch 18, 2009

CM Punk is one of the best mid carders in WWE presently. He first debuted in WWE on June 24, 2006. He first came close to win the ECW Championship at the annual December to Dismember pay-per-view of ECW but was the second man to get eliminated.

He again came close to make history at Wrestlemania XXIII by competing in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match, but was knocked off the ladder seconds before Mr. Kennedy retrieved the briefcase.

Punk got the first push by winning the ECW Championship from John Morrison in a Last Chance match on Sept. 1, 2007 edition of ECW.

Punk then successfully defended his title against Elijah Burke at Unforgiven 2007, Big Daddy V at No Mercy 2007, The Miz at Cyber Sunday 2007, The Miz and John Morrison in a triple threat match at Survivor Series 2007 but lost it to Chavo Guerrero on 1-22-08 edition of ECW after Edge interfered on behalf of Chavo.

Punk then won the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at Wrestlemania XXIV and cashed it in on 23-6-08 edition of Raw and won the World Heavyweight Championship from Edge after Batista had beaten up Edge mercilessly.

Punk had a successful title reign upto Unforgiven 2008, where he was to defend his title in a Championship Scramble match. However, before the match, Randy Orton and his Legacy attacked him and Orton punted him making him unable to  compete in the match.

He was then removed from the match later that night.

On the Oct. 27, 2008 edition of Raw, Punk teamed up with Kofi Kingston and challenged Ted DiBiase Jr. and Cody Rhodes for the World Tag team Championship. Punk and Kofi went on to win the tag titles but lost it to John Morrison and Miz in a live event on December 13,2008.

But, fortune was again in favour of him! Punk won the No. 1 contendership match for the Intercontinental Championship after beating Rey Mysterio at Armageddon 2008.

Punk then won the Intercontinental Championship from William Regal in a No Disqualification match on Jan. 19, 2009 edition of Raw and made himself the 19th Triple Crown Champion in the history of WWE.

He lost the title to JBL on Mar. 9, 2009 edition of Raw after JBL poked him in the eye and clotheslined him  for the win.

But before this defeat and title lose, Punk had kept a place for himself in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match of Wrestlemania XXV. Like before, will fortune favour him again and let him win another title after he wins the Money in The Bank?

Time will only tell us...
