CM Punk was now the ECW Champion, not even a year into his WWE career and he would take on all competitors in the month to come.
Punk then went on to have successful title defenses against the likes of Elijah Burke at Unforgiven, Big Daddy V at No Mercy and The Miz at Cyber Sunday.
On the Nov. 6, 2007 edition of ECW, Punk retained the ECW Championship in a match against Morrison following The Miz's interference.
At Survivor Series, Punk retained his title in a Triple Threat match, beating The Miz and John Morrison.
On the Jan. 22, 2008 edition of ECW, Chavo Guerrero defeated CM Punk in a No Disqualification match to win the ECW Championship when Edge ran in and speared CM Punk knocking the wind out of him, then Chavo frogsplashed Punk for the title.
With the end of one era as the ECW Champion, there were bigger things for CM Punk.
