    I hope Punk wins at Summer Slam.

    John Cena is a future hall of famer

    Thanks to triple H we once again have a champion that we can be proud of, John Cena. If the WWE wants us to believe that Rey can actually beat real wrestlers, then they had better bring back the midget division. Then maybe Rey would stand a chance of winning for real, but I doubt it.

    Cena is a hack!

    @Matt.It wouldn’t suprise me if he did actually hold the record. I see him holding the title alot in years to come.

    Cena isnt the official champion punk is. Because if punk is ocntracted to the company he never loss the championship. So punk is the wrestling champ. Cena is the little girls kids champ were he gets a belt just to keep the kids happy. But they need to make a new title belt this toy design sucks.

  • The Killswitch

    Boomer-That’s the WWE and WHC combined.

  • BoomerSooner!

    I thought HHH held it like 11 times or something? I may be wrong though.

    “John Cena has now held the WWE Championship a record nine times following his title victory last night on Raw . The previous record holder was Triple H, who held the WWE Championship on eight occasions.”

    If you think about this statement for a second, you will realise that HHH was not the previous record holder, as Cena must have held it for 8 times as well to achieve 9 reigns. What it should be is the HHH is the first man to achieve that record, not be the previous record holder as that destinction would be a co-record.

    That said, it will be interesting to see if this (and Mysterios) reign is upheld as why would HHH allow the two title matches to go ahead knowing that he had supposedly re-signed Punk?
    Could we be seeing a repeat of Jericho’s win under the Mcmahon/Helmsley regime?

  • kenn

    I thought the whole reason Cena won is because now Punk can say, you are not the real champion

  • rko

    It was pointless for Rey to win the title and then lose it the same night to cena and bring back punk to soon to confront him.

    Just when you thought wwe couldn’t screw this up, they did.

  • Matt

    @kpnuttzlol

    You do know that would mean Cena would be champ until, like, 2019, and that’s very, very, VERY unlikely…or is it?

  • kpnuttzlol

    @ CM SUCKS: Here’s just some Raw stars who deserve it: Ziggler,Miz, Big Show, Morrison, Truth, McIntyre, Swagger, Bourne, Del Rio that enough?

    If Cena holds the title through Thursday, I think it will be sometime before he drops it. I wouldn’t even be surprised if they pushed him for the longest reign.

  • mark

    to cm sucks: like kingston, miz, mysterio, big show, john morrison. the list is endless u dumb fuck !!! why dont u bend down and kiss Cenas ass whilst your at it

  • Jimbo

    Even when Cena loses the WWE title he’s still the WWE Champ….that’s the point we’ve gotten to.

  • CenaSucks

    Means absolutely nothing. He holds it then he loses it then he wins it right back. He loses it to someone ese, then wins it right back off them. When was the last WWE title feud that didnt involve Cena?

    Also, I would have loved to see Rocky stay for longer, he would have smashed all records. 9 world titles and he retired at 30.

  • rocky sucks

    what do you expect from the wwe.he’s the face of the company/golden boy/poster child and the hell with the rest of the roster and us fans. punk is the real champ but why not just give cena his rematch instead of having him winning a new{not really}belt

  • V-R-A

    I thought I was watching WCW last night when Chris Benniot won the title then defended it that same night and lost it.

  • yelissa

    im sorry but cena isnt the champion punk is and cena sucks he cant wrestle.

  • Thomas

    Dam Ray was cheated last night he should have had a chance to defend
    his title during summerslam give him a chance to do this come on guys he deserves that

  • Jimbo

    Aaaaaand he’s only 33. Plenty of time to win it 10 more times.

  • RAMSES 2

    THE WWE CHAMPION IS LIKE THE WWF HARDCORE CHAMPHINSHIP NOW DAYS!!!! 3,4 CHANGES IN A DAY!!!!

  • damn123

    ill tell ya who cm sucks…the miz, i would have liked to seen a curveball and alex riley got the title. rey deserves a wwe title run, zack ryder as well jk

  • CM SUCKS

    like who MARK who!!!!!!!!!!! back up with your stupid ass comment jackass

  • mark

    why give Cena the title back so soon? they should have let Mysterio with the title to face Punk at summerslam. Cena should stay out of the title picture for a while. I like Cena but there are other wrestlers in the WWE who deserve a chance.

  • Ron

    That record should get an asterisk, since he isn’t the real champion…
