People can keep counting the days on CM Punk's title reign all they want. He will never reach the record held by Bruno Sammartino.
Sammartino was the WWWF Champion for 11 total years across two reigns, but it was the loss after his longest reign that stung the worst.
Sammartino lost the belt to Ivan Koloff in a technical clinic that, for some reason, was never filmed or televised.
To this day, the reign of over seven years is something looked at as legendary and almost mythical because for something like that to happen in today's wrestling world would be nearly impossible.
Sammartino ended up winning the title back and held it for another astonishing 1,237 days.
