Brock Lesnar is an untouchable superstar in the WWE. After dominating the entire WWE roster over the past few years, he is heading towards another accolade. If he continues to be on a hiatus, then there’s no one stopping him from shattering the all-time record held by CM Punk.
The latterly mentioned superstar is the longest reigning WWE Champion in the modern era. Punk held it for a record 434 days which is soon to be overtaken by the Conqueror. On the other hand, Brock was the one to end the streak of the Undertaker, as well.
As of 7th May 2018, Brock Lesnar completed the 400th-day landmark, as the ‘reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion of the world’. His next title defence is expected to happen at the Money in the Bank PPV event which will happen on 17th June.
Until then, the beast will hold the title for 441 days. So, it is almost evident he is setting a new world record in the WWE, sooner. The fans will not like this considering he defends the title, occasionally. But, putting the title on Brock Lesnar is best for the company which is why they are allowing it to happen.
CM Punk started his 434-day title reign at Survivor Series 2011. It was in a singles title match where he defeated Alberto Del Rio to capture it. Throughout the year of 2012, the Chicago-native kept his hold on the title. The Rock returned to challenge him at Royal Rumble and eventually dethrone him in January 2013.
On the other hand, Brock Lesnar won the Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 33 defeating Goldberg. Quite predictably, he started a lengthy reign. Over the 2017-28 season, he defended the title on six times, only. His latest title defence was against Roman Reigns at the Greatest Royal Rumble PPV event.
The creative team might have already planned to let Brock Lesnar create this record. It should be the sole reason why Roman Reigns failed to win the Universal Championship from him.
At this point, the biggest question is who is going to dethrone him from the title reign. Braun Strowman is the most likely name to do the job.
