I hate to point out the obvious but I think John Cena’s year plus title reign in 2006-2007 was the best. We hadn’t seen a year long reign in over a decade and Cena defended against a variety of opponents. His title win against Edge at Unforgiven was probably among the top two or three matches of 2006. He ended Umaga’s undefeated streak at Revolution and also beat him in a thrilling submission match at the Royal Rumble. Cena made Mr. WrestleMania tap out in the mania main event. He also successfully defended in four way and five way matches. He then successfully defended against opponents with different styles in Khali, Bobby Lashley, and Randy Orton. If not for an injury that sidelined him for four months Cena’s reign could have just kept going. Cena had already been the top guy but I think that reign brought him to another level.

Had a great feud with HBK over the belt as well. Like this title reign or not it really established HHH as a dominate force for years to come.
This reign is second after Cena's in my opinion. I know a lot of people hated it but I thought it was great. Triple H was head and shoulders above everyone else on Raw at the time and he deserved that long reign. I just he didn't drop the title to Michaels at Survivor Series so we could count his two reigns in 2002/2003 as one.
