CM Punk vs Mark Henry (WWE Raw; 2012/04/02)
Not as high on this match as others and I didn't understand the hype for it on my first viewing, but after a rewatch I can see the neat little things I missed out on because of me getting easily distracted because of the 'YES!' chants. Looking back in retrospect, those chants may of actually hurt the match. It seemed as if the crowd were more entertained by chanting rather than enjoying the match, but at times, they benefited the match by adding Punk's comebacks. Punk still sold the damage from his previous match with Jericho and combined with Henry's awesome trash-talking really made Henry look unbeatable. This match tells the classic tale of 'underdog babyface faces huge monster heel' and it does that very well.
Best of WWE in 2012:
1. Punk vs Jericho (WrestleMania; 04/01) ****1/4
2. Punk vs Bryan (Raw; 01/31) ****1/4
3. Punk vs Henry (Raw; 04/02) ***3/4
4. Kofi vs Ziggler (Superstars; 03/08) ***3/4
5. Punk vs Ziggler (Royal Rumble; 01/30) ***1/2
Only a rough draft. Anything from this year I should watch?
