All this talk about 2012 made me go back and watch a few matches from earlier this year to make me re-evaluate my opinion on the top matches ;

Brock-Cena ER 12 : *****

It's the match of the year. Period. It's amazing how great Brock was in his comeback match as compared to Rocky at Wrestlemania XXVIII. I don't think I'll ever forget this match as long as I live, and if I could take one story told in a wrestling match this year and say it deserves to live forever , it would be the imagine of BROCK destroying everything in his path with Cena basically catching him with a few big moves ; COMPLETELY believeable for all of you butt-hurt Cena marks. I didn't really like the booking per se , but they kind of fucked themselves over with the whole "ROCK" deal. A top 4 WWE-PG match ever and the second best NON-UNDERTAKER match since 2004.

Bryan-Punk OTL 12 : **** 3/4

This match is the "Angle-Benoit" of this new generation of competitors, a match we can look at and say "HEY, WRESTLING WORKS" as opposed to some of the shitty entertainment the E' cranks out from time to time. These two guys went out there and sold WRESTLING in the biggest company in the world. Of course, it's not QUITE as good as Angle-Benoit but it sold wrestling better than any match since then, which leads me too.....

Punk-Bryan MITB 12 : ****

Awesome, AWESOME match that had all the ability to be just as good as the OTL match-up except there were a few story flaws that really pissed me off... ONE ; the focus shifted off two guys trying to be the best in the world to AJ AJ AJ AJ AJ and it really pissed me off. It was almost (but not a 10th as bad) as the Eddie/Rey angle degenerating into the shitty Dominick angle. Secondly and most importantly, the kendo stick inclusion made AJ's incorporation of the chair almost ENTIRELY pointless. Those two flaws deduct heavy amounts of points from the match for me in what could have been a **** 3/4 encounter. Still fucking awesome and obviously the MOTN as anytime Punk and Bryan step up they deliver.

Taker-HHH HIAC WM XXVIII : **** 1/2

Haven't changed my mind on this one at all. Still a classic Wrestlemania encounter between two of the greatest of all time inside the Cell with some amazing storytelling and great brutality. Here's one thing I didn't like and this is very surprising to even myself ; HBK's role in the match. I thought he was too over-the-top goofy in what should have been the most subtle story ever (which is what made the WM XXVII match better slightly IMO) . He gets a pass however, for one of the most amazing near-falls ever with the SCM-Pedigree combo. Fuck this match is amazing, but at the moment it's only my 4th best WWE match of the year (a travesty I know).

Punk-Jericho WM XXVIII : **** 1/2

Storytelling 101 for sure. This is the quinissential example of a match being better on a rewatch compared to when you go to see it live. I don't even need to talk about how great this match is, you should just go and watch it to be honest because I can't do justice to the awesome story that Punk and Jericho convey here. I'm a big fan of the ER rematch, but that match doesn't even touch this one ... AT ALL. The DQ rule and how Punk sold it, being a man that was possessed but had to keep his calm = JIZZ.

"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
