Punk/Cena re-watches (from any event) expose the matches a lot. I've yet to re-watch any of them though but I know if I do my opinion will change so much.
I had their NOC encounter at ★★★★ and that may have been being generous. To me their absolute worst is their RAW 2011 match. Talk about a finisher fest.
The problem with Punk/Cena is that once you've seen one, you've pretty much seen all. It's the same chain wrestle for a bit, bust out a sub, counter it, Punk hits a GTS, Cena kicks out, Cena hits AA and Punk kicks out, Punk attempts to hit a high spot but misses. Some more finisher kick outs. It's just the same crap all the time. It's like watching a watered down version of an ROH match. And by watered down I mean, it's missing about 20 more kick outs and a couple more high spots to be classified as an ROH match.
