OTL had Christian/Orton in a fast paced MOTYC, Capitol Punishment had Punk/Mysterio, MITB was AMAZING all around. I'm not going to go the entire year, but 2011 was imo the best ring year ever in WWE besides maybe 2002.
2012 ain't over yet . Certainly wouldn't name Edge/Ziggler as a good match either tbh. Didn't think it was good at all. They worked the match horribly considering the stipulation going into it (Edge not being allowed to use the Spear; if he'd worked it like HBK did against Orton when he couldn't use the Superkick, it could have been awesome). Also Orton/Punk for me wasn't that great (WM was alright, didn't enjoy their LMS match or whatever it was). Don't recall anything Cena did that year being good outside of Punk and Mysterio.

Not to say 2011 didn't have plenty of great shit though. HHH/Undertaker WM, Mysterio/Cody WM, Orton/Christian series, Christian/Del Rio, Punk/Cena etc were all great. If I put the top 5 for that year up against the top 5 for this year that I named earlier, I'd probably go with this year overall.

Doing this on my iPhone and I don't really know formatting that well , but IMO there were 5 **** 1/4+ matches that took place in 2011 (HHH-Taker, Cena Punk MITB, Cena Punk SS , Orton Christian OTL, and Orton Christian SS) , while there has already been SEVEN **** 1/4+ matches that have taken place so far in 2012 ( Taker HHH , both Punk-Jerichos , Cena Lesnar ER, Sheamus Bryan 2/3 , and the two ppv Punk Bryan matches ) . That speaks VOLUMES about the big time ppv performances that we've seen lately . We'd be having one of the best ppv years ever if it wasn't for the vast amounts of filler that we've been seeing on just about every big show . Too many squashes and dumb, over saturated segments . (PS: on a rewatch I bumped down HHH-Taker HIAC to **** 1/2. Didn't like what I perceived to be overkill of the sledgehammer.

If I had to rank it:

Sheamus/Ziggler > Edge/Ziggler in terms of WHC title Ziggler matches. Nothing from the Rumble was particularly strong this year.

Miz/Lawler was better than anything on the 2011 and 2012 EC PPVs, although the final interactions between Bryan and Santino were really gripping.

Orton/Punk and Mysterio/Rhodes were stronger than anything at Mania this year, Taker/HHH WM28 was slightly better than WM27 I thought. But I wasn't a huge fan of either match.

Lesnar/Cena and Bryan/Sheamus destroy ER 2011, Punk/Jericho was pretty strong albeit terribly flawed and was also better than either title match at ER 2011.

Bryan/Punk was ever so slightly better than Orton/Christian, although I was a huge fan of the pacing and intelligence in that match, especially the callback spots to their title switch on SD and Christian's seemingly hopeless efforts to defeat Orton.

Punk/Bryan/Kane was a good triple threat, by triple threat standards. But I probably preferred Punk/Mysterio from CP 2011 more, I dunno been a while since I saw that match but I thought it was one of their stronger bouts.

MITB 2011 does indeed destroy MITB 2012, with nothing coming close to matching Punk/Cena from 2011. I'd also say at this point nothing from this year's Summerslam is coming close to topping Punk/Cena II from last year, and despite Orton/Christian not being all that great I also can't see any match eclipsing it at Summerslam this year thanks to the poor looking card.

I Believe that in terms of CONSISTENCY , 2011 has been probably better overall. I just think about all the great tv matches between Punk and Cena , Orton and Christian , Rey and Cena , the raw triple threat , Punk-Del Rio , Bryan-Henry , and especially Punk-Ziggler. However , in 2012 we have the Punk-Bryan and Punk-Henry series's . A very very tough call , but since I'm in love with CM Punk practically , I might go with... Damn he has been amazing both years .

TV wise 2011 also has the really awesome Masters/Mcintyre Superstars match from May, as well as a really great sub 10 minute match between Mysterio and Mcintyre from March on SD. Mcintyre/Bourne from Superstars was also amazing for the time it got.

2 of the best PPV years in the history in the WWE are 2011 and 2012. We have had so many good PPVs and a few fantastic ones.

Money In The Bank 2011 and Extreme Rules 2012 are 2 of the greatest PPV's of all time.

2012 sure has been a great year for PPV's. The only one I didn't like very much was Royal Rumble, all others I very much enjoyed.

Speaking of 2011 and underrated matches, this match is without doubt the sleeper match of the year:



Wrote about it sometime ago.

Quote:
William Regal v Evan Bourne, WWE House Show, Budapest, 21/04/2011

Man I love house show matches, seeing Regal employing his various schtick is a joy to watch and something he very rarely can do anymore on television (if he ever even has a match). Him begging Bourne into accepting his hand whilst whispering to the crowd to shut up was brilliant. The match has some nice chain wrestling like in the Bryan match and Regal bumps remarkably well for his age and physique on a few of Bourne's monkey flips and arm drags. The match also features a lovely armbar sequence where Regal locks it in, survives a Bourne headscissors, counters into a bodyslam all whilst keeping control of the armbar. He throws a few more stiffer strikes than in the Bryan match especially the knees, and Bourne being kept on the mat for so long always works in building the crowd's anticipation for his exciting offence. Crowd noticeably gets livelier as Bourne starts to fly and there's a lovely set up for the Air Bourne. Great match!

That was a fun way to spend 10 or so minutes. Don't think I'm as high on it as you but it was still a good match. The handshake thing and armbar sequence are great, really liked the finish too. Bourne made some of those strikes look legit painful too. I think there was something like a running elbow he took which just looked nasty.
