Been doing a lot of watching and thinking when it comes to one John Cena recently. First and foremost, I'm a huge mark for the guy but over the past few months, even stretching into last year actually he's been touch and go for me as far as his character goes. Lately though, my mood is changing once again and I'm remembering why I'm such a huge mark for him in the first place. Got to watching a lot of his stuff and have compiled a list of my top 5 favorite John Cena singles matches. These aren't necessarily his best or greatest matches, although I'd consider most of them to be, but rather, my personal favorites. So then, in no order:


Quote:
"What's more important is what's running down his leg...piss."

John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar, Extreme Rules 2012




~ ****3/4 ~


"Bottom line Cena is this, I'm gonna be your worst nightmare."

John Cena vs. Randy Orton, Summerslam 2007




~ ****1/2 ~


"Until you go through me in this business today you've done nothing."

John Cena vs. Triple H, Wrestlemania 22




~ ****1/4 ~


"You won't be able to get a fluke win this time."

John Cena vs. Umaga, Royal Rumble 2007




~ ****3/4 ~


"You may have that...but until you beat me, you're nothing."

John Cena vs. Triple H, Night Of Champions 2008




~ ****1/2 ~


Honorable Mentions: vs. CM Punk (MITB 2011), vs. HBK (Raw 2007), vs. Mysterio (Raw 2011), vs. Edge (Unforgiven 2006), vs. RVD (ONS 2006)
Thoughts, questions, comments lol? I realize that some may see these as being overrated in terms of snowflakes but they are personal favorites of mine so obviously I'm going to hold them in high regard.

My top 5 for Cena purely off memory would probably be:

Cena/Punk MITB 2011 - *****
Cena/Lesnar ER 2012 - ****3/4
Cena/HBK - Raw 2007 - ****1/2
Cena/Umaga RR 2007 - ****1/4
Cena/Edge TLC Unforgiven - ****1/4

I love the NOC match against HHH as well.

edit - The Mania 22 match against HHH probably would be one of my favorite matches of all time had HHH won. I know why Cena won, but the atmosphere (and my love for HHH at the time) made me want H to win so badly.

Great post Starbuck.

The big change I would be inclined to make is to add the match CM Punk VS John Cena, Money in the Bank 2011. Now, I am a bit biased due to being a massive CM Punk mark.

My reasoning though is that is was an example of what Cena can do against hostility. Much like ONS 2006 VS Rob Van Dam. The whole crowd, each reaction to Cena's moves. In the end, holding true to his character only to cost him everything.

However, I can see why you can also easily exclude it. Because this list is a John Cena list. Whereas despite that match being one of his performances, it was truly a defining match for CM Punk, and it was a night about CM Punk.

Thoughts? Hope I made sense

By top you guys mean favorite right? If I was listing his top 5 then my list would look a little different. These were just my personal favorites. After doing that I might do one for a few others too. Hmmm.

EDIT - That's what I'm getting at NearFall lol. If I was doing his top matches then vs. Punk and vs. HBK would be in there without a doubt. This list was just for favorites.

My list counts as both pretty much lol. Would probably put the Orton NWO 08 match higher for a pure favourites lists, but other than that I'd keep the same matches.

Like Cal, mine pretty much constituted both. I'd probably include vs HBK from Mania 23 over the TLC and vs HHH NOC 2008 over the Umaga match if we're talking strictly favorites.

I really need to watch vs. Punk from Summerslam 2011 again. For some reason I can't remember much about it other than Nash's return.

Top 5 Cena matches, off by memory:

1. vs. Punk MITB 2011 - *****
2. vs. Michaels RAW 2007 - ****1/2
3. vs. Punk Summerslam 2011 - ****1/2
4. vs. Edge Unforgiven 2006 - ****1/2
5. vs. Edge Backlash 2009 - ****1/4

HM: Michaels (WM23), Michaels, Edge, Orton (Backlash07)

I'm a big fan of the guy's in ring work. Along with Punk, these two are easily the only guys I really care to see wrestle on WWE's roster. So, why not:

CM Punk's top 5 matches: (WWE)

1. vs. John Cena MITB 2011 - ***** I need to see this match again, for the 57th time.
2. vs. Daniel Bryan OTL 2011 - ****1/2
3. vs. Jeff Hardy Summerslam 2009 - ****1/2
4. vs. John Cena Summerslam 2011 - ****1/2
5. vs. Chris Jericho Wrestlemania XXVIII - ****1/4

HM: Hardy - Cage Match (SD 2009), Mysterio (Armageddon08, ER10, CP11), Jericho (ER12)

I loved that Summerslam match until I watched it back about a month ago and it did absolutely nothing for me. Ended up turning it off before the end actually. Don't know what happened lol.

Man, I haven't watched that Umaga match in a good while. I do remember loving it though when I first ordered the Rumble PPV that year, but haven't seen it since then. I think I like most of the matches that Starbuck listed except maybe besides Summerslam (didn't really cared for what the match offered outside of wanting Orton to win).

Top five Cena matches for me in no order would go...

Cena vs. HBK vs. Orton vs. Edge at Backlash 2007 (best fatal four way EVER for me )
Cena vs. Michaels at Raw 2007 before Backlash
Punk vs. Cena: MITB 2011
Cena vs. Edge (Last Man Standing) at Backlash 2009
Lesnar vs. Cena at Extreme Rules this year

And even though it's not in my top five, Cena vs. Edge vs. Triple H at Backlash 2006 is one of my favorite triple threat matches to watch.
