Edge top 5:

1. vs Cena (Unforgiven 06) - ****3/4
2. vs Cena vs HBK vs Orton (Backlash 07) - ****1/2
3. vs Undertaker (One Night Stand 08) - ****1/2
4. vs Mick Foley (Wrestlemania 22) - ****1/4
5. vs Undertaker (SummerSlam 08) - ****

Honorable mention: vs Chris Benoit on Raw 05 the night after WM21.

I'm not familiar enough, so I don't really have much to work with on this list. But since we're on the tip of doing top lists for our favorites, I'll do a top 10 for Chris Benoit as he's my favorite.

1. vs Kurt Angle (Royal Rumble 03) - *****
2. vs HHH vs HBK (Wrestlemania XX) - *****
3. vs The Rock (Fully Loaded 00) - ****3/4
4. vs Chris Jericho (Royal Rumble 01) - ****3/4
5. vs Stone Cold (Smackdown 01) - ****3/4
6. vs HHH vs HBK (Backlash 04) - ****1/2
7. vs Kurt Angle (Backlash 01) - ****1/2
8. vs Randy Orton (SummerSlam 04) - ****1/2
9. vs Randy Orton (Smackdown 27/01/06) - ****1/4
10. vs Undertaker vs Kurt Angle (Smackdown 02) - ****1/4

Honorable mentions: vs Jericho (SummerSlam 00), vs Eddie Guerrero (Vengeance 03), vs Kane vs The Rock vs Undertaker (Unforgiven 00), vs The Rock (numerous TV matches on 00 and 02), vs RVD (SummerSlam 02) and vs Angle (most of all, WM17).

And that excludes tag matches such as Benoit/Jericho vs Austin/HHH, Benoit/Angle vs Mysterio/Edge and TLC III. Also some highly recommended matches that I still need to watch such as the one with Angle at Unforgiven 02 and so on. Oh and it's only WWE matches, so ones such as the one with Bret Hart at the Owen tribute show (****1/2) are excluded.

GREAT JOB VINCE!
Del Rio winning the belt at Summerslam really left a bad taste in my mouth and was a bad way to end what was a pretty good show overall. Like you say Punk was mega popular at the time and WWE killed his momentum somewhat when Del Rio won.

Edge's top 5 (strictly singles)

1. vs Undertaker WM XXIV : **** 1/2
2. vs Undertaker SS 08 : **** 1/2
3. vs Matt Hardy UNF 05 : **** 1/4
4. vs John Cena UNF 06 : **** 1/4
5. vs Chris Benoit BL 05 : ****

Not very big on Edge as a singles competitor at ALL. When it comes to strictly singles matches , I can think about 10 or so ****+ singles matches from him, not great for who is supposed to be an all time great IMO. If we were going to put multi-man matches into the equation, the NM 02 tag would be number 1 , and MITB 1 would be number four (because it's the greatest multi-man ladder match of all time ) .

CM Punk Top 5 WWE (strictly singles)

1. vs John Cena MITB 11 : *****
2. vs Daniel Bryan OTL 11 : **** 3/4
3. vs John Cena SS 11 : **** 1/2
4. vs Chris Jericho WM XXVIII : **** 1/2
5. vs Chris Jericho ER 12 : **** 1/4

Punk has been in the WWE for only 6 years now, but by my estimations , I'm willing to bet that he has had more **** matches in that time period than anybody else in the WWE (yes , more than Shawn, Hunter, and Taker ) . I love a TON of his stuff and he's always been one of my all time favourites. In my mind, if he keeps at this pace for the next 5 years, it's time to start talking about him as a top 5 all time WWE superstar. The only thing that could potentially hold Punk back is injury IMO , as we have so many potential matchups for him in the future (Rock, Brock, Trips, Cena, Bryan, Taker, etc) that could get him **** match after **** match. If he wrestles Brock or Taker at WM anytime soon, we could have a ***** match on our hands for sure.

I dunno, 6 years includes 06, 07 and 08 where I'd say Undertaker had more ****+ matches in those 3 years than Punk has in 6. Then we have 09-12 WM's.

Just managed to sell my Best of Nitro DVD for $4 more than I bought it for.

Looking at those WM ticket price packs right now and I'm fucking salivating.

Yeah, Taker's last 6 Manias alone would rival Punk's best 6 matches, if not surpass them.

I completely forgot about that one! That would actually make my top five over the Flair TLC match, as good as that was. And how come @ the RVD match? I liked it enough, but not enough to put it in my top five or ten.

If we're including multi man stuff, a whole bunch of stuff from 01/02 Smackdown would would fill the top five and ten for my favourite Edge matches. The No Mercy tag and the Smackdown rematch (which I preferred to the first, actually), that elimination F4W on Smackdown, TLC III and so on. Also the triple threats and fatal four ways with HHH/Cena/Orton are often praised but I haven't seen them yet.

Every time I watch Edge/Cena from Backlash I feel bad for that fan that gets hit by Edge when Cena does the AA into the crowd. The guy stays down for a while.

Loved the Edge/RVD match, plain and simple. Both men worked fantastically in that match and the only thing I didn't really like was the ending (mainly due to the big Edge mark in me wanting Edge to win and feeling that was his time to take the WWE Title). It's the type of match that I have a secret love for. Two men going out there and giving there all for the top prize in the business with no strings attached. No personal animosity attached (or not much anyway). Just a desire to be WWE Champion. It's why I also love Benoit/Angle RR and Punk/Bryan OTL a lot. Now I don't put the Edge/RVD match anywhere near those two, but the same idea applies for why I'm such a huge fan of it. Granted, maybe I jumped the gun putting it at my top 5 as I have a ton of other matches at the same rating I could've put up in that spot had I given them more consideration, but it still would remain at the same rating and probably in the top 10, top 15 no doubt.

OH MY GOD

Thank you for reminding me of that spot. My initial thought when watching that was 'wow isn't it kind of a waste to put 20 plants at ringside just so they can pull that off?' What on earth were they thinking??
