Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Great lists guys. Seems to me as though the majority of people agree that Cena's top 2 would be vs Lesnar and vs Punk. Since those matches, as well as the other Punk matches and the Mysterio match from Raw are all from the past 2 years, can we say that Cena is potentially in his prime NOW in terms of in-ring work ? Seems like the feud with Punk in 2011 really lit a fire under his ass and motivated him to be something better than he was before.
2007 Cena was truly all kinds of awesome, but in that time period he never had that DEFINING career performance like he had in the MITB and ER matches. He might have been more consistent in 2007, but I feel he has more of a potential to create a classic now moreso than ever. I EXPECT great matches out of Cena now, as I believe he's one of the all time greats and doesn't get half of the respect that he deserves. Thoughts ?
