YES! This is one of my favourite Punk vs Cena matches, but it's overlooked for MITB 2011 and the Raw match from early 2013. It's probably ignored cos of the no contest ending, but up till then, it's fantastic!
Hmm, as for Dean Ambrose, I'd probably say one of his FCW matches with Seth Rollins, only cos not everybody knew about them cos they weren't that readily available before, only in sorta crappy quality on YouTube. But then a couple of them made it onto The Shield's DVD, so hopefully more people have seen them now
Same goes for the Shield triple threat in FCW, it's a precursor to an eventual main roster Shield triple threat <3
I also really liked the first ever Seth Rollins vs John Cena match that took place at the end of 2013, in my view, it was the match that made Seth slowly start to make his presence known as a fantastic wrestler. Before that, he was sort of pushed into the background in The Shield, but he started to shine.
And I was just watching a really fun Shield 6 man tag the other day, it was versus Cody Rhodes, Goldust & Big Show from Raw in December 2013. It was a great match and had some hilarious moments in it, like when Show chops Dean & Roman ridiculously hard, their facial expressions are gold
Plus Seth gets the pin in the match and gets really excited, so excited he runs off without waiting for Dean & Roman and falls over the barricade in his excitement
