    Pointless even nominating either. I'd vote Elgin/Lethal from SCOHVI which was ****1/2 and was Meltzer's highest rated North American match of the year until SummerSlam, but that'd be like voting an independent film that only showed at Cannes for an Oscar; it could be awesome but because it didn't have a big enough budget, Argo will win.

    Punk vs. Lesnar was great, but where it falls slightly short for me is the amount of help Lesnar needed from Heyman to win. Slightly short of believable.

    Cena vs. Bryan, especially with Cena wrestling such a phenomenal match with his arm that messed up, and for the great false finish with Bryan's roll-up, only for him to introduce the Busaiku knee as his finisher.

    Cena vs. Bryan it is, for me.

    In what world is CM Punk the "ultimate" of speed?

    Lesnar vs. Punk was a good match, but Punk vs. Cena on Raw was better, and Cena vs. Bryan was better than that. Taker vs. Punk also probably deserves a mention, but for me it's Bryan vs. Cena.

    Cena Vs Bryan, easily(if we arent allowed to count NXT matches)

    I didnt really get Punk Vs Lesnar

    Cena Vs Punk literally put me to sleep with that first 5 - 10 minutes

    Cena vs Bryan. That match was phenomenal and easily my favorite Bryan singles match in WWE. Was Shield vs THN/R this year? What about Shield vs Cena/Orton/Sheamus?

    Punk/Lesnar. I must admit, I may have said Bryan/Cena if the order on the show had been flip-flopped. I was beat during the main event.

    No, it was at the 2012 TLC PPV.

    It was Ryback with Cena and Sheamus, and that was at EC 2013. I don't remember Cena/Orton/Sheamus teaming together against the Shield.

    In terms of actual story-telling, I would say Punk/Lesnar was the best match I have seen this year. KB's review summed up my feelings about it pretty well. The smart, resourceful Punk kept the monster off balance throughout the match and had him reeling, only for his emotions to get the better of him in the end and once Lesnar, the beast that he is, got hold of a weapon and was able to use it, it was game over. I also think that for one of the few times in recent memory, the commentary helped the story too.

    Cena/Punk relied a bit more on their freakish chemistry and the prize for the winner.

    In terms of story, I would put Sami Zayn's matches with the Real Americans high on the list as Zayn himself plays and sells the small but brave competitor so well.

    In a runaway. I put this up in the MOTY thread in the Elite Member Moon Base. I was scoffed at.


    Somehow not up there. Fucking hell.

    Also, Rhodes Vs Shield deserves more than three votes. That was fuckin great.

    I just want the world to know, I didn't scoff at NorCal. I just said that Cena vs. Punk on Raw was better. Because it probably was.

    Then he threatened me with physical violence and I've been running from state to state ever since.

    The fact that he can scare you with threats from about 15,000 miles away should teach all these rookies about the power of Norcal.

    It helps that he knows where my parents live, and they'd probably tell him anything after he rips open the garage door with his bare hands.

    Get me in there. I won't scoff.

    Someone needs to explain to me why they prefer Cena-Bryan to Punk-Lesnar. I don't feel compelled to argue. But I need to understand what the other side is seeing.

    I'd pick Punk vs. Lesnar, but my guess is because of the unexpected ending.

    I thought the Bryan win was obvious.

    The general rule of thumb is that when John Cena defends against one of my all-time favourite wrestlers who also happens to be a smark favourite, he loses. See: Van Dam, Rob. Punk, CM.

    I was referring to the running knee.
