vs. JBL "I Quit" Match Judgment Day (2005) Forget about Wrestlemania 21 or anything that came before this match, this was the bout that cemented John Cena at the top of the WWE ladder. Before this match, John Cena was similar to how CM Punk or Jeff Hardy is now. He had been fluttering through the upper-mid card for the last 2 years previously with feuds with Lesnar, Taker and Guerrero but he hadn't proven himself as one of the best in the business. Then came this match, his first WWE title defense and the conclusion of his almost half-year feud with JBL. This match showed all the critics that Cena could be this generation's Hogan or Rock. This match left both competitors bloody and bruised, with Cena bearing a crimson mask befitting the Great Muta and JBL being sent through glass courtesy of a semi's exhaust pipe. vs. Edge TLC Match Unforgiven (2006) This match will probably go down as the greatest 1 on 1 match of both of the involved superstars' careers. This match ended the greatest feud of probably this decade and elevated both superstars to heights neither would have reached a year before. This feud made Edge a bonafide main event star and no longer just an Intercontinental or Tag Team Specialist and made him into the Rated-R Superstar. This match also precipitated the longest World Title reign in 22 years. And don't forget the F-U from 15 ft. in the air through 2 tables.
