Weâ€™re quickly approaching the midpoint of the year and with that said Iâ€™ll begin this blog which focuses on my 5 favourite matches of the years so far.
Honourable Mention: Nxt - Tyson Kidd vs Michael Mcgillicutty
I really enjoyed their feud and wished they were given a pay per view match. They had a 3 great technical matches. For those who haven't seen any of them, I recommend you watch them all when you have some time.
5. Extreme Rules â€“ Brock Lesnar vs John Cena
This match was great. It had something a lot of matches have been lacking. A sense of realism. It was a great brawl and Iâ€™m definitely looking forward to more Brock Lesnar matches in the future. You could argue that it was just Lesnar beating up Cena for 20 mins but personally I enjoyed it nonetheless.
(Im not some massive Cena hater, I actually wanted him to win for once).
4. Extreme Rules â€“ Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan
What a way to make up for the 18 second match at wrestlemania! Great match were we got to witness Bryan as the cunning heel and Sheamus as a better version of Cena (for now). This match really helped in getting Bryan over and it also cemented Sheamus as a champion.
3. Over the Limit â€“ Cm Punk vs Daniel Bryan
Iâ€™m sure this is most peopleâ€™s no. 1 choice but if you read my last blog you know I like a good story. The 2 matches above this told a story within the match which is why this is only no. 3; Iâ€™m not saying Punk and Bryan canâ€™t tell a good story there just wasnâ€™t enough build up (4 weeks is just about right). Technically this match was amazing from start to finish and I hope for a rematch at No Way Out which will incorporate an element of story (and be main event) because for me at least an article on wwe.com isnâ€™t enough for me to want to invest myself in the feud.
2. Extreme Rules â€“ Cm Punk vs Chris Jericho
I couldnâ€™t decide whether this should be no. 1 or not but either way it was a great match which should be used as a template for PG extreme rules matches in the future. It told a great story and was definitely the best personal feud in a long time.
1. Wrestlemania 28 - The Undertaker vs Triple H
I loved this match! It had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. It told a great story throughout and HBK definitely added to it. The action was great and I thought the streak was over several times throughout the bout. If that was takers retirement match then what a way to go out although I hope he's back for one more match with Kane. So far this definitely has my vote for Match of the Year although thereâ€™s plenty of time for that to change.
Thanks for reading as always. I wanted to do something different in my blog from the usual twitter/diva/tag team/review blogs. If this is well received then Iâ€™ll consider making this a series with other topics being top 5 breakout stars so far/top 5 moments as well as other topics. Anyway be sure to leave your favourite match of the year so far below!
