The wrestling world is still buzzing about the Main Event that took place this Monday on RAW. That match my friends was a No. 1 Contendership Match between CM Punk and John Cena. The winner of this match would go on to face The Rock at Wrestlemania for The WWE Championship. The chemistry between CM Punk and John Cena is at an all time high and each match they have you’re left wanting more. It has been awhile since we have seen two performers work this well together, Undertaker and Shawn Michaels are still at the top of the list for me but Cena and Punk will no doubt go down in the history of WWE’s greatest rivals as well.

Since his heel turn back in the Summer, CM Punk has always walked away the victor whenever he crossed paths with Cena. They have had some of the best matches the two of them have ever had in their WWE careers and this Monday was no different. If fact I believe they raised the bar for each other, which I for one didn’t think was possible until I saw the match unfold that is now being referred to as an “Instant Classic.” Am I suddenly a huge fan of John Cena again? No. Do I think he needs to be WWE Champion again? No. Do I respect him?  Yes.

Shane, Derick and I have said time and time again that “CM Punk brings out the best in John Cena.” Seeing John Cena and Punk break out moves they normally don’t do was simply awesome! I literally almost came out of my chair when CM Punk not only went for but successfully executed the piledriver. Seeing Cena break out the power bomb honestly made me wonder why he just hasn’t been doing that since day one since he actually looked pretty natural doing that move. However one move that doesn’t look natural coming from him was the hurricanrana. I have read a few things talking about how it looks like he is power bombing his self which makes me bust out laughing because it literally looks like that from the start. To me Cena doing the hurricanrana is this generation’s version of The Rock doing the sharpshooter. Both look sloppy and neither one really need to be doing either move.

The match up unfortunately ended with Kick Out at 2’s favorite wrestler losing his chance to regain his WWE Championship that he lost to The Rock but opens up the greatest possibly for CM Punk and his place at Wrestlemania this year. With Punk having been The WWE Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion I’m pretty sure that “The Best in The World” needs one more accomplishment to add to his bragging rights, ending The Undertaker’s Undefeated Streak at Wrestlemania. I can hear the moans now and see the eye rolls but I can’t help but for the life of be believe that deep down The Undertaker WANTS the streak to end. Since Wrestlemania 24 each year it has looked more and more believable that the possibility of The Undertaker losing at Wrestlemania could actually happen. Superstars like Edge, Shawn Michaels and Triple H have pushed The Undertaker to a level we have never seen him perform at during his Wrestlemania matches.

With The Undertaker being 47 years old now and pushing himself to limits we never thought possible, could this be the year that The Undertaker finally loses at the biggest event of the year? Well that my friends is a different article for a different time. For now though I will leave you with the most incredible match that has aired on RAW in recent years.
