Best WWE John Cena Matches
6. John Cena versus Randy Orton, WWE Bragging Rights, Iron Man Match 2010
Having watched the match in its entirety, I have sort of developed mixed emotions towards the match. Iron man matches have been extremely difficult to perform because of the difficulty level in keeping the crowd entertained and involved.
It’s genuinely hard to believe how these guys pulled it off in a splendid show of talent maintaining the momentum all through the math with an unbelievable chemistry between them which I believe is the distinguishing factor between this match and others in the Iron Man matches conducted thus far. Nobody can absolutely deny this fact no matter how much they like or hate either one of the wrestlers.
5. John Cena versus Shawn Michaels – Monday Night Raw 2008
Shawn Michaels and John Cena do not have much in common between them. Cena tries hard to be everybody’s man and performs most of his wrestling moves relying on fist punching based offense tactics. The beloved of the fans, the flashy and flamboyant Shawn Michaels is graceful, athletic and widely reputed to be one of the top technically sound wrestlers ever to have performed inside the ring.

Some 40 minutes into the match those expectations were shattered to pieces by a genuinely spectacular match between the 2 wrestling stars that panned out much better than their usual styles should have permitted thus earning this match the 5th place among the top 6 matches of Cena as a World Wrestling Entertainment professional.
4. John Cena versus Shawn Michaels, World Wrestling Entertainment Wrestle Mania XXIII
It was the year 2009 and John Cena was the current leader of the World Wrestling Entertainment jungle. He was riding the wave of success at the peak of his career when suddenly he faced a challenge from a totally unexpected quarter from a man nobody would have even thought would step up and put up a challenge. It was none other than Mr. Wrestle Mania him self.
By the time the bell rang, these 2 men not only paved the way for a memorable and once in a lifetime fight to the finish match, the contest between them was so good and thrilling that even Chris Jericho had stated that this was the match that had prompted him to get back into the ring from a self-imposed early retirement out of sheer guts to carry on despite debilitating injuries and the heavy toll wrestling took on his body.
3. John Cena versus CM Punk, World Wrestling Entertainment Money at the Bank 2012
CM Punk sort of manipulated World Wrestling Entertainment on its own turf to exact vengeance by getting authorization for a title match in his home town of Chicago. If he loses, he was a goner. If he wins he would leave anyway, but at least he would leave World Wrestling Entertainment as a champion creating WWE history in the process.
Chicago fans were able to sense gusts of change coming and their native beloved hero rode that wave of success receiving a hero’s welcome from the home crowd, while John Cena himself faced what could be termed as toxic venom from the jam-packed crowd ranking the match as the 3rd among the top 6 matches of John Cena as a World Wrestling Entertainment professional.
2. John Cena versus Bobby Lashley – World Wrestling Entertainment Great American Bash 2008
Bobby Lashley and John Cena do not feature truly on top of the hall of fame of technically great wrestlers. John Cena was sort of pulling off several best performances of his career in a row till that point, but there had been 1 thing that he has never even come close to pulling off.
Almost always earlier John Cena had wrestled guys substantially stronger and better experienced than he to make him look better, but in this case he was the one with the better experience and expertise and he took the sole responsibility to ensure that the match panned out in his favour.
1. John Cena versus Edge, World Wrestling Entertainment Backlash 2010, Last Man Standing
This is the number one match in John Cena’s entire career figuring right on the top among the top 6 matches of John as a World Wrestling Entertainment professional. One can argue about a couple of other matches that were really good, reasonable arguments too, though this was the feud that will define John Cena’s illustrious career.
