It might be a little early to say this, but I'll be shocked if another match this year tops Bryan vs. Punk at OTL. That was old school wrestling with loads of ring psychology and storytelling at its absolute best. The crowd was hot as hell for it too, which surprised me considering how rarely the WWE gives us this type of match nowadays. The ending was perfect as well and practically guarantees another match between these two. Not bad for a match that was clearly on the backburner in terms of hype due to the Cena/Laurinaitis circus that no one cares about.

Okay, I take back my statement--maybe Punk/Bryan II can top their OTL match.
It was better than Cena/Rock or Taker/HHH at Wrestlmania? That's high praise.

Right now I'm in one of those lulls where I just can't get into wrestling. With this Laurenitis crap and hearing Raw is going to 3 hours long weekly (a move that is a mistake), nothing strong is happening right now. Things might get better for Money in the Bank and Summerslam though, which was the case last year.
I thought Punk/Bryan was better than Taker/HHH and I honestly don't remember much of Cena/Rock beyond Cena doing the worst People's Elbow in history before losing the match.
