2. John Cena vs. Umaga - 2007
2007 was John Cena's peak year and it started with this instant classic. After a fluke win over Umaga and ending his undefeated streak at New Year's Revolution (remember that?), Cena had to defend his title once again, this time in a Last Man Standing match.
Perhaps the last truly brutal match in a WWE ring before the shift in direction, this match silenced critics of both men. Well, people are always going to complain about Cena, but this match and the year that followed proved that the guy could get it done in the ring. You don't have to like him, but to say he can't wrestle or tell a great story in the ring is just pure fanboyism.
