John Cena vs. The Rock WrestleMania 28

WWE will be releasing a new DVD/Blu-ray disc set that features the company’s opinion on the best matches of 2012. Since this was not compiled by fan votes, you could say there are some omissions to the list plus some questionable choices added here.

Some of the matches added to the here are obvious choices. WrestleMania 28 matches such as The Rock vs. John Cena plus the Hell in a Cell match with The Undertaker and Triple H are present. Other great matches include CM Punk vs. Cena at the Night of Champions PPV.

There are some questionable matches hat have been added to the DVD/Blu-ray though. Why did they add Layla vs. Beth Phoenix from Over the Limit? The best divas mach this year was Phoenix vs. Natalya on Smackdown in my opinion. Also, the slow and average SummerSlam match between Triple H and Brock Lesnar wasn’t one of the best matches of 2012 either.

Criminally though, Punk’s best matches against Chris Jericho from this year are sadly omitted from the set. Their matches from WrestleMania 28 and Extreme Rules were much better than some of the matches they’ve included here. Also, Punk’s match with Daniel Bryan at Over the Limit was superior to the encounter from Money in the Bank which is included in this set. Let’s not forget that Lesnar’s match from Cena at Extreme Rules was way more exciting and unpredictable than the boring match Lesnar had with Triple H at SummerSlam.
