WINNER: CM PUNK vs. BROCK LESNAR (SUMMERSLAM)
A fantastic match should tell a great story. Check. It should be physical and hard hitting. Check. It must leave your audience emotionally invested where they stand back in awe. Check. I remember watching this match and being emotionally spent. This match had an awesome mixture of hardcore wrestling, brawling, submission wrestling and a one-sided power game. Paul Heyman’s involvement was just a magnificent addition to this match that put it over the top. The awesome part about this match is that both men brought so many different fighting styles that it left wrestling fans (myself, at least) wondering how exactly this match would be executed. Overall I classify this match as a brutal and physical work of art.
