We've seen John Cena vs. CM Punk a number of times already.
WWE managed to make that match exciting this time around as well, having it feel like a big-time main event.
Both wrestlers kicked out of finishers several times. There was genuine surprise in the TD Garden more than once.
Punk and Cena's chemistry shined again, and in a feud that has seemingly run out of places to go, will surely continue. Their match made them look superhuman at times.
They were drawn as tough guys unwilling to relent.
Punk does come out of it looking a bit lucky, but that kind of championship survival is a staple of heels. It evokes Ric Flair, who seemed on the verge of losing his title so often, only to leave the building still wearing the gold courtesy of a fluke or a pair of brass knuckles.
It will be interesting to see where Punk's character goes from here.
A successful pay-per-view ended on a great match and left us wanting the story to continue. You can't ask for much more than that.
