Throughout 2012, the members of the WWE Universe were taken on a ride full of ups and downs. Although the WWE may not provide consistently top-caliber wrestling content as they once did, it cannot be denied that every year still has great moments and great matches.
For those who stuck with WWE’s programming through terrible segments with Cyndi Lauper and disgraceful pay-per-view main events pitting John Cena against John Laurinaitis, there was some quality content to be found.
Brock Lesnar made his return to sports entertainment as Paul Heyman also returned to reinvigorate CM Punk’s title reign as a heel. Raw 1000 saw DX reunited with guest appearances also from APA, Lita and other stars of the past.
The WWE provided its best content, as always, live on its monthly pay-per-view events. Through the good and the bad, what it all comes down to in the end is the wrestling content that the WWE provides. Despite the company’s direction and the questionable storylines of 2012, the WWE will always provide great matches from time to time.
So instead of focusing only on the negatives as we all too often like to do, let us now look at some of 2012’s best. Let us reflect on where the WWE delivered last year. This is my top 10 WWE pay-per-view matches of 2012.
