The Sportster's WWE Match of The Week: John Cena vs. CM Punk (Money In The Bank 2011)

WWE's Match of The Week features former WWE superstar and current UFC signee CM Punk battle John Cena in his home state of Illinois at Money In The Bank 2011.

After lacing the WWE brass with his infamous "pipe bomb" promo, Punk vowed to leave the company with his newly won championship, since the pay-per-view event was the last night of work on his current contract. The storyline involved Vince McMahon too, and besides not being in control of "The Straight Edge Superstar's" immediate future, the chairman told Cena he would be fired should he lose to Punk on enemy territory.

The chants were deafening that night, which gives you an indication as to how emotional it was in the Allstate Arena almost four years ago. Sit back and enjoy this incredible encounter, which received "Match of The Year" in The Wrestling Observer Newsletter Awards and a five-star rating, too.
