#5. CM Punk falls to Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania 26
CM Punk had a banger of a match against Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania 26. The two had one of the better matches on the undercard. Unfortunately, the match is obscured by a couple of main event matches that are seen as some of the best of all time.
Despite not being as memorable as others on the card, this match has everything. The athleticism between the two was on full display. Both superstars also had great chemistry with one another.
What sold this match was the build. The feud between the two became heated after Punk tried to recruit Mysterio into the Straight Edge Society. A stipulation was later added where if Rey lost, he would be forced to join the group.
Things cranked up when CM Punk targeted Mysterio's family. One of the most memorable moments of the feud came when Punk sang "Happy Birthday" to Rey's daughter.
The result of the match was largely unpredictable. The numbers were against Mysterio as Luke Gallows and Serena lurked on the outside of the ring. Rey was once again overcoming the odds.
Mysterio won, pinning Punk in the middle of the ring clean. Even with the loss, Punk fans can remember this one fondly since it was such a fantastic bout.
