Ranking John Cena's 10 greatest WrestleMania matches

Love him or hate him, more often than not John Cena pulls it out of the bag at the biggest show of the year.

John Cena is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time and nobody can deny that. The guy has been an important and established member of the company for nearly fifteen years now, and his dedication throughout that tenure has been second to none.

Cena has had one great match after the other and despite what some people may say about his in-ring ability, you can't deny his track record of high-quality bouts.

This includes matches on the grandest stage of them all - WrestleMania. On several occasions, the multi-time World Champion has been featured in an important contest at the show of shows, and more often that not he produces one of the best performances of the night.

It's that consistent quality and effort that makes him so valuable to the WWE, and when you look through his ‘Mania history there aren't too many stains on his record.

However, two of his bouts that did not make the top 10 are his bouts against The Miz at WrestleMania 27 and Triple H at WrestleMania 22. Both contests felt slow and rather lethargic, while also not really being able to reach that next level. They were solid enough, but not for the main event of the biggest show of the year.

With that being said, the next 10 choices are much more suited to an event on the scale of WrestleMania so let's run them down.


#10 Edge & Big Show (WrestleMania 25)

Edge Big Show John Cena
This bout didn’t quite feel WrestleMania worthy

As far as WrestleMania classics go, this wasn't one of them. John Cena inserted himself into the feud between Edge and Big Show heading into WM25 and in all honesty, it felt like a bit of a joke in comparison to some of the other big matches on the card.

With three Superstars as big as this, things should have felt a lot more important than they did that night in Houston.

However, it was a decent enough triple threat match, all things considered. Cena was able to lift both men up high for the Attitude Adjustment, allowing him to come full circle from five years prior when he first lifted up the Big Show for his famous finishing move.

In some ways it was poetic, but much like with Randy Orton it feels like Edge vs. John Cena was big enough to be a singles match on its own.

Nobody can take away the fact that Show was involved in a big World Title match at one of the most hyped Manias in history, but it didn't really deliver in the way many people were hoping. In some ways, it's a shame but if you're a casual fan, it's a decent enough match to enjoy with some interesting moments here and there.

Onto a bout that was the dawn of a new era.
