For the past 25 years, WWE RAW has been the home to so many iconic feuds. The longest running weekly episodic show has provided some of the best matches in wrestling history. 

This week, RAW featured a stellar match between Seth Rollins and Finn Balor that has inspired me to write this article. Let's take a look at my picks for the Top 5 matches from the rich history of Monday Night RAW.

#5 Daniel Bryan vs Cesaro, July 23, 2013.

Yes kicks raining on Cesaro

Two of the best wrestlers in the World going at it. What's not to love? This was my legit WWE dream match at the time because those two were my favorite wrestlers.

Daniel Bryan was chosen by John Cena to face him at WWE's second biggest event of the year, Summerslam. Bryan had a lot to prove to his fans and his detractors so Brad Maddox, the then General Manager of RAW booked him in a gauntlet match to see if Bryan had what it takes to hang in with John Cena.

The first bout saw Daniel Bryan beating Jack Swagger to advance to the second match where the Swiss Superman was ready to tear him apart.

The match started with submission holds being displayed until Cesaro suplexed Bryan and mounted him with punches and elbow drops. Bryan returned the favor and the slugfest continued till both guys started the European uppercut battle which was ultimately won by Cesaro.

The finish came when Cesaro attempted to land yet another devastating European Uppercut but the resilient Bryan countered it into a small package to overcome his hard-hitting nemesis.
