#5. John Cena vs. John Bradshaw Layfield (Judgement Day 2005)
Cena feuded with John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL) since WrestleMania 21 where Cena won his first WWE Championship. The contest at Judgement Day was a conclusion to their epic rivalry, which was an "I Quit" match. It was Cena's bloodiest encounter in the years to come. JBL busted open Cena's forehead with a chair shot, but Cena returned the favour by throwing JBL through a television monitor.
Both the wrestlers were bleeding during most of the match that lasted almost twenty-three minutes. JBL said " I Quit" when Cena was prepared to attack him with an exhaust pipe and thus, retained his WWE Championship. After the match, Cena stood tall on top of the ring with blood covering his entire face.
