CM Punk and John Cena put on a pay-per-view-caliber match to close Monday Night Raw. Punk and Cena kicked out of each other's finishers. They fought out of submission holds. Cena even survived a piledriver, supposedly a banned move in WWE (and one Cena shouldn't be taking with his history of neck issues). More on that in a second. The Dr. of Thuganomics attempted a hurracarrana, which he should never do because he's too jacked up, and finished the Straight Edge Superstar with an Attitude Adjustment. So it's official: Cena will face The Rock for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XXIX. This was a helluva match, but one Vince McMahon wasn't happy about. On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported (subscription required) that McMahon "blew a stack" over Punk and Cena's use of the piledriver. Since we're talking about Cena and Punk, nothing is likely to happen to the guys. Since the piledriver is so rarely seen, the use of it was special. This was a great match, and one worth seeing in its entirety. Here's the end sequence.
