16. Batista vs. John Cena: SummerSlam 2008
Though nowhere near the level of Steve Austin vs. The Rock, this was as close as WWE could get.
Batista and John Cena were arguably their top two stars and heading into SummerSlam in 2008, they were both faces. Aside from that, they had never had a pay-per-view match to that point.
Cena was having trouble with a neck injury leading up to this match, which is probably why he lost it.
Going for his top-rope legdrop, Cena saw that countered right into the “Batista Bomb,” leading to a win for Batista and giving Cena a storyline reason to get his neck repaired.
