#5.) Jeff Hardy vs CM Punk – 2009

Jeff Hardy and CM Punk had a bitter grudge rivalry in 2009 and it got personal very quickly. Hardy would end up defending the World Heavyweight Championship against CM Punk in a TLC main event at SummerSlam and the excitement was palpable. As expected, the match delivered on all fronts, with Hardy going full daredevil mode by jumping onto CM Punk from the top of the tallest ladder possible.

It was an incredible display for Hardy, but on the night, Punk would end up getting the better of him. After the match, however, CM Punk’s World title celebrations were cut short when The Undertaker returned to take him out.
