    Elimination Chamber John Cena vs. Kevin Owens - Owens Best Match Ever? *Spoiler*

    At last nights Elimination Chamber Show Kevin Owens pinned John Cena Cleanly

    I will admit that I have only been following Kevin Steen's Career for about 5 years (ROH-Alliance with Steve Corino/El Generico Feud) so I can't comment on any of his matches prior to that time period.

    I was in the crowd at Global Wars 2012 in Toronto when Kevin Steen defeated Davey Richards to win The ROH World Title

    Up until last nights match against Cena that was my favourite Steen/Owens match

    Now for me it is a toss up between the Global Wars 2012 match and last nights match vs Cena at Elimination Chamber

    Re: John Cena vs. Kevin Owens - The best match ever?

    It's not the best match ever - the amount of near falls was borderline ridiculous for me. But the tension it created was good. I expected it to be a simple LOLCENAWINS eventually but it didn't go that way and I am glad. What adds to the match is the surprise of Cena losing clean to Owens. It was a great match but not the best ever. I haven't seen many Steen/Owens matches so I can't comment on that.

    Re: John Cena vs. Kevin Owens - The best match ever?

    The title of the thread is a little misleading. I haven't seen enough of Owens to judge if it was his best match ever although the match was great. I still think I'd put Lesnar/Reigns and Lesnar/Rollins/Cena ahead as far as WWE matches go.

    The match was great though and probably the best way to introduce Owens but the extremely obvious spot calling hurt the match a little.

    Best Kevin Steen/Owens match ever, not best match ever

    It's not even close to the best match of either man's career.

    Re: John Cena vs. Kevin Owens - The best match ever?

    Is the question, is this the best match ever? If so, no. Watch some of Tiger Mask II's (Misawa's) matches, and you will never ask that question again.

    Is this Cena's best match? No. HBK match from 2007 on RAW, Bryan at Summerslam, Punk at MITB, and the triple threat at Royal Rumble this year. The 2012 Extreme Rules match against Lesnar was up there too. In my opinion, some of his 2006 matches where better (RVD ONS and Edge/Unforgiven).

    Is this Owens best match? Wrestling and match quality, no. Anytime you put him with (Young Bucks 2009) or against El Generico, you got some great matches. Best match for his career, up to this point? Oh, absolutely. He just came in and beat the face of the company cleanly. It was also huge for NXT to have their champion go over the United States champion on a WWE PPV (even if it was on the Network).

    Re: John Cena vs. Kevin Owens - The best match ever?

    Laughable claim but it was certainly great and maybe one of the best matches ever in terms of a guy's development and how much he'll hopefully benefit from it.

    Good stuff from both Owens and Mr Generous himself.


    I've been accused of being a lot of things, inarticulate ain't one of them
