CM Punk vs. Samoa Joe, Joe vs. Punk II 2004

Long before Punk was burning up the WWE ring, he was turning in five-star matches with Joe in Ring of Honor. Their series in 2004 produced the first five-star rating from the Observer in North America in seven years, actually, and it was a 60-minute time limit draw, same as the first match.

Watch the match that would help produce the best selling ROH DVD of all time:

Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair, WrestleMania 24

By late 2007, it was clear Flair was winding down his in-ring career, at least with WWE. So they turned it into a storyline and had him go on a farewell tour that ended with the greatest performer who ever stepped inside the ring, Michaels.
