To conclude their lengthy feud, aptly touted as "The Final Chapter," Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio fought in a dramatic and fast-paced match. It featured Rollins trying to stab Mysterio in the eye, a tornado DDT on the apron from Rey Mysterio, and closed with Murphy finally turning on Rollins after weeks of build.
11. Survivor Series 2020
This PPV pitted the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Drew McIntyre against the Universal Champion Roman Reigns. After a slow, methodical start to the match, the men started going through the announcer's table and barricade, and while it almost seemed like McIntyre would beat Reigns, that didn't happen.
10. Elimination Chamber 2021
The Elimination Chamber match between Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, Sami Zayn, and King Corbin, was more violent than the main event, and at one point, Jey super-kicked Owens repeatedly while the latter was stuck in the Chamber door. The underdog Bryan opened the match and ended up winning.
9. Hell in a Cell 2020
The second match between the Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his cousin Jey Uso after their previous encounter feels like a better-told, better-executed, and better-fought match. While Jey threw himself at Reigns using various weapons, Reigns kept repeatedly overpowering him with powerful strikes.
8. Raw 3/1/2021
The clash between Sheamus and Drew McIntyre was one of the most physical and hard-hitting matches in either man's career. They took turns hitting Sheamus' trademark chest-hitting spot on the ropes and both launched their signature kicks, but only McIntyre's Claymore landed, handing him the win.
