CM Punk Looks Back On 2011 Money In The Bank Match Against John Cena, Cena Thanks Him For The Moment

It's been nine years since the famous CM Punk vs. John Cena match at Money In The Bank.

The 2011 match between the two wrestlers that went roughly 30 minutes and saw Punk beat Cena to win the WWE Championship is notable not just for the match itself, but also for the incredibly loud and passionate Chicago crowd that was present that night. Punk went to Twitter to look back on the match and thanked John Cena, Scott Armstrong and the crowd for making it all possible.

John Cena would respond in the morning of Sunday, July 19, thanking CM Punk for the experience and poking fun at himself for not being able to wrestle while CM Punk is “The Best In The World.” Cena also shared a picture of both, making sure to provide visual aid so that you know who is who.

Since that match, both men would go on to battle each other more in the future inside the ring before each moved on to win more titles and compete in high-profile WrestleMania matches. Punk has not wrestled in a WWE ring since the 2014 Royal Rumble but did resurface on WWE programming in the last few months by being a recurring guest on WWE Backstage. Cena last wrestled at WrestleMania 36, losing to Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Fun House match.
