Any surprises there?  For starters, there's a match rom each of the television shows, sans Superstars.  The WWE may want to consider the caliber of matches given to fans on this show.  The list is also heavy on Pay-Per-View matches as one might expect, but seems just about right.  Some may flip-flop the top two matches based on personal preference, but for those that saw these bouts, they were certainly two of the better ones overall in terms of near finishes and crowd participation/hype.

What will 2012 bring?  WWE fans will expecting more epic encounters including the upcoming 2012 Royal Rumble, and The Rock vs. John Cena at Wrestlemania 28!
