I honestly,i knew being MONEY IN THE BANK this was likely to be a really good show,but this is just amazing,with just a few not so good moments.
To start off this fine event we have the SMACKDOWN MONEY IN THE BANK match (KANE,SIN CARA,SHEAMUS,DANIAL BRYAN,CODY RHODES,HEATH SLATER,WADE BARRETT,JUSTIN GABRIEL) and this is just chaotic fun from the get go. Loads of highspots and near grabs of the hanging case for M.I.B.,just what a match of this ilk should be and it lasts for a decent time too,loved it.
Okay a bit of a downer now with KELLY KELLY taking on BRIE BELLA for the divas title,it's what you'd expect,nothing special,moving on.
BIGSHOW vs MARK HENRY,this comes after the attack from the last event (CAPITOL PUNISHMENT 2011) and it is good in that it shows a new vicious MARK HENRY,but it isn't anything to go on about,so i won't.
Next,the RAW MONEY IN THE BANK match (KOFI KINGSTON,EVAN BOURNE,MIZ,ALEX RILEY,ALBERTO DEL RIO,R-TRUTH,REY MYSTERIO,JACK SWAGGER)and again it's a highly enjoyable match as you'd expect. It gets off to a fun start with each superstar on entrance,grabbing a ladder to use as a weapon,the bell rings and the pain starts. Again loads of highspots and even though it doesn't last as long as the SD match and it's not quite as good,it's still very very enjoyable.
Next RANDY ORTON takes on a determined CHRISTIAN for the world heavyweight title,but this time CHRISTIAN can win the title on a DQ,with this in mind,CHRISTIAN does all he can to make ORTON crack. It's quite short but still enjoyable.
And so,here we have the main event,things can't get any better than the 2 M.I.B. matches right? wrong!
Granted,this match had a lot of build up with the news that C.M. PUNK is leaving the WWE after this WWE title encounter with JOHN CENA,making it known that he planned on taking the title with him,then VINCE McMAHON telling CENA he better win or he's fired,but i didn't quite expect this. It's a brillaintly wrestled match with weardown holds,new moves,aggression,near pinfalls aplenty and the kind of mindblowing factor we haven't really seen much of from WWE in some time. It lasts a really decent amount of time and yes it's got some annoying stuff,like McMAHON showing his face and that,but then that kind of adds to the story behind the match. It really doesn't matter if you're bored with CENA in the main event,he's on top form here,really impressive,then of course there's C.M. PUNK with a sudden popularity surge,he's really giving it his all,like this is the match he's been waiting years for,what a wrestler!
A truely fantastic main event from a show that will probably go down in history as one of the best ever WWE events.
Even if you don't normally go for WWE,please try this one,i'll be shocked if you don't enjoy,just forgive the lesser matches and lap up the rest,top stuff!
