The John Cena look alike in the crowd tripped me out all night. Any way this was a great event with some great matches.
1.[SMACKDOWN MITB]SHEAMUS VS CODY RHODES VS WADE BARRETT VS SIN CARA VS JUSTIN GABRIEL VS HEATH SLATER VS DANIEL BRYAN VS KANE-we started the night out with an excellent match that would see some stars from Smackdown going all out. I loved this match and thought for sure my boy Barrett was going to win it. I would have to say that Sin Cara was the show stealer here, dishing out and taking punishment. Kinda like Shelton Benjamin was in the early matches. This was an excellent opening match that really put all involved over, they all looked good. Bryan eventually gets the win in a great opener.
2.[DIVA'S TITLE]KELLY KELLY VS BRIE BELLA-this was a decent Diva's match with some good moments. I honestly though don't really get into the Diva's matches unless Natie or Beth is involved. I usually go to TNA for my female wrestling. Still this was a good match with Kelly coming out on top.
3.MARK HENRY VS BIG SHOW-the story line that would lead to the story line that would finally see Mark Henry get the World Title [finally]. This was a good match of monsters, usually a big man match fails to deliver much. This time though these guys did a good job delivering the action. Although Show had moments this match was all about Mark injuring Show's leg and getting over. Henry gets the win and then still attacks the leg, good stuff.
4.[RAW MITB]ALBERTO DEL RIO VS REY MYSTERIO VS EVAN BOURNE VS R-TRUTH VS JACK SWAGGER VS KOFI KINGSTON VS THE MIZ VS ALEX RILEY-ah yes one of the matches I was most looking forward to at the time. This match is just full of awesome, and yes that includes The Miz. Miz by the way is who I wanted to win this but I was also looking at Truth or Del Rio is Miz failed. Like the last MITB match this was full of high spots and action. And for any Miz haters out there he is actually the most memorable person in this match in my opinion. No I am not saying he crushed everybody but what happened to him and what he did was truly awesome. After taking a bad fall he had to be helped to the back with a leg injury. He later would come back to the match and almost win it, he even gets a loud ovation from the fans for doing so. Any way not sure which MITB match I like more but this was also great. Del Rio takes the win as I ma sure you all know now.
5.[WORLD TITLE]RANDY ORTON VS CHRISTIAN-I absolutely loved how this match ended for sure, I wanted Christian to win the title so bad. The story here was if Randy got DQ'd he would lose the title. So the match starts and there is some great back and forth action. These two really work well together that is for sure, and Christian's whole one more match thing was starting to pick up. So at the end Christian spits in Randy's mouth so Orton kicks him in his, well he loses the title. Afterwards Randy beats Christian down but I loved that Christian was the champ.
6.[WWE TITLE]JOHN CENA VS CM PUNK-this match here is what every one who is into wrestling was talking about. Punk gave the industry a storyline that finally felt oh so real when played out. Was it you may ask, you should have been paying attention. In Punk's hometown of Chicago I knew Cena was going to get booed like crazy. This is very much a classic match, and yes you read that right. Cena vs. Punk is no doubt a classic. The action is back and forth and is an actual wrestling match with a story being told and great ring psychology. Both guys really bring it here and the match was pulled of nicely, even with the screw job [done many times now] thing at the end. Like how Cena stopped it but love how he went to sleep. Punk of course wins the title and leaves the WWE with the title and not signed, loved it.
This was a great event and I liked every match but loved some more than others. I highly recommend this event to even casual fans, buy it now. For the special feature you get the great Matt Striker interviewing Daniel Bryan.
I still have a hard time believing it possible. It's difficult to fathom this actually took place. WWE focused almost completely on the wrestling aspect of their product, and what little bit of the entertainment they delivered is actually something to talk about. Money in the Bank 2011 is their best event in about 5 years or so. I believe it's their best since Unforgiven 2006. It could have been much better though if only one match was left off the event, but still, this is going to … more
I absolutely loved this event and really liked every match, the whole thing was really good. The MITB matches were really well done and some of the best the WWE has had. Of course the Christian is my boy so that worked out. Of course the Main Event was excellent as both men were at the top of their games, excellent match. I highly recommend this event.
I basically am just a normal person obbsessed with Mixed Martial Arts, pro wrestling, movies of all kinds, music of all kinds, books of all kinds, and of course foods of all kinds. Just trying to keep … more
