Tag Team Championship [Pre-Show Kickoff]: The Shield (c) vs. The Usos
So per usual, I wasn't able to watch this match, as I was doing the pre-show talk on Mega Powers Radio. However, from what I've heard, I didn't miss much.
WINNERS: Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns via pinfall.
Can't rate it until I see it.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match [World Heavyweight Championship Contract]: Dean Ambrose vs. Wade Barrett vs. Antonio Cesaro vs. Jack Swagger vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Damien Sandow vs. Fandango
The event starts with Ambrose and Fandango already in the ring. They must be REALLY concerned with time. Holy shit, what is up with Jack Swagger's face? He looks SO fucked up and out of it? Did he really just party backstage with RVD? Sandow steals the mic away from Rhodes...turn is definitely happening. "If Fandango wins, we riot" sign. Pretty even so far. Wade Barrett just took part of a ladder off and is hitting Sandow with it. Rhodes hits a Muscle Buster on Cesaro on top of the ladder. Samoa Rhodes. Swagger's up top and Barrett hits him with the Bullhammer. Fandango stops Wade from getting the case. Fandango pulls the Sunset Flip/Power Bomb from the ladder. Cesaro and Swagger hold the ladder while Ambrose skins the cat on top. Then, they toss him aside. Cesaro is now climbing on Swagger's shoulders to try to get the ladder. Cody Rhodes dropkicks Swagger to stop that. Cross Rhodes on Fandango and Barrett. Rhodes is busted open around his eye it seems. Rhodes tosses Ambrose away and is about to win, but Rollins and Reigns come in to interrupt. The Usos come in to attack The Shield. Ambrose is climbing again. Cody tilts the ladder and Ambrose falls on top of the two tag teams as well as Swagger and Cesaro. Sandow pushes Rhodes off! Sandow wins!!!
WINNER: Damien Sandow
Very good match! Even though I wanted Barrett to win and expected him to, I'm glad with Sandow.
Out comes Brad Maddox. He cuts a long promo about Vickie Guerrero. They rushed the entrances for this? Now we've got a tribute video to Vickie.
Intercontinental Championship: Curtis Axel (c) vs. The Miz
Miz pretends to have been hit by Paul Heyman, which causes the ref to get him thrown out of the ringside area! That was great! Now there's a "we want Heyman" chant going on, of course. Perfect Plex doesn't work. Miz locks in the Figure Four, which looks good. Axel switches the leverage. Miz flips it back to his way and Axel gets the ropes. Axel picks up the pinfall to retain.
WINNER: Curtis Axel via pinfall.
Not bad, but not particularly impressive, either. It served its purpose.
Divas Championship: AJ Lee (c) vs. Kaitlyn
Why does Kaitlyn need Layla here? Is she supposed to counterbalance Big E Langston? Kaitlyn dominates, hitting her with that gutbuster that she used to use as a finisher. AJ gets pushed off the top rope, but Langston catches her. Kaitlyn hits her spear, but is acting like her arm is hurt in the process. AJ kicks her in the face, then pulls the Black Widow out mid-hurricanrana. Kaitlyn taps out.
WINNER: AJ Lee via submission.
Not as good as their previous match, but still not too bad. This ppv is doing well so far as a potential Event of the Year nominee for the Best & Worst Awards.
Kofi Kingston and Big Show are on the panel with Josh Mathews and Vickie Guerrero. I kind of like how they do this now.
Chris Jericho vs. Ryback
RVD is about to interrupt and take back his singlet. LOL that was awkward as Ryback went up to the second rope, put his arms up, then just slowly fell forward onto Jericho. The illusion of Ryback as an unstoppable monster really doesn't stand up when you have someone like Jericho able to easily pick him up and slam him all over the place. Ryback hits the Meat Hook. Jericho goes for a Codebreaker and Ryback just slams him down after catching him. He follows it up with a power bomb and a two-count. Jericho hits a Codebreaker, but Ryback was on the ropes and falls backwards outside of the ring. Ryback beats the 10-count. Jericho hits a crossbody and gets a two-count. Ryback picks Jericho up to Shell Shock him but Jericho counters into a slightly botched DDT. Two-count. Jericho misses the Lionsault and Ryback rolls him up for the victory.
WINNER: Ryback via pinfall.
So Ryback was unstoppable, lost for an entire year straight, and wins his first match since then via a roll-up?
Performance Center looks awesome.
World Heavyweight Championship: Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler
Ten elbow drops from Ziggler, haha. Awesome. Crowd really wants Ziggler to win (as do I). Lots of people thought it would be the end with he hit the Fameasser. Del Rio hits a nice backbreaker on Ziggler. Nice dropkick from Ziggler onto Del Rio who was jumping off the ropes. AJ's music hits while we can see Del Rio and Ziggler talking to each other a lot. AJ's skipping around the ring for some reason. Ziggler tells her to leave. This should definitely be the end. Ziggler hits a DDT. Someone in the crowd yells at the top of his lungs "I LOVE YOU AJ" which the camera picks up a lot haha. Del Rio goes for the superkick and Ziggler blocks it. AJ runs in, hits Del Rio with the title and gets Ziggler disqualified.
WINNER: Alberto Del Rio via disqualification.
Told you Ziggler wasn't going to win.
Well, now that we're going with the WWE title match, that means RVD won't win the ladder match.
WWE Championship: John Cena (c) vs. Mark Henry
Big pop for Mark Henry! Good! Commence beat down of Cena which ends when Cena hits an AA after his second (or third) attempt and then wins. Hey, they gave Henry a kickout after the AA. Cena kicks out after the World's Strongest Slam. Crowd was going nuts hoping that Henry would win. Henry removes a turnbuckle padding and Cena uses it in a reversal to push Henry into. Cena locks in the STF but Henry gets to the ropes. Henry low-blows Cena, but the ref doesn't see it. Two-count. Cena escapes a WSS attempt and puts the STF on Henry again. He'll tap now. Yup, there he goes.
WINNER: John Cena via submission.
They didn't go exactly as expected with the AA win, but it's still disappointing.
All Stars Money in the Bank Ladder Match [WWE Championship Contract]: RVD vs. Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk vs. Christian vs. Sheamus vs. Randy Orton
RVD tried to jump and reach the briefcase before the entrances were even over with. RVD tries to do the hand taunt and they attack him right after the "Rob" part. Hilarious. I hope that's all he does in the match, haha. Totally not doing a move by move thing here, but as you should expect, lots of finishers and "guy climbs but someone else stops him". RVD hits the frog splash from the top of a ladder onto Christian, that's probably the big spot. He didn't do the normal thing, just more so did a normal one. Daniel Bryan clears house and is about to win, but Curtis Axel attacks him with a chair. Boooo. CM Punk hits the GTS on Axel. Heyman bitches to Axel that he wanted Punk to win. Punk climbs...Heyman hits him with the ladder. Orton pulls RVD off the ladder and gives him an RKO on the way down! Nice!
WINNER: Randy Orton
Hm...not sure what they're going to do here...but I'm intrigued.
