Ok before we start I’ll admit it: I LOVE Money In The Bank. I love the matches, the concept, the whole ‘carrying a briefcase around for 11 months’; ALL of it. So when they decided to make a whole pay per view based around one of my favourite ever matches I was.. a little skeptical! It normally goes that the WWE have an awesome concept and then do it to death until it’s no longer a ‘huge’ event (Re-Elimination Chamber!) so when they announced this Money In The Bank PPV I shuddered to think what kind of car-crash TV this could turn out to be! I was plesently surprised!

The Smackdown MITB match kicked off the show and it was great! 25+ minutes may seem a bit of a stretch for any match but not for the Money In The Bank! I love that Christian was getting biggest pop out of them all and I almost ‘went home’ happy. ALMOST! Weird but awesome way to start the pay per view and it certainly fired up the crowd in the arena for the rest of the show!

Then they sent out the Divas. Why? Talk about falling flat on your ar*e!

The Uso’s once again faced the Hart Dynasty. Maybe it’s this era’s ‘ADHD’ culture but they can’t drag feuds on for months like they used to. I was already wondering when the next Money In The Bank match was coming on and drifted off thinking about the first one while this match was on!

Jack Swagger had to face Rey Mysterio next and why any of them are still facing Rey Mysterio is beyond me. Ok so I get the whole ‘kiddie culture’ but please! Rey hasn’t freshened up his moves since he joined the company! Everytime he’s in a match it’s predicatble and so are the audience reactions. I just don’t get ‘it’!

Layla and Kelly Kelly get into the ring and do a little hair pulling and girly slapping. Layla’s character is awesome Kelly is still waiting for one.

The RAW Money In The Bank match blew my bloody socks off! Edge vs Orton Vs Cena Vs Jericho Vs Miz Vs John Morrison Vs Ted DiBiase.. and then they stuck in Evan Bourne and Mark Henry to make up the numbers! Admittedly there wasn’t too many ‘OMG’ moments but most of these guys have done OMG their whole carreer so I guess it’s winding down time! It didn’t make the match any less thrilling or any less entertaining and the outcome was totally unexpected and very very welcome!

And as if THAT wasn’t enough to end the pay per view on, they then threw in the championship CAGE match between Cena and Sheamus! Do they spoil us or what?!

On the whole this Pay Per View was probably better than 90% of the 2010 offerings thus far. I loved it! Buy it!
