From Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois
In a dark match Santino Marella and Vladmir Kozlov defeated David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty when Santino pinned Otunga in a non-title match.
SmackDown MITB Ladder match:
Kane, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Daniel Bryan, Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater will compete for a chance to face the World Heavyweight Champion.
In the shocker of the night, Daniel Bryan wins the SmackDown MITB match by using several elbow shots to the head of Wade Barrett on the top of the ladder and then kicking him off and then grabbing the briefcase.
Sin Cara was taken off in a stretcher during the match. For the record I picked Wade Barrett. This match was fantastic.
Diva Champion Kelly Kelly retains her title as she hits the Kelly Kick and follows it up with the pin.
This wasn’t a bad match. Just a filler until the next match. I did pick Kelly Kelly.
So far 1-1.
Mark Henry defeats The Big Show. Mark uses the World’s Strongest Slam, then goes up the ropes for a splash on the Big Show for the pin. After the match Henry continues to beat up The Show using a chair on The Big Show’s ankle.
Oh yeah, I picked Henry. I’m 2-1.
Raw MITB Ladder Match:
Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, Alex Riley, Evan Bourne, Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, R-Truth and Jack Swagger will compete for the chance to face the World Champion.
Alberto Del Rio wins as he and Rey Mysterio are on the ladder, Del Rio takes off Rey’s mask, and both fall off the ladder, Alberto throws Ray’s mask away, then climbs the ladder and get’s the briefcase.
I picked R-Truth so I am 2-2
World Heavyweight Title match:
Christian is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champ as he spits in the face of Randy Orton. This, obviously pisses Orton off and he low-blow’s Christian causing the referee to disqualify Orton and giving the win and the title to Christian.
After the match Orton continues to beat up on Christian.
I picked Christian now am at 3-2.
WWE Championship Match:
CM Punk is the new WWE Champion by defeating Cena, in perhaps John’s greatest match ever. This was a very, very CM Punk crowd as its in his home town of Chicago. The ending happens when Vince McMahon and John Laurinaitis come to the ring as Punk is putting Cena back into the ring, Punk is distracted while Cena locks in the STF, Vince asks the timekeeper to ring the bell but Cena breaks the hold and hits Laurinaitis, then John tells McMahon “not that way.” Cena gets in the ring and Punk hit’s the Go To Sleep and pins Cena for the title.
Cena had at least 5 wrestling moves, 2 of them he never used before.
I got this one right so I’m 4-2, but I also thought that R-Truth would turn in the MITB to pin Punk, but that didn’t happen.
This was one of the better WWE PPV in a while.
