No Way Out is a B-level pay-per-view.
Looking back, it was the mid-carders who really thrived and stole the show. You can make an argument that that is how it's supposed to be.
David Otunga received more than 45 seconds of beat down. In the pre-match, he actually got to show something.
Dolph Ziggler put forth tons of effort—which won over hundreds more fans—in a losing battle.
Christian and Cody Rhodes gave fans a quality match.
The Prime Time Players were thrust into the spotlight. The teams of the Usos, Epico and Primo and Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel showcased talent along the way.
Even in the end, Kofi Kingston, Brodus Clay, Alex Riley and Zack Ryder are a large part of why John Cena—face of the WWE—was able to win. Without them, Cena loses.
In essence, No Way Out did its job perfectly.
The champions retained and lesser talent took advantage of the opportunity to shine.
