Hell in a Cell was filled with memorable moments that are bound to be controversial amongst fans, but what about the action itself?

Several of the matches met expectations, but one match stood out as the most entertaining: Miz vs. Kofi Kingston.

These two young superstars showed why they are part of the cream of the crop in WWE with a match that was filled with everything a wrestling fan could want.

Both superstars came close to winning several times, and both men managed to escape each other's finisher on several occasions.

In the end, it was Kofi who got the win and made his winning streak over Miz extend to three straight bouts.

The match began with Miz using the big balloons for his entrance that he first used against John Cena at WrestleMania.

The match started with both men trading quick offense and both nearly hitting their finisher within the first minute of the match.

The standout performance in this match has to go to Miz. He managed to keep up with one of the quicker superstars in WWE throughout the entire match.

Miz used several tactics and moves I have not seen him utilize very often, including removing Kofi's knee pad and boot to punish his leg with a half Boston crab.

Several times throughout the contest we saw Miz show his aggressive side, but it was the aggression Kofi showed that surprised many watching.

After the match, Kofi actually thanked Miz for bringing the wildcat out in him again, and if this is what Kofi is going to be like from now on, I will thank Miz too.

This short feud has given everyone the realization that Kofi is a future main event star who can put on great matches consistently.

Each time Kofi and Miz have fought in the past couple weeks, they have stolen the show, and that kind of chemistry is not easy to come by.

People like to talk about guys like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler when it comes to always putting on a good show. They soon may be adding names like Kofi and Miz to that list.

The only match that had even come close to the excitement of Kofi vs. Miz was Sheamus vs.Big Show. The main event of Punk vs. Ryback had an ending that forces it out of the running for match of the night.

Sunday's PPV may have mixed reactions from fans as a whole, but I challenge one wrestling fan not to like the IC title match we witnessed.

What match do you think stole the show at Hell in a Cell?
