Triple Threat Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Title: Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger vs. Dolph Ziggler
Like its predecessor a year earlier, the 2010 card does a very good job of putting young, up-and-coming talent in key spots.
Wade Barrett, Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater were still very green but were part of the hottest angle in wrestling. Barrett, the leader of the invading rookies known as Nexus, had rapidly become a top star in WWE, and his feud with John Cena dominated the second half of 2010.
The Miz was fresh of his WWE Championship win the night after Survivor Series and a rematch against former champion Randy Orton made sense, though given Miz's TLC match against Jerry Lawler a few weeks earlier, it may have been better to use that gimmick match in this situation rather than the Kane-Edge-Mysterio-Del Rio match later.
The one match that instantly catches the eye, even more than the matches further up the card, is the triple threat ladder match for the Intercontinental title between Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston and Jack Swagger.
All three are immensely talented individuals and the thought of Ziggler and Kingston, both established ladder match competitors, throwing caution out of the window with big bumps and high spots while Swagger destroyed them both with his high-impact offense and spectacular mat wrestling ability, is intriguing.
Unfortunately, the 2010 suffers from a decided lack of star power.
As was the norm, Cena and Orton held down key spots on the card while Superstars such as the aforementioned Ziggler, Swagger, Kingston and former World Heavyweight champions such as Edge and Rey Mysterio were expected to bring workrate in the show's signature Tables, Ladders and Chairs match.
The integration of young, budding stars with established veterans works sometimes, but there were still questions about whether Barrett and Miz were ready for the positions they were put in, and there was great doubt as to whether John Morrison, who took on Sheamus in a No. 1 Contender's Ladder match, was ever going to mature into the star the company wanted him to be.
A solid card but one with one too many questions surrounding it.
