Despite putting on an a good match with CM Punk and giving the Chicago native everything he had, it was a slip by Vince McMahon that would give CM Punk the opportunity he needed to beat the WWE Champion.
CM Punk’s victory means that John Cena is fired, but anyone who has been a fan of the WWE for more than a year knows that John Cena isn’t going anywhere. Anyone else looking forward to seeing Juan Cena at house shows?
After spitting in Randy Orton’s face, Christian was on the receiving end of a low blow, which by the rules of the contract Christian’s lawyers drew up, gave Christian his second World Heavyweight Championship.
There would be no time to celebrate though, as Christian was savagely beaten by the Viper after the match. Look for the feud between Christian and Randy Orton to continue until SummerSlam, where it will hopefully come to an end.
Last week, the Viper reminded us he had trouble controlling his anger, and at Money in the Bank we saw the consequences of this for both Randy Orton and Christian.
Their increasingly stale feud will likely continue into SummerSlam, where either Randy Orton will turn heel or some new blood will be injected into the World Heavyweight Championship picture. Maybe the Viper can find his next prey in the American Dragon?
Raw Money in the Bank Participants
While the Raw Money in the Bank match had a nice finish with Alberto Del Rio demasking Rey Mysterio to take the briefcase, the rest of the match was average aside from the expected high spots.
Alberto Del Rio should get a nice push out of winning the Money in the Bank match, but the rest of the competitors will be relegated to the mid-card for the time being, with no real standouts in what will be a forgettable Money in the Bank match.
The Big Show
After being stretchered out and feigning injury for the second time in a short while, it remains to be seen whether Big Show will remain in action or take an extended break as was reported after he was run down by Ricardo Rodriguez.
