First, I thoroughly enjoyed the Money in the Bank PPV. The final match with Cena winning the MITB contract was outstanding. I believe he and Jericho stole the show. I’m still shaking my head over Cena putting Big Show through the announce table. My only real disappointment of the night was the AJ/Punk/Bryan triangle. Don’t get me wrong, the match itself was brutally exciting, but the lead up with AJ’s part being so good, I thought the ending to that match was disappointing.
I also wanted to mention that live blogging is much more difficult than what it sounds. As a fan, I wanted to be glued to every second. But we wanted to provide our viewers an up-to-date account of the event. I hope you enjoyed it, and even though we will not be doing it all the time, the plan is to do so on special occasions, which will be announced in advance.
With that said, expect us to have tons of coverage of the RAW 1000 event on Monday. Trevor and I are still finalizing how we will cover this, but I believe it will be a very special night for WWE fans old and new.
My apologies for not getting a more detailed update of MITB as I had planned, as well as not doing my normal RAW Recap. Those few days away from the computer were a killer for me and staying current.
I need to check how Trevor and I did on our predictions for MITB.
WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS R-TRUTH & KOFI KINGSTON VS. HUNICO & CAMACHO
Trevor and I both predicted that R-Truth and Kofi would win.
MONEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH FOR A WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP CONTRACT
I predicted Tyson Kidd, Trevor couldn’t decide between Kidd and Sin Cara. Both of us were wrong as Dolph Ziggler walked out with the briefcase.
MONEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH FOR A WWE CHAMPIONSHIP CONTRACT
Ed’s Prediction: Crank up “Break The Walls Down” cause it’s gonna be Chris Jericho.Trevor’s Response: Not to sure on this one but I’ll go with John Cena.
Way to go Trevor, and John Cena. As I said earlier I think Cena and Jericho stole the show and I’m very happy for Cena.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION SHEAMUS VS. ALBERTO DEL RIO
Trevor and I both correctly picked Sheamus.
WWE CHAMPION CM PUNK VS. DANIEL BRYAN
I predicted that AJ would turn heel and help Bryan defeat Punk. Trevor couldn’t decide who would win the match but had this to say about AJ: “All eyes will be on AJ she wins either way.”
I was for sure wrong on my prediction and I will leave it up to everyone reading this to decide how to take Trevor’s comment. AND is it just me or does Trevor kinda have a thing for AJ? But wait, what man in his right mind wouldn’t – so never mind.
Finally, I am really looking forward to RAW 1000. We had hoped to break the news that we would be covering the event live in St. Louis. That didn’t happen, but don’t forget 8 pm eastern with DX leading off the show. ARE YOU READY?
