Harrak’s Quick Quips: WWE Money In The Bank 2012

– “#MITB” is already trending? I think Twitter is messing with me.

– I feel like doing some predictions tonight since Money In The Bank? has become pretty unpredictable over the last few years.

YouTube Pre-Show
R-Truth & Kofi Kingston vs. Hunico & Camacho = R-Truth & Kofi Kingston

World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank Match
Tensai vs. Tyson Kidd vs. Sin Cara vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Christian vs. Santino Marella vs. Damian Sandow = Cody Rhodes

WWE Championship Money in the Bank Match
John Cena vs. The Big Show vs. Kane vs. Chris Jericho = John Cena

World Heavyweight Championship
Sheamus (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio = Sheamus

WWE Championship – No DQ (Special Guest Referee: AJ)
CM Punk (c) vs. Daniel Bryan = Toughest call by far… CM Punk retains

– Time for the Free For All!!!

– I’m actually a little surprised we’re not seeing Ryback in a Money In The Bank ladder match tonight.

– That was a longer match than I expected but still not a fan of either of these teams.

– God, I miss Edge.

– Having HUGE problems with my Dish Network feed so I apologize if I miss much.

– I’m surprised (and glad) they keep putting over how big of a deal this match is for Tyson Kidd.

– I get why Christian wants to use Edge’s spear as a tribute to his best friend. But it looks awful. Hell, Edge’s spear never looked particularly painful either.

– How many damn times can Sin Cara be powerbombed through a ladder!?!

– It was a complete toss up to choose between Dolph Ziggler and Cody Rhodes. Congrats to Ziggler though who’s having a helluva 2012!

– Well now that was an unexpected babyface pop for The Miz!

– Good call to add to the WWE ladder match. The guys in the match just are stale & Miz definitely freshens it up!

– There really is nothing about Del Rio that impresses me. Especially with the news that he won’t be around long.

– I wonder if WWE actually realizes that they are trying to one up TNA’s PPV Destination X? Probably the first time in history and honestly, I don’t know if they can do it.

– Well that was a rather unspectacular clean win for Sheamus.

– God, how many times have they done the “bell hasn’t rung yet” gimmick for the Money In The Bank contracts?! Too predictable for it’s own good now.

– Well I guess there had to be one match where everyone could hit the head.

– Always good to have racist comments and dance offs during a match no one cares about.

– Hopefully AW’s mic just short circuited.

– The WWE title match BETTER not be up next.

– Son of a bitch. The angle that has been opening AND closing both Raw and SmackDown is not going on last at the PPV. Horrible!

– Digging Byan’s new tights and coat. Very Dean Ambrose/Jon Moxley though.

– Another reason why this match should be on last – no mystery on if the winner of the WWE title Money In The Bank ladder match will cash in tonight.

– Awesome version of the “Yes” Lock with the kendo stick.

– Thought AJ was going to lay across the table to stop the suplex for a second.

– I like the fact that this story is continuing. The No DQ stipulation seemed rushed but I think they have something else planned for Punk at SummerSlam.

– The Ryback squash seriously has to follow THAT?!

– Despite Punk/Bryan/AJ, TNA’s Destination X has been a better PPV with a MUCH smaller payroll.

– I really intensely dislike Ryback’s finisher. Almost Attitude Adjustment dislike.

– What the hell is going on?! Now there’s a Divas match coming AFTER both World title matches?!

– Why did we need that match? I feel like this PPV has gone completely off the rails.

– Last year, Daniel Bryan won a briefcase & CM Punk “left” the WWE with the WWE title, beating John Cena and avoiding a Vince McMahon screwjob. Tonight we’ve gotten 3 filler matches & NOTHING has felt special.

– I’m surprised we haven’t had a 15 min Hornswoggle, Brodus Clay, Zack Ryder comedy segment.

– Big Show drags out a giant ladder. Crowd is completely indifferent.

– And to the surprise of absolutely no one, John Cena wins the Money In The Bank match. A truly horrible PPV.

{After reading a lot of feedback on the show, I feel like I was watching a different PPV. Have we become so complacent as WWE fans that when one deserving star wins (Ziggler) & one match “kinda” lives up to expectations (Punk/Bryan), it’s considered a good PPV? Maybe it is just me.}
