Winner: Curtis Axel
[adinserter name=”366 right”]1 Thing I Liked: The continued push of The Real Americans, actually just Antonio Cesaro. I am a huge fan of Cesaro and could definitely see him as a World Heavyweight Champion. He was my pick to win the World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank Ladder Match. I really want to see him break away from Jack Swagger soon. I could see a face turn in his future and he could go on to feud with Damien Sandow after he cashes in to win the World Heavyweight title. This could be a great feud and I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re talking about these two in the title picture around this time next year.
1 Thing I Hated: How many times do I have to see Sin Cara job to Curtis Axel? I am not a Sin Cara fan but I am tired of this match! How many times have they faced already!! They have to give Axel a Intercontinental feud or have him drop the title. I don’t want to see him lose the title but right now what’s the purpose of him holding the title.
Match of the Night: The Shield vs. Mark Henry and the Uso’s
