Overall Thoughts – The show kicked off the as expected with the SmackDown MITB Ladder Match and I gotta say I was disappointed. This is was really sloppy and it just didn’t have that many big spots we’re used to seeing. This is one of my least favorite MITB but it was still very good. There was definitely some good stuff in this match and it was fun, but I don’t think it was as good as previous MITB’s. I don’t really agreeing with Ziggler winning too because it proves he can’t get it done the clean way and has to most likely resort into a quick cash in. ADR/Sheamus was a little slow and dull but it was still pretty good. They did a few nice spots here and there but it was mostly a technical match. The finish pretty much came out of nowhere and I was expecting more. PTP/Colons was very fun; not only was the match competitive but when you have Abraham Washington at ringside it honestly makes it 10 times better. This was probably these guys’ best match together because they had a chance to work. I really like this storyline as well, best Tag Team storyline WWE has had in a few years forsure. Punk/Bryan was MOTN; a totally different style then Over the Limit and it was still up there with that match. There was definitely some technical wrestling in there but a lot of hard hitting spots as well. The storytelling in this was also really well done. I wasn’t bored with it at all but I feel AJ was a distraction. I’m glad that she didn’t ruin the match’s outcome but I felt the belt should have changed hands here, regardless, great match. The Ryback & Diva’s matches were really unnecessary; I don’t get what’s so hard about announcing some matches before hand. The WWE Championship MITB Ladder Match was probably the worst of all time, it was good but it just wasn’t there for me. Most of these guys just didn’t belong in a match like this since there wasn’t much for them to do spot wise. The outcome was way too predictable, everybody saw this coming. The PPV was good but really disappointing, probably the worst one they’ve done and definitely the 2 worst MITB Ladder Matches they have produced.
