A good PPV that I believe is forgotten in time as both ladder matches were good but are forgotten. The ladder matches were the matches of the night but both World Title matches were good but not great. The Swagger vs. Mysterio match was better than the Cage Match as the Cage Match was boring at points but Rey vs. Swagger told a good story. Kane vs. Rey was like almost every other cash in but at the time it was a huge surprise. The Divas Title match was much better than the women’s & the tag match were good with some nice spots & good fast action. The opening ladder match is the better of the 2 & the spot with Kofi hitting the boom drop on Drew was crazy.
