Winner and NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion- John Cena ***1/2 (Good ladder match but it doesnít come close to matching the Money in the Bank one earlier in the night. They moved lot slower in this match and it was a struggle to set up some of the ladder spots during the course of the match. The finish was predicable but considering the circumstances with Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar projected to main event Summerslam, Cena was the right choice to win.)
The 411: As an overall show, this isn't up to the level of other PPVs from earlier this year. However, there are still some matches and moments that make this show worthwhile. The Money in the Bank Ladder Match is outstanding and the Rollins/Ambrose feud is one to watch for the rest of the summer. The Tag Title Match and the WWE World Heavyweight Title Match are also very good and while Cena winning set off anger from fans, it really was the only choice they had in regards to future plans. The rest of the show is skippable stuff but take the time to check out the main three matches if you have the chance.
