World Heavyweight Championship - Last Man Standing
Big Show (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
Kinda had high(ish) expectations after reading all the positive reviews on this, but ended up a little disappointed. Let me start by saying I love how they didn't bullshit around inside the ring for the first few minutes like you tend to see in every other LMS match. Totally dug how Show just went straight for a table and slammed him through with no problem. Del Rio's offense was pretty limited against the big guy but his psychology on the arm was good. Thought the armbar spot on the apron was creative, even though the crowd didn't seem to care. Del Rio's "standing up" after the KO punch was probably the best part of the match for me, thought that was really clever. I don't have a problem with the finish, though that was clever too but I don't feel like Del Rio really got all that much significant offense in, plus the match felt a little short. Crowd didn't help it much either, only popping for the finish. Good SD main event to nothing to write home about imo.
