LAST MAN STANDING for the World Heavyweight Championship: The Big Show (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
Had no idea Del Rio turned face. How and why it happened, lol? I guess it was not long time ago, because he didn't get big reactions and pops in this match. Anyway, this was really good, the best LMS in WWE since Cena/Edge. I appreciated pacing and structure the most. Can't believe there are still people who connect physical properties with storytelling abilities, because the Big Show has always been one of the most underappreciated ring generals out there. Given normal and no-bullshit circumstances, he can go. He was the star of the match by setting his own pace, and he was great in doing so. Del Rio was good, he did the basic babyface stuff. The ending was very fine.

LAST MAN STANDING for the WWE Championship: John Cena (c) vs. Umaga
Holy teenage daughter of MOSES! Watched this match only once, back in 2008, but I was heavily drunk and high, therefore I was remembering this only vaguely. Now, 5 years later, this felt...beautiful. Amazing LMS. Once again, a monster heel made a LMS match. Damn, Umaga was brilliant here. Fantastic performance. He was destroying Cena and lurking around like a predator. What the fuck happened to his push? Too bad he'll only be remembered as just another Randomer to Cena's "Superman's Chronicles" collection. Cena was great too. Gotta give some credit, where credit is due. This was not just another heroic babyface performance, this was where he stepped the fuck up, and gave us the serious Match of the Decade contender, as far as WWE goes. Excellent match, with great and brutal spots, and captivating storytelling.
