While the event could never come close to the magic that was last year's Money in the Bank, this was a very good event.

The upper deck on the hard camera and far end-zone were tarped off as well as some rows in the lower deck on the hard camera side (I'd say 3 rows).

The crowd was pretty strong all night. I did find it interesting that they had the giant disco ball & never used it. I was there for WrestleMania in Arizona two years ago & while there was a Money in the Bank match on it, I was a good distance from the ring, which caused me not grasp the scope of the match.

I was now maybe 75 feet from the ring and had a clear look at just how dangerous the ladder match is. I now have a deeper respect for any ladder match that I've seen in person and all the guys here need to be commended for fighting through the risk involved.

The biggest pop of the night was easily when they announced the Royal Rumble was coming in six months. After that, I would say that CM Punk was the most over in the crowd, but there was also a strong group there for Daniel Bryan.

Chris Jericho was also really over with tons of Y2J chants when he was on the tron.

Overall, a much better show then Cyber Sunday here fouryears ago and can't wait til the Rumble in January. Again, I feel for all 13 guys who were in the Money in the Banks as seeing it on TV doesn't do the danger justice.
