Originally reviewed here.
The hype video for this match was hysterical. It’s hard to believe anyone wrote this story with anything but comedic attentions.
Kane was running through Edge for a while. Edge eventually hit a spear on the floor, and that gave him control. Kane made a comeback because it was time for the comeback. Holy shit, SNITSKY, ran in. I forgot about him and that feud. Kane gave him the boot. Lita went into the ring with a chair. She dropped it and started feeling Kane up. Kane didn’t fall for it, and he goozled her. Snitksy then kicked Kane in the face to get Edge a nearfall. Edge accidentally hit Snitsky with the MITB briefcase. Kane then hit Edge with the chokeslam: 1…2…3
This match succeeded in managing to make fans care, and I have to give it credit for that. Kane and Edge also worked very hard and worked within their limitations. It was a very strange match though with Kane overcoming ALL the odds to pin the Money in the Bank winner clean. It’s even more maddening to know that Kane was being put over the wrong people a DECADE ago. For fucks sake.
Match Rating: **1/2
