All Rise...

Judge David Johnson has money in the bank. Forty-five bucks to be specific.

Editor's Note

Our review of WWE: Money In The Bank 2011, published September 1st, 2011, is also available.

The Charge

Fun with ladders.

The Case

One of the newer additions to the WWE pay-per-view stable, Money in the Bank took a popular segment and expanded it into its own, full-length special. The Raw and Smackdown brands (if those words mean nothing to you then you could probably move onto the next DVD review) each put forward eight of their Superstars, all of whom are tossed into the ring along with a bunch of ladders. Their goal? To climb a ladder and grab the briefcase that's suspended from the ceiling. Their prize? A title shot.

So all that happens and there's lots of wrestling and near-misses and special moves and oohing and aahing from the crowd and a victor for each brand eventually emerges. Tucked in among these two events are the following matches:

• Women's Championship
Layla vs. Kelly Kelly

• Divas Championship
Alicia Fox vs. Eve

• Unified Tag Team Championship
Hart Dynasty vs. Jimmy and Jey Uso

• World Championship
Rey Mysterio vs. Jack Swagger

• Steel Cage Match for WWE Championship
Sheamus vs. John Cena

The Money in the Bank segments are the centerpieces for good reason: as far as partially scripted pugilistic mayhem is concerned, they deliver in a big way. The ladder shenanigans are legion and pretty much every superstar gets to pull off one of his special moves. Toss in the requisite twists and turn-arounds and you've got the formula for some grade-A WWE chop-socky.

The DVD: full frame, 2.0 stereo, a backstage interview with Kane and an address from The Nexus.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. What am I supposed to say? You want suplexes, you got them.
