A video package on the World Title match was shown.
World Champion Rey Mysterio vs. Jack Swagger.
Rey was limping during his entrance. At the bell, Swagger backed Mysterio into a corner, but Mysterio kicked away. Mysterio tried to slide under Swagger's legs, but couldn't and Swagger grabbed his ankle. Rey kicked him away, and tried for a 619, but Swagger got out of position. Rey went for a quebrada moonsault, but Swagger caught him. Rey floated out and hit Swagger with some kicks. Swagger missed a charge and went to the floor and Rey jumped off the top rope into senton on Swagger on the floor. Rey hit a kick on the floor, then tossed Swagger back in. Rey went to climb the ropes, but Swagger met him there with a belly to belly suplex off the middle rope.
Swagger stomped Mysterio's ankle, and Rey rolled to the floor. Swagger went after him and rammed him into the announce table. Swagger stood on Mysterio's ankle. Swagger tossed Rey into the ring for a two count, then applied a kneebar. Rey kicked out of it, and tried to rally, but Swagger hit a sloppy powerslam for a two count. Swagger hit a big hip toss, then went for a reverse splash off the middle rope, but Rey moved out of the way. Rey hit a kick to the head, then went to the top rope. Rey hit a senton, but Swagger shoved Rey into a corner. Rey used a headscissors to sent Swagger head first into a turnbuckle, then hit a split legged moonsault for a two count.
Rey went for a bodyscissors, but Swagger turned it into a wheelbarrow suplex for a two count. Rey went for a tilt-a-whirl, but Swagger turned it into a gutwrench powerbomb. Rey got his foot on the bottom rope to break up the pin. Swagger went for the ankle, but Mysterio kicked it away. Mysterio got on Swagger's shoulders, then went into a rana, sending Swagger shoulder first into the ringpost. Rey went to the rope, but Swagger hit him with right hands. Swagger went for a second rope powerslam, but Rey swung around him and hit a DDT from the second rope for a near fall. Rey hit a 619, then went for a springboard rana, but Swagger caught it and put Rey in an ankle lock. Rey got to the ropes to break it, but Swagger then hit two reverse splashes off the middle rope.
Swagger stomped Rey's ankle repeatedly, then went for the ankle lock, as Rey was loosening his boot. Swagger got the hold locked in, Rey's boot came off, and Swagger fell into the ropes. Swagger tuned around and Mysterio grabbed Swagger with a rana and a cradle for the win at the 12 minute mark. Comparisons were made to Eddie Guerrero, who used the boot trick to beat Kurt Angle at Wrestlemania 20.
Winner: Rey Mysterio.
Post-match, Swagger attacked Mysterio and put him in the ankle lock. Kane came out and attacked Swagger, battering him and running him into the back. Mysterio was then celebrating with the belt, when Kane's music hit and he came back out, this time with the Money In The Bank briefcase. Rey shook his head "no" but Kane gave the briefcase to the referee.
World Champion Rey Mysterio vs. Kane.
Kane grabbed Rey and slammed him to the mat by his injured ankle. Kane picked up Rey off the mat and hit a chokeslam. Kane scooped up Rey and hit a tombstone for the pin in under a minute.
Winner and new World Champion: Kane.
It was noted that this was the first time a Money In The Bank contract was cashed in on the same night it was won in a MITB match. They also noted it was the second time Kane has held a World Title.
Backstage, Edge was watching the monitor, and Chris Jericho approached him. Edge bragged about his Money In The Bank success, while Jericho reminded Edge that he was the man who created the MITB match. They went back and forth about who was more desperate to win the MITB and go on to get the title.
Women's Champion Layla vs. Kelly Kelly.
Kelly was accompanied by Tiffany, while Michelle McCool came out with Layla. Kelly charged Layla at the bell, the referee separated them, then Kelly charged and hit a Thesz Press. Kelly hit some slaps, then rammed Layla in a corner. Kelly missed a handspring elbow, but kicked Layla and grabbed a Victory Roll for a two count. Kelly kicked Layla from the ring. Layla tripped Kelly in the apron, trapping her leg and kicking at it. Layla put Kelly back in the ring and got a two count. Layla stretched Kelly's leg across the bottom rope. Layla kicked Kelly to the floor and she collided with McCool. Layla threw Kelly into the security wall. Tiffany came around, but the referee held her back. This allowed McCool to get a kick in, then she sat on the security wall and commented that she hadn't done anything. Kelly sprung up and shoved Michelle off the wall and into the crown. Kelly got in the ring and went nuts on Layla, getting a two count with a sunset flip. Kelly hit the K2 Rocker Dropper, but Layla got her foot on the bottom rope, although I think McCool was supposed to put it there. Kelly went to the floor and she and Tiffany gave McCool a double shoulder block. Kelly got back in the ring and went for a sunset flip, but Layla blocked it and leaned forward to get the pin at the four minute mark.
