Tonight I shall bring you the match write-ups very differently, considering that I’m taking care of someone very dear to me and making sure she’s okay. Other than that, let’s get down to what happened between all the hard hitting action at 💵 Money in the Bank 💼, shall we?
The Kick-off show brought us the SmackDown Tag Team Championship match: The Bludgeon Brothers vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.
A brutal Tag Team clash, but perhaps not the most brutal I’ve ever seen in my life.
The Bludgeon Brothers retained their Tag Team titles via pinfall.
Daniel Bryan faced Big Cass in a Singles match.
Big Cass talked a lot of smack and talked pretty big the past weeks. He tried to convince everyone how he was more stronger and superior than the little guy. Sadly, I think he forgot to read-up on the definition of the “underdog” and the amount of Davids that managed to defeat their Goliaths in the WWE.
Daniel Bryan defeated Big Cass via submission.
Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn in a Singles match.
The match that might have you thinking is very one sided. Again, I’d have to remind you that the David vs. Goliath is also pretty much a present factor even here. Though, Sami isn’t really much of a David in moral sense to begin with.
Bobby Lashley won via pinfall.
The Intercontinental Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins vs. Elias in a Singles match for the Intercontinental Championship.
After the destruction of Elias’ custom guitar, would Seth eventually come to regret his actions?
Seth Rollins retained his Intercontinental title via pinfall.
💼 💷 The Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match: Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks vs. Ember Moon vs. Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Naomi vs. Lana.
After several weeks of qualifying matches and anticipation, this match would finally come to life for the second time in the Women’s division.
Alexa Bliss won the match as she retrieved the briefcase 💼.
Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal in a Singles match.
Is the bad blood between these two enough to call a rivalry? Well, I can’t exactly say that either of their actions don’t point towards one. One way or another, their differences would have to be settled at Money in the Bank.
Roman Reigns would defeat Jinder Mahal via pinfall.
The SmackDown Women’s Championship match: Champion Carmella vs. Asuka.
Through the past several weeks, the Champion Carmella has been more cocky and obnoxious. You might even say that the SmackDown Women’s Champion has been more than annoyingly overconfident. Is she prepared for Asuka or will she tap-out like she did this past Tuesday on SmackDown?
Carmella retained the SmackDown Women’s Championship via pinfall.
WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a Last Man Standing match for the WWE Championship.
This is one of the matches I have waited for quite some time to see, a continued rivalry and hopefully one that would conclude.
AJ Styles retained his WWE Championship by the deciding 10 Count.
Rowdy Ronda Rousey vs. RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax in a Singles match for the RAW Women’s Championship.
After a hard fought battle between Ronda and Nia, Alexa Bliss picked her timing perfectly as she ran out to the ring and attacked Rousey with her Money in the Bank briefcase. This would of course mean Ronda Rousey wins the match by disqualification, but also that the Champion retains her title.
No, no, no. Hold on, wait! There’s more.
Alexa Bliss cashed-in her Money in the Bank contract and won, becoming the NEW RAW Women’s Champion.
💼💷 The Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder match: Braun Strowman vs. Finn Balor vs. Kevin Owens vs. Bobby Roode vs. The Miz vs. Samoa Joe vs. Rusev (Happy Rusev Day) vs. Kofi Kingston.
What might have been a great showing at the Money in the Bank PPV, could also have been easily predicted in terms with the dominance he has had over Superstars as well as his actions since his debut.
Braun Strowman won the Money in the Bank Ladder match, claiming the briefcase after clearing his path of anyone that stood in his way.
