On Sunday night the Money In The Bank PPV took place in Las Vegas and did it live up to the hype and was it the greatest MITB PPV in history. You will have to the end of this review to see my overall thoughts, as I always do I will provide my three count as well as the results.
1) New WWE World Heavyweight Champion
Dean Ambrose had a busy night first he was involved in the Money In The Bank ladder match. The Lunatic Fringe found a way to survive and he became Mr Money In the Bank. This guaranteed Ambrose a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, for a entire year until he decides to cash in his briefcase.
Ambrose didn’t want to long to cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase he did it after the main event. Seth Rollins was celebrating after he defeated Roman Reigns to become a two time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Then Ambrose music hit the crowd exploded then he attacked Rollins from behind with his briefcase. Then Ambrose officially cashed in his briefcase and hit the Dirty Deeds on Rollins and he became the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, all his hard work finally paid off now he is on top of the world. I am not going to lie I wanted Kevin Owens to win in the MITB ladder but I am not surprised that Ambrose won the match and cashed in his briefcase because he teased that on RAW.
2) Dream Match
It was 15 years in the making between John Cena and AJ Styles it was highly anticipated as expected. This contest had a big fight feel to it and the crowd was invested the entire match, with let’s go Cena chants Let’s go Styles chants this match was filled with unbelievable spots and counters by both men.
Both men were able to kick out of their respected finishers an AA and Styles Clash. These two took each other to the limit Styles would receive another AA Cena connected with, but AJ Styles kicked by accident and the referee had gone down.
It was obvious that The Club would be involved in some capacity and they did just that, Anderson and Gallows came down to the ring, they picked up Cena up and hit him with their Magic Killer. Then AJ friends put him on top of Cena for the biggest win of his young WWE career.
3) Fatal 4 Way match
I believe this match was the perfect way to start the PPV off. Then before the match started Enzo Amore was firing shots at the previous tag teams calling Aiden English and Simon Gotch “Monopoly Men and telling Gallows and Anderson that they will send them back to Japan.
This once again shows Enzo Amore creativity on the mic to constantly improvise and entertain the fans like he always does. I thought that all four teams showcased themselves very well as expected and it was complete chaos. The Club were about to win the WWE Tag Team Championships, when they hit the Magic Killer on English but Big E broke up the pin fall attempt.
After Big Cass took out Gallows with a big boot this allowed Kingston and Big E sealed the victory, when they put Anderson down with a Midnight Hour to score the pin fall. I am going to be completely honest I was shocked that the New Day was able to retain their WWE Tag Team Championships because I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give The Club the titles.
It looks like the New Day will end up breaking the longest WWE Tag Team title reign in history with their win it gave them 301 days, and Brian Kendrick and Paul London record is 331 days. It was fitting because The New Day started their title reign back at SummerSlam 2015 in a Fatal 4-Way Match.
Overall I thought the PPV was a solid PPV I would give it an 8 out of 10 but the only problem is that the crowd, was dead up until Cena against Styles match and then from that point on they were invested.
