At the weekend, the Money in the Bank show was on. It was an interesting show! I had a good time watching it, and I’m glad that some of the things that happened happened.
You see, I’m a big fan of Bayley, and so the Womens Money in the Bank match was good, if at points a little stale. The action was good, I was hoping for either Ember Moon or Bayley to win, though throughout there were sections where what was going on wasn’t making sense. There was far too much of just one person doing something, or two people doing some wrestling, but while frequent, each bit didn’t last too long. I liked the section with Sonya DeVille and Mandy Rose, with Sonya carrying Mandy up the ladder, it was a mad section of the match. I really enjoyed the ending too. It also played into the rest of the night, but we also saw a similar things happen last year with Alexa Bliss.
Many of the other matches were good, some things didn’t make sense, such as the Steel Cage match, and the Roman and Elias section was okay I guess.
The back to back Womens title match didn’t go the way I wished, but it all came together. I was suspecting that Lacey Evans would actually wrestle second, coming out straight after Becky beating Charlotte, but it was the other way round. Lacey Evans and Becky put on a good match, it was enjoyable, but I think the ending was a bit sloppy.
Then Charlotte came out, which is what I was expecting, and really hammed up the evil stuff. Lacey came back out and got involved and cost Becky the title, which was then expected, as the two blondes were clearly in cahoots. From there, there was brawling and a whole mess until Bayley came out to save Becky, and eventually ended up immediately (in the grand scheme of things) cashing in her briefcase to win the title from Charlotte, in what was probably the best reception of the night to a win from anywhere. It was a very feel good moment, but we did see something similar happen last year, but that isn’t to really detract from the moment. All I can think is that they won’t do it again next year.
The Kevin Owens vs Kofi match was good, don’t know what else to say here, Kofi is having the best time, being so consistent at the moment, and it all feels well deserved.
Then the Men’s Money In The Bank happened, and it was a mess. But a good mess, bodies went everywhere, there were some crazy spots and great story telling. The match was fast paced for the most part, something was always going on, and it the backstage segments all night really bought the whole story together. It’s a shame that the briefcase holder is who it is, however, it does keep things both interesting, as he can turn up whenever, but also allows us, with the lack of presence, to be able to forget about it existing for a few months.
Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!
