Preshow Match: The Colons (Primo & Epico) vs. The Hype Bros (Zack Ryder & Mojo Rawley)
The Action: The Colons make their entrance first, Hype Bros second. Pretty positive reaction for Ryder’s return. Ryder and Epico start it out. Ryder catches Epico with a dropkick, tags in Rawley. A double-team out of the corner leads to a near fall. Primo tags in and hits some chops. Mojo no-sells it, and corners Primo with a three-point stance. Mojo gets the crowd to chant “He ain’t hyped!” A bodyslam and a tag to Ryder, who hits a flying elbow leading to a Broski Boot, but Epico saves Primo. Ryder hits a basement dropkick on both men at ringside.
Primo and Epico cheat a bit to sweep out the bad leg of Ryder, and we go to break. When we return, Epico has a half-crab. Ryder reaches for a tag, but he’s cut off. Primo tags in, and continues to focus on the surgically repaired knee. Epico tags in and continues the assault, wrenching the leg. Ryder finally makes the hot tag to Mojo, and he’s on fire, hitting a shoulder on Primo. He catches Primo off of a cross body and hits Hyperdrive, for two. Ryder hits a Broski Boot to Epico. Ryder tags in and they hit the Hype Ryder for the win.
Winners: The Hype Bros
It’s good to see Zack Ryder back, but I feel like this is a step back for Mojo, who seems to have the personality and natural charisma to get over in a big way in the singles division. I don’t know what the future holds for this team, but I can’t shake the feeling that Mojo is in for a world of hurt.
Main Show: WWE Money in the Bank
Tom Phillips, JBL, and Byron Saxton are on the call tonight. We go into the arena in St. Louis.
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Tamina vs. Carmella (w/ James Ellsworth) vs. Natalya in a Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
The Action: The ladies make their entrances in the order seen above. Full entrances, not cut off for the one after. A video package then kicks in. It talks about some of the most famous women’s champions “blazing trails.” It’s a great video and leads up to the events that brought us here, and gives each woman a chance to say they’ll be the one to win.
Back in the arena, the bell rings. They all stare at the case, then break out for ladders. Tamina stays in the ring and kicks each woman + ladder off the apron. She’s left by herself with a ladder within seconds. Tamina picks it up, but Charlotte hits her from behind. The other ladies spill into the ring and start getting in their spots. Suplex from Charlotte. Superkick from Tamina. A chant for Becky breaks out. Samoan drop to Carmella.
Tamina looks dominant early on. She sets up a ladder across the second rope in the corner, and slingshots Natalya into it. The crowd cringes, as do I. She tosses another ladder into Becky, and then gets tackled from behind by Charlotte. Charlotte hits her with a ladder, but Natalya takes her out and sends her out of the ring. Meanwhile Lynch sends Tamina flying after hitting her with a ladder.
Becky and Natalya each grab an end of a ladder and have a tug of war. They team up and take out Tamina, then go back to the tug. Natalya gets control and hits a bodyslam on Lynch onto the ladder. She sets the ladder up in the middle of the ring. She climbs up slower than anyone in the universe should ever climb. Charlotte stops her. She kicks Charlotte off twice. Charlotte goes at her a third time, and hits an electric chair drop.
Now it’s Charlotte’s turn to climb. She shows a bit more urgency. Carmella takes out her leg and Charlotte is straddling the legs of the ladder. Carmella climbs over her and then climbs to the opposite side. She reaches, Charlotte meets her up top, and the two trade blows. Charlotte bounces Carmella’s head off the ladder and grabs the clamp of the case. They continue to trade blows. Tamina breaks it up and sends the ladder crashing, both ladies flying off and getting hung in the ropes.
Natalya hits Tamina with a ladder to the gut. Tamina sells it with various profanities. Lynch comes in, but ends up in a Sharpshooter. Carmella kicks Nattie in the face. Charlotte slams Carmella to the mat. Nattie hits a butterfly suplex to Charlotte. Lynch sends Nattie into the ladder in the corner, and follows it with a springboard sidekick. She sets the ladder up mid-ring. Carmella back in, breaking it up. She launches Lynch into the ladder in the corner, but Lynch counters and stands on the ladder. Carmella hits a handstand head scissors. She sets the big ladder up in the middle and climbs. Charlotte rips her down and hits a boot, and one on Lynch for good measure.
At ringside, Tamina clotheslines Natalya. She heads in to meet Charlotte and hits her in the back. Tamina hits a headbutt on Charlotte but loses her balance and falls to the mat. Tamina knocks the ladder over, and gets speared through the ropes. One more spear from Charlotte, this time into the stairs. Looked nasty.
Charlotte climbs up to the top rope and hits a corkscrew dive onto Tamina and Natalya. All three are laid out at ringside. In the ring, Carmella makes the climb, but Becky Lynch stops her and powerbombs her in the ring. Lynch climbs up by herself. Ellsworth runs in and tips the ladder over. He drags Carmella to the ladder and points at her to start climbing, but then he looks at the briefcase and does the climbing himself. He takes the briefcase off and then tosses it to Carmella, who is sitting on the ground. Carmella catches it and the bell rings, but the referees start talking this over, since this has never happened before. Ellsworth runs in to the referees, yells at them, then grabs the mic and announces that Carmella is the winner. Carmella’s music kicks in. The fans are not ok with this.
Winner: Carmella to become the Money in the Bank winner
I’m happy Carmella won here, but this went down in a bad way. The fans have an expectation that they will see one of the ladies climb the ladder and take down the case. They didn’t get that tonight. Twitter is on fire too – saying that this proves WWE’s view that the women need men to do their work for them. Hard to argue with that logic.
Backstage, Dasha Fuentes interviews Lana about challenging for the Women’s Title tonight. She says the women are very lucky that she was not in the ladder match because it would’ve been very different. She also says last week she crushed Naomi. Dasha has doubts about her success based on the fact she’s never had a match. Lana vows to win.
The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E, w/ Xavier Woods) vs. The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso) for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship
The New Day cut a promo on their way to the ring, mocking The Usos for comparing their Smackdown tenure to running a prison. Bad soap jokes occur. Same old New Day.
The Action: Jimmy Uso and Kofi Kingston start it out. Kofi does some fancy footwork to flip out of a wrist lock. Jey tags in and lays in a right hand. Body slam. Kofi takes out the legs and tags in Big E, who hits a splash on the apron. Two-count. Kofi back in, he hits a kick and a cover for two. Jimmy Uso tags in and yanks the rope down. Kofi goes flying over the top rope and lands on the floor. It looks nasty. But Kofi makes it to his feet and gets clotheslined inside out.
Outside the ring, the Usos team up and suplex Kofi into the ring post. They roll Kofi in and wear him down. Jimmy legal, he keeps Kofi grounded with a headlock. Double team off of a tag. Jey lays in a right hand. Kofi fights off of their apron. He goes for a sunset flip, but Jimmy literally grabs Kofi’s hair and drags him out of the ring.
Back in the ring, Kofi hits a flying stomp out of nowhere. Hot tag to Big E, who grabs Jimmy and tosses him like he’s nothing. Three suplexes later, and Big E is shaking his hips. Jimmy tags him with a kick to the midsection and an uppercut. Big E fires back with an STO for two. Big E sets up for a Big Ending, Jimmy counters. Big E tags in Kofi, and then hits a spear through the ropes to the outside. Kofi takes out Jey. Jimmy ducks Trouble in Paradise. He misses a splash off the ropes. Tag to Jey, who drops a kick on the leg. Jey rolls Kofi over and locks in a chicken wing half-crab. Jimmy Uso tries to take out Big E, but Big E catches him and suplexes him at ringside. Jey caught it and hits a superkick. He goes to kick Kofi. Kofi does a spin-kick at the same time and locks in a Dragon Sleeper off the counter. It gets pretty frantic here. Kofi goes for an SOS, only gets two.
Jey hits a superkick on Kofi and goes for a frogsplash. Big E is legal though. He catches Jey in mid air and hits a Big Ending. Jimmy barely breaks it up (I’m pretty sure the ref counted to three actually). Big E tosses both Usos out of the ring and Kofi leaps onto both of them. New Day sets up midnight hour and it hits. Once more, Jimmy breaks up the pin.
The Usos bail out of the ring and grab their belts. The referee starts his count and The Usos retreat through the audience.
Winners: The New Day via Countout, The Usos retain the Championship
This was a pretty crazy match with some good spots. The countout finish makes sense in the context of The Usos. Obviously, this is going another pay-per-view, maybe two. I’m fine with that.
We see a tweet from Daniel Bryan, who is returning on Tuesday. He’s not happy with how the women’s Money in the Bank played out, and he’s gonna address it first thing on Tuesday.
We see Cowboy Bob Orton backstage chatting with Sgt. Slaughter before we go back to ringside.
Naomi (c) vs. Lana for the Smackdown Women’s Championship
Naomi enters first, Lana second. This makes me nervous for a title change… Championship intros here.
The Action: Naomi immediately attacks Lana. Lana cowers in the corner. The referee pulls Naomi out of the corner and Lana immediately pushes her and yanks the hair. Naomi sweeps the leg and slides in with a punch to the face. She hits a running bulldog into the second turnbuckle, but misses a cross-body. Two-count for Lana.
Lana is screeching non-stop during the match. It’s annoying. The fans chant “We want Rusev.” So do I. On the apron, Lana yanks Naomi’s leg over the top rope and kicks her to the floor. She rolls Naomi back into the ring. Cover for two. Lana hits a pair of knees to the back and a chinlock. Naomi gets to her feet but is yanked back to the mat again. Snap suplex from Lana sends Naomi’s legs into the bottom rope. She goes for one more, and once again, Naomi’s legs hit the rope. Lana twists the knee around the bottom rope. Cover for two.
Lana continues to focus on the knee. Naomi counters with an armbar. On their feet, Naomi kicks Lana out of the corner and follows it up with a trio of roundhouses. Naomi hits Rear View for two. Lana manages to hit her Sitout Spinebuster for two, but then Carmella’s music hits.
Carmella and James Ellsworth skip their way to the ring. She goes to hand the briefcase to the timekeeper, but then changes her mind. Lana goes for a cover, two. She starts punching Naomi. Naomi does a sunset flip into a submission move and Lana taps out.
Winner: Naomi to retain the Smackdown Women’s Championship
Carmella looks on from ringside as Naomi raises the belt.
Naomi needed to retain here, and I’m glad she did, even if I predicted that Lana would win. Lana didn’t do bad, either. She was in the right places at the right times, but this wasn’t a very good match overall.
The announcers cue up another Fashion Files segment, this one called Fashion Vice (mocking Miami Vice). Fandango is on a big cell phone, labeled “Property of Paul E.” Fandango assures Breeze that the “Boys in the lab” are sending over some forensics. A fax comes in and the tone scares Breeze. It says “Answer the Door.” He comes back with a VHS, and it’s two men in the shadows that claim to be the ones who trashed their office. They want them to meet them in the ring tonight.
Back at ringside, strange music hits, and hearts appear on the stage. It’s Maria Kanellis and Michael Bennett! Well, Mike and Maria Kanellis, apparently. I guess he’s taking her name. She introduces herself to the audience. He says he is Mike Kanellis. Maria says the “First Lady is back in WWE.” The two are very gushy. She says for seven years she’s been searching for the perfect partner. He says she found him. “And now, we are here to educate everyone on Smackdown Live the Power of Love.” The two embrace each other and start slow-dancing, all smiles. They kiss and walk away.
At the announcer’s desk, Tom Phillips says “Mike and Maria Kanellis are here.” JBL deadpans “He took her name.” Funny.
The announcers recap the ending of the Women’s Money in the Bank match. Shane McMahon also tweeted his displeasure at the outcome of the match. The announcers then cue up a video package for Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton. It’s primarily clips of Jinder winning the title and being heralded in India.
Before the match, there’s a plug for the legends from the area, all sitting at ringside – Greg Gagne, Larry “The Axe” Hennig, Baron Von Raschke, Sgt. Slaughter, Cowboy Bob Orton, and Ric Flair. Greg Hamilton does a great job announcing these guys.
The Singh Brothers come out to introduce the WWE Champion, Jinder Mahal. Once again, champ first.
Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Championship
Huge pop for Randy Orton in his hometown.
The Action: The bell rings and both men square off. This has a big-match feel thanks to the hot St. Louis crowd. Orton immediately goes on the offense, cornering Mahal and hitting a series of strikes. Orton nearly hits an RKO, but Mahal bails out of the ring. Back in the ring, Orton takes Mahal to the mat with a Thesz Press. He hands Mahal across the top rope and begins to stomp. The action spills outside. Orton maintains control, sending Mahal into the announcer’s table. He rolls Mahal back in, and Mahal goes to the opposite apron. Orton follows. The Singh Brothers get on the apron and distract Orton, and Mahal sends him over the top to the floor.
Orton appeared to tweak his leg on the fall, and Mahal goes on the attack, focusing on the leg. He sends Orton into the ring steps. Mahal wrenches the leg over the apron and then back in the ring, across the ropes. The action spills back outside again and Orton regains control. He tosses Mahal into the laps of the legends at ringside, but when he tries to send Mahal into the announcer’s table, Mahal counters, driving him leg first into the table instead.
Mahal rolls Orton back into the ring. Mahal works the leg. Orton tries to get to the ropes. Orton manages to break free. He hits a fallaway slam. Jinder rolls out of the ring once more. He sends Orton into the barricade, knee-first. He rolls Orton into the ring. Orton goes for another RKO, but eats a kick to the face for two. Jinder continues to keep Orton grounded, focusing on the knee. He locks in a Figure Four. Orton rolls it over, reversing the pressure. Mahal makes it to the ropes.
Mahal continues to attack the leg. Mahal sets Orton up on the top rope. Orton fights free with a headbutt. He dodges a splash in the corner, and sets Mahal up top himself. Orton sets up for a superplex and it connects for two. The two trade strikes again. Orton picks up steam with a set of clotheslines and a power slam. He hits the draping DDT. Orton teases the RKO and it connects, but it’s near the ropes. The Singh Brothers put Mahal’s leg on the ropes to break the pin.
The referee ejects The Singh Brothers from ringside. Before the two walk away, they have a staredown with the legends. The two chat with each other and then walk back over, talking trash. They attack Cowboy Bob, pulling him by his coat. Orton comes in to defend his dad, and tosses both brothers around, sending one into the ringpost and into the timekeeper’s area, the other onto the announcer’s table, just like last time.
Orton rips apart the announcers’ desks (two of them) and grabs the other brother, laying in some punches. He RKO’s Sunil onto the floor, and then leaps from one table onto the other to RKO Samir. He rolls back into the ring, and Mahal kicks Orton’s leg, following it up with The Khallas for the win.
Winner: Jinder Mahal to retain the WWE Championship
This was the best match these two have had to date, and easily Jinder’s best match as champion. He’s developed a real sense of confidence in the role, and it shows. Orton seemed to be pretty fired up too. As expected, Cowboy Bob played a part in the finish. I’m curious to see if we get a third round with these two.
Breezango (Tyler Breeze & Fandango) vs. The Ascension (Konnor & Viktor)
The announcers sell it like it’s some sort of shock. I’m not surprised.
The Action: It takes about two seconds for the rules to get thrown out. After some chaos Viktor hits a knee to Breeze for two. Konnor legal, He keeps Breeze grounded.
Fandango hits a spin kick and goes up top, but a distraction leads to a spinebuster for two. They set Dango up for a tandem move, but Breeze kicks Konnor off the top rope and Fandango rolls Viktor up for the win.
Complete filler/popcorn break.

AJ Styles vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens vs. Baron Corbin vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Shinsuke comes out second to last, but he doesn’t even finish his entrance. Baron Corbin attacks him from behind, knocking him down.

Winner: Baron Corbin to become the Money in the Bank winner
Corbin stands on the ladder, holding the briefcase up high as the other participants sell the brutality of the match. The announcers cue up highlights, and back in the arena, Corbin holds the briefcase as the show comes to a close.
I called Corbin to win this match as well, and I think it was a smart move. He’s good at talking trash, and has built up a ton of equity over the past year. Having him in main event matches against guys like AJ Styles certainly helped. I think he has the potential to be a great Money in the Bank holder, and I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with him next.
Looking at the match in the micro, I was really down on how Nakamura was eliminated from the match initially, but I think it played off well in the end. He got a huge pop for his return and had some great action with AJ Styles. He didn’t win the match, either, which could have envoked a “Roman’s Sleeping” situation from the Royal Rumble years ago.
This was a tremendous match, but was it enough to make up for the rest of the show? That’s tough to say. There were some good things tonight, but much of it was disappointing. There was a real opportunity to make the women’s Money in the Bank match special and they blew it. And no, it’s not because a man grabbed the briefcase. It’s the way it went down. If Carmella had ordered Ellsworth to get it, or pushed her up the ladder to get it herself, or hell – carried her up the ladder to grab it herself, I’d have been much happier with it. But instead, he just climbed up without being told, grabbed it, and threw it to her. It fell completely flat, and that’s a shame because I actually wanted Carmella to win.
Regardless, here we are.
Tuesday should be interesting. Daniel Bryan returns, plus we’ve got Mike and Maria Kanellis in the mix somehow now. We’ve got two new Money in the Bank holders, and a lot of possibilities.
Thank you to everyone that followed along with me tonight, and I’m sorry for the delays. Bill has your Raw coverage tomorrow, and I’ll see you Tuesday for Smackdown!
