WWE Money in the Bank
Las Vegas, Nevada at MGM Grand Garden Arena
Aired live July 2, 2022 on Peacock and pay-per-view
A video package opened the show… Pyro shot off on the stage… The broadcast team of Jimmy Smith, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton checked in from ringside. Smith clearly didn’t get the memo that Graves and Saxton did about wearing green. Mike Rome was the ring announcer and introduced the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match entrants.
Powell’s POV: I hope our American and Canadian readers are having a great holiday weekend, and welcome all to our MITB coverage. Jake Barnett and I will be recording a same night audio review for Dot Net Members (including our Patreon patrons). For those who didn’t watch the Kickoff Show, it was all talk and video packages with no matches.
1. Lacey Evans vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Liv Morgan vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Asuka vs. Shotzi vs. Becky Lynch in the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. The bell rang and everyone other than Asuka and Lynch went to the floor to fight over ladders. Asuka worked over Lynch and then pulled a ladder from the hands of Shotzi, but Lynch recovered and hit her from behind. Lynch got another ladder and tried to drop it on Asuka, who rolled out of the way.
Rodriguez tried and failed to pick up a ladder that Lynch and Bliss were lying on top of. Rodriguez ended up suplexing both women onto another ladder simultaneously. Shotzi tripped as she tried to run up a ladder in the corner, but she seemed okay.
Bliss was the first to set up a ladder in the middle of the ring and make a play for the briefcase, but Rodriguez pulled her down. Asuka hip-tossed Shotzi onto a ladder that was leaning in the corner. Asuka made a play for the belt, but Evans cut her off and was booed. Lynch tipped the ladder over and then Asuka and Evans took tame bump by landing on their feet in the ring.
Evans set up the ladder again moments later and was booed. Shotzi pulled her down and raced up the ladder, but Evans recovered and pulled her down. Evans went up and Shotzi pulled her back down. They climbed opposite sides of the ladder and Shotzi got a hand on the briefcase. Evans knocked Shotzi off the ladder. Evans was about to pull the briefcase down when Rodriguez climbed underneath her to stop it.
Morgan joined Evans and Rodriguez on the ladder and ended up performing a sunset bomb on Evans. Rodriguez was pulled down by Shotzi, who then climbed over her and then stomped her. Bliss climbed up the other side of the ladder, but Shotzi put her in Electric Chair position. Shotzi fell backwards and Bliss landed on the ladder. Ouch.
Lynch slammed Shotzi’s head off the top of the ladder to knock her down. Lynch climbed down and repositioned the ladder, which gave Shotzi enough time to recover and pull her down. Shotzi put Lynch on a ladder that was lying in the ring and then went for a top rope senton. Lynch rolled out of the way, causing Shotzi to crash and burn.
Asuka raced up the ladder and was stopped by Rodriguez. Asuka returned the favor. Rodriguez sent Asuka to ringside and followed. Rodriguez placed a ladder over the broadcast table and the ring. Asuka went after Rodriguez, who slammed her head onto the table. Rodriguez climbed onto the table and wanted to slam Asuka onto the ladder, but she escaped.
Asuka ended up on Rodriguez’s back. Lynch kicked Rodriguez, which put Asuka on the ladder that was draped over the ring and broadcast table. Lynch climbed another ladder and performed a leg drop (more like an ass drop) onto Asuka on the ladder, which both women sold on the floor while a “this is awesome” chant broke out.
Three ladders set up in the ring. Lynch shoved them both over, sending most of her opponents to ringside. Morgan ran in and stopped Lynch. Lynch kicked Morgan’s ladder toward the ropes, but Morgan pushed off the ropes with her foot to balance her ladder. Morgan drilled Lynch with a knee to the face to knock her down down, and then Morgan pulled the briefcase down to win the match…
Liv Morgan defeated Lacey Evans, Alexa Bliss, Raquel Rodriguez, Asuka, Shotzi, and Becky Lynch in 16:35 to win the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match.
Morgan was emotional afterward. Meanwhile, Lynch threw a massive fit at ringside after losing the match…
Powell’s POV: A decent MITB ladder match. It was sloppy at times and they didn’t create many truly dramatic near grab moments. On the bright side, they didn’t do anything ridiculously over the top, which is a concern with daredevil Shotzi in ladder matches. The finish surprised me in a good way. Morgan got the pin in the six-woman tag match on Smackdown and Michael Cole dubbed her as his favorite to win MITB. That’s typically a kiss of death moment heading into MITB, but I’m hopeful that the creative forces are aware of their usual tells and even used one to throw us off this time around. If so, I like it. It was also nice to see Morgan get emotional rather than flash a usual self satisfied smile that she has gone to for some of her bigger wins. With two women’s title matches still to come, Morgan has a couple of opportunities to cash-in tonight.
The Cody Rhodes update video package that originally aired on Raw was replayed… A video package set up the U.S. Championship match…
2. Theory vs. Bobby Lashley for the U.S. Championship. Smith, Graves, and Saxton called the match. Lashley performed an early spinebuster and set up for a spear, but Theory rolled away. Lashley followed up by knocking him off the ring apron. Lashley hoisted up Theory and wanted to drive him into the post, but Theory slipped away and sent Lashley into the post instead.
Lashley came back and repeated the spot, this time driving Theory into the post. Back inside the ring, Lashley set up for a spear, but Theory curled up in the fetal position. A short time later, Theory placed Lashley on the top rope and went for a move that Lashley stuffed. Theory threw a kick from the apron that Graves had to describe as a glancing blow.
Theory put Lashley in a chin lock. Lashley eventually fired up and regained offensive control. Lashley set up for a suplex, but Theory slipped away and rolled to the apron. When Lashley approached him, Theory clotheslined him over the top rope.
Theory went for a somersault move, but Lashley pressed him and eventually slammed him for a near fall. Theory tripped a charging Lashley into the corner and then dropkicked him for a two count. Theory called for his finisher, but Lashley slipped out of it and rolled him into a pin for a two count.
Lashley hoisted up Theory for a move, but Theory raked his eyes. Theory ran the ropes and speared Lashley. Theory went for his ATL finisher, but Lashley escaped and put him in the Hurt Lock for the win…
Bobby Lashley defeated Theory in 11:05 to win the U.S. Championship.
Powell’s POV: An entertaining match with Graves going really over the top in a fun way while singing the praises of Theory. Lashley winning frees up Theory for the rumored SummerSlam match with John Cena if they want to go in that direction. Plus, it gives WWE another strong secondary champion along with Gunther, which is important since both world titles are tied up with a part-time wrestler.
Backstage, MITB winner Liv Morgan was interviewed Sarah Schreiber, who asked her if she has decided who she will cash in on. Morgan got emotional again and spoke about how all she’s always wanted to be a champion. She said that for now, she thinks she just wants to celebrate her win…
A video package set up the Smackdown Women’s Championship match…
3. Bianca Belair vs. Carmella for the Raw Women’s Championship. Rome delivered in-ring introductions for the title match. Smith, Graves, and Saxton called the match. Carmella went for an early huracanrana, but Belair stuffed it and countered into a backbreaker. Belair did her handspring into the ropes. Carmella rolled out of the ring and Belair landed on her feet.
Belair rolled to the floor and hit a charging Carmella with a shoulder block. Belair returned to the ring and when she went after Carmella, who was on the apron, Carmella clotheslined her via the top rope. A short time later, Belair set up for a slam, but Carmella slipped away and pulled her down by her braid.
Belair came right back and executed a delayed vertical suplex after marching in place. Belair hit Carmella with nine shots in the corner, backflipped off the middle rope, and punched her for the tenth time. Carmella avoided Belair charging at her, causing Belair to hit the ring post. Carmella picked up a couple of two counts and then blasted Belair with a superkick for another near fall.
Carmella jawed at the referee and then barked at Belair. Carmella slapped Belair, who fired back with a punch and then hit the KOD for the win…
Bianca Belair defeated Carmella in 7:10 to retain the Raw Women’s Championship.
After the match, Carmella attacked Belair during her post match celebration. Carmella left the ring…
Powell’s POV: This was originally scheduled to be Belair vs. Rhea Ripley. With Carmella added as a late replacement, there was zero mystery regarding the outcome and this was a forgettable match. Still, the right person went over and the live crowd was vocal for Belair’s signature spots. I assume the post match attack by Carmella means they want to run this match back on Monday’s Raw since there isn’t much else to get out of the feud.
A SummerSlam ad aired and then the broadcast team spoke about the match from their desk at ringside. They also touted Logan Paul signing a WWE contract. Footage aired of Paul saying he didn’t sign his deal to team with The Miz, but rather so that he can beat his ass at SummerSlam…
Footage aired from earlier in the day of Alexa Bliss walking into a room and finding Lilly with a bunch of doll sized clothes. Bliss acted like Lilly told her that she bought it all. It turned out to be a credit card ad, which drew some groans and boos from the crowd…
The Usos made their entrance for the tag title match. Michael Cole, Pat McAfee, and Corey Graves checked in as the broadcast team. The Usos delivered a brief promo and then the Street Profits made their entrance and went into the crowd before coming to the ring…
4. Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso vs. “The Street Profits” Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles. Graves downplayed Kayla Braxton’s claim on Smackdown that the Ford and Dawkins are not getting along. Ford had Jimmy down early and went up top for his finisher, but Jimmy rolled to ringside.
A short time later, Jimmy performed a suicide dive onto Dawkins at ringside. The Usos followed up with a double suplex that drove Dawkins’ back onto the ring post. Once they returned to the ring, Dawkins was isolated by the Usos. Dawkins eventually blasted Jimmy with a punch, which led led to him making tagging in Ford.
Ford went for a top rope move, but Jey, who had also tagged in, superkicked him on the way down and covered him for a two count. Ford was isolated. Jey distracted the referee and then Jimmy hit Ford with a Drive By kick from the floor, which Cole said was a tribute to Roman Reigns.
The Usos dominated Ford for a few minutes. Ford eventually suplexed Jimmy on the apron. Ford made the slow crawl over and then made a diving tag. Dawkins performed a flip dive onto both Usos at ringside. Back inside the ring, Dawkins worked over Jimmy and performed a corkscrew neckbreaker for a near fall.
Ford tagged in. There was a cool spot with Dawkins shoulderblocking Jimmy, who flew into a slam from Ford for a near fall. A “this is awesome” chant broke out briefly. Both men tagged out. Dawkins put Jey on his shoulders and then Ford hit a top rope Blockbuster. Dawkins covered Jey for a near fall and sold anguish over not getting the pin.
Dawkins and Jey traded punches in the ring. Jey dropped Dawkins with a leaping enzuigiri and then tagged out. Dawkins put Jey on his shoulders and then Ford tagged in, but Jimmy ran and broke up their move. Ford leapt over both Usos, who hit him with a double superkick when he turned around. Jimmy covered Ford for a good near fall.
The Usos went for their finisher, but Ford countered into a huracanrana and ended up sending both Usos to ringside. Ford did his flip dive over the ring post onto the Usos on the floor and then yelled into the camera. Ford tossed Jey back inside the ring where Dawkins put him down with a spinebuster, and Ford followed with a big frog splash. Ford had Jey pinned, but Jimmy broke it up at the last moment.
All four men met in the middle of the ring. The fans cheered. Dawkins and Jimmy fought to ringside. Dawkins was dumped over the barricade. Back in the ring, there seemed to be a bit of confusion over a spot involving Ford and Jey, but the Usos ended up performing a double superkick and then put Ford down with a One and Done before pinning him.
Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso defeated “The Street Profits” Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins in 23:00 to retain the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles.
After the match, Ford spoke to the broadcast team from the ring. They replayed footage of the pin that showed Ford’s shoulder was off the mat, meaning the pin should not have been counted. The broadcast team agreed that Ford has a legitimate gripe…
Powell’s POV: The story of this match was clearly that John Cena was full of shit when he told the Profits that they just had to believe in themselves. Okay, maybe not. The match had a really slow build to the Profits’ comeback with Dawkins being isolated for a stretch, making a hot tag, only to have the Usos then isolate Ford again for several minutes. It took them a while to get there, but it was terrific once they kicked things into full gear. No complaints about the finish with Ford’s shoulder being up because it presumably will lead to a rematch at SummerSlam.
After some ads, a video aired with some religious imagery, a gold medal, and it closed with a shot of someone’s hand…
Powell’s POV: It looked like something they would do for Bray Wyatt, but it could certainly be Judgment Day related or something else entirely. I’m sure that some fans are already watching that footage like the Zapruder film. It will be fun to see what people come up with.
Las Vegas imagery was shown and then a video package set up the Smackdown Women’s Championship match… Natalya made her entrance wearing shades, which she handed to a child. The broadcast team acknowledged that it was a tribute to Bret Hart, who is celebrating his 65th birthday today. Ronda Rousey made her entrance while the broadcast team spoke about her history in Las Vegas…
5. Ronda Rousey vs. Natalya for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. Samatha Irvin delivered in-ring introductions for the title match. Cole, McAfee, and Graves called the match. Cole tried to play up the idea that Rousey was not completely healthy after Natalya put her in the Sharpshooter a couple weeks back. The crowd was pretty quiet during the first couple of minutes as they went back and forth.
Natalya caught Rousey in an ankle lock. Rousey escaped and applied the same move until Natalya rolled out of it. Natalya went for a kick that Rousey avoided, and then Rousey put her in the ankle lock again. Natalya reached the ropes and then rolled to the floor and got some boos. Natalya told McAfee to shut up. Rousey went to ringside and chased Natalya back inside the ring.
Natalya took offensive control and got a little more heat by mugging for the crowd. Natalya put Rousey in a sleeper, which Rousey escaped, only to have Natalya slam her to the mat. Natalya remained on the offensive until Rousey escaped a submission hold and put Natalya in a Sharpshooter. Natalya reached the ropes to break the hold.
Rousey set up for her finisher, but Natalya sent her crashing to the floor. The broadcast team played up Rousey possibly injuring her knee and how that softens her up for the Sharpshooter. Rousey ended up applying the hold on the apron, but Rousey powered out of it and that sent Natalya crashing into the ring post.
Rousey limped and then tried and failed to pick up Natalya for the Piper’s Pit move. Rousey went for an armbar. Natalya countered into a Sharpshooter attempt, which Rousey countered into an ankle lock. Natalya stepped over and went for the Sharpshooter again, but Rousey caught her in another submission hold and got the win.
Ronda Rousey defeated Natalya in 12:30 to retain the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
Powell’s POV: This was by far the flattest the crowd had been all night. They didn’t even pop for the finish. Yes, Rousey and Natalya were in a tough spot when it came to following the tag title match, but I think the flat crowd had more to do with the fans not buying Natalya as a threat and the fans just not being all that into Rousey. Let’s face it, Rousey is a natural heel. Fans will cheer for her when she’s working with the right heel, but I think all they need is a nudge and they will be happy to boo the hell out of her. But wait…
Rousey sat on the mat and sold the knee injury. Liv Morgan’s entrance music played. “Shit,” Rousey said while pulling herself up. Morgan ran out and cashed in her Money in the Bank contract…
6. Ronda Rousey vs. Liv Morgan for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. Morgan kicked Rousey, who put her in an ankle lock, which drew boos. Morgan kicked the bad knee of Rousey and then rolled her up and pinned her.
Liv Morgan defeated Ronda Rousey in 0:35 to win the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
After the match, Rousey picked up the Smackdown Women’s Championship belt and gave it to Morgan, then hugged her. Rousey raised Morgan’s hand and then left her to celebrate in the ring. Cole said Morgan’s mother, sister, and other family members were sitting behind him and watching this all play out in person.
Powell’s POV: Well, I didn’t see that one coming. Sure, you had to know there was a chance once Rousey started selling a knee injury as much as she did, but going into the show I would not have predicted a Morgan MITB win let alone a successful cash-in on Rousey. As much as Rousey was gracious in defeat, I really hope she sticks around and has a another heel run.
Cole and McAfee sat at ringside. Cole recalled being at the Performance Center and having Morgan introduce herself for the first time while telling him that she will be the Smackdown Women’s Champion someday…
A video package aired on Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar in a Last Man Standing match for SummerSlam…
Samantha Irvin served as the ring announcer for the main event. MVP came out with Omos and gave him a final pep talk before heading to the back. Likewise, Sheamus was accompanied by Ridge Holland and Butch during his entrance, but he sent them to the back. Unfortunately, Drew McIntyre had to bring the giant f’n sword to the ring with him.
Just as the match was about to start, Adam Pearce walked out and said he just wanted to comment on how special the night has been. He asked what better way to cap off the night than by adding to it. Pearce introduced Theory as the eighth entrant into the MITB match…
7. Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus vs. Omos vs. Sami Zayn vs. Riddle vs. Madcap Moss vs. Theory in the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match. Cole and McAfee called the match and assumed that Mr. McMahon was responsible for Theory being added to the match.
Omos was dominant to start until McIntyre knocked him out of the ring with a Claymore Kick. McIntyre and Sheamus tried to top one another while beating on Theory. Zayn made an early play for the briefcase that was hanging above the ring, but he was cut off by Moss. A short time later, Moss climbed the ladder, but Riddle raced up the other side. Omos pulled Moss down and blasted him with a shot to the chest. Omos pulled Riddle down and slammed him tot he mat.
Theory dove off the top rope at Omos, who caught him and chokeslammed him. Omos made a play for the briefcase, but Moss and McIntyre tipped the ladder over and Omos simply stepped off and was clotheslined to ringside. Riddle and Sheamus beat Omos with ladders at ringside and knocked him down. Several wrestlers tossed ladders over Omos on the floor.
Sheamus hit most of the other wrestlers with a ladder. Meanwhile, Rollins tried to race up a ladder in the middle of the ring, but Zayn cut him off. Sheamus set up another ladder. Theory climbed up the other side of Sheamus’s ladder. Sheamus knocked over the Rollins and Zayn ladder. Theory knocked Sheamus down and reached for the briefcase, but Moss pulled him down and hit him with a fallaway slam.
Moss made a play for the briefcase, but he dropped down when he spotted Zayn on the ropes behind him. Moss bashed Zayn’s head with a ladder and then place it over the bottom rope in the corner. Zayn ended up hitting Moss and then leapt over him and made a play for the briefcase, but Moss grabbed him and powerbombed him onto the ladder in the corner.
Moss and McIntyre ended up on top of the ladder. McIntyre knocked Moss down and got his hand on the briefcase, but Sheamus tipped his ladder over. Sheamus put McIntyre down with White Noise and then set up the ladder again. Riddle returned and worked over Sheamus with kicks. Sheamus came right back with the Irish Curse on Riddle.
Riddle performed a Draping DDT on Sheamus, whose legs were on a ladder instead of the ropes. Riddle ended up climbing to the top of a ladder in the corner of the ring and then performed a Floating Bro onto several opponents, which got a rise out of the crowd.
Omos returned to the ring and started destroying everyone. Riddle jumped onto the back of Omos and put him in a sleeper until Omos flung him off. Theory snuck in the ring and climbed the ladder. Omos pulled him down and gave him his tree slam finisher.
Sheamus hit Omos with a Brogue Kick, then Zayn gave Omos a Helluva Kick. Riddle put Omos in an armbar and then Moss shoved Omos over the top rope. McIntyre clotheslined Omos, and then Rollins hit a Stomp on the apron. All of Omos’s opponents ganged up and threw him through the broadcast table. A fun spot that drew a “holy shit” chant.
A brawl broke out amongst the wrestlers on the floor. Zayn snuck inside the ring and climbed the ladder until McIntyre pulled him down and ran him face first into the ladder. Sheamus slammed a ladder in the face of McIntyre. Sheamus placed a small ladder over the top rope in the corner of the ring. McIntyre put Sheamus down with a DDT.
McIntyre set up a ladder under the belt and over Sheamus. McIntyre got his hands on the briefcase, but Butch ran out and attacked McIntyre while Cole said there are no disqualifications. Butch put McIntyre in a sleeper. McIntyre stepped off the ladder. Sheamus freed himself and then dropped McIntyre with a Brogue Kick.
Sheamus placed the ladder over McIntyre and climbed the other side, but McIntyre pressed the ladder and knocked Sheamus down. McIntyre stood up and put Butch away with a Claymore Kick. McIntyre set up the ladder under the briefcase again. Sheamus returned and they fought near the top of the ladder until Zayn shoved it over and both men crashed onto the ladder that was set up over the top rope in the corner of the ring.
Zayn set up a ladder and made a play for the briefcase, but Moss ran out and shoved him down. Rollins tipped the ladder over and Moss’s legs landed awkwardly onto the ropes. Rollins performed the Stomp on Moss.
Riddle returned with a giant ladder and set it up next to the ladder that Rollins was on. Rollins punched Riddle off the ladder. Rollins got his hands on the briefcase, but Riddle returned and performed an RKO off the ladder on Rollins. Riddle got back to his feet and slowly climbed the bigger of the two ladders. Theory returned and climbed up the other side.
Riddle and Theory traded punches at the top of the ladder. Theory shoved Riddle down and then unhooked the briefcase to win the match…
Theory defeated Seth Rollins, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Omos, Sami Zayn, Riddle, and Madcap Moss in 25:25 to win the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match.
Theory stood on the ladder and took selfies with the briefcase.
Powell’s POV: An entertaining match with an outcome that would have been tough to predict given that Theory wasn’t actually advertised for the match. I’m happy to see WWE pushing a younger wrestler aggressively. This version of Theory is a pest heel. And that’s fine for now, but I continue to hope that they will flip the switch with him and he will become a more serious act when the time is right. I wonder if Theory winning MITB without actually qualifying is what will bring back John Cena?
Overall, this was a fun show with MITB winners that didn’t feel highly predictable. And it’s hard to believe that those who had Morgan winning would have predicted a successful cash-in on Ronda Rousey. Throw in the strong tag title match and this made for a strong show. I will have more to stay about it with Jake Barnett in our audio review for Dot Net Members (including our Patreon patrons) coming up later tonight.
Let me know what you thought of WWE MITB by voting for the best match and grading the overall show below in our post event polls. Have a great holiday weekend.
so they just announced the womens ladder case match is first….which means becky will win so she can try to do a cash in later….vince and repeat…dementia vince just cant kiss beckys and charlottes asses enough….all the other females are fillers and its a shame
Women’s MITB: 1. Liv 2. Becky 3. Asuka
Men’s MITB: 1. Riddle 2. Seth 3. Sami
Bianca, Ronda, and The Usos retain their titles.
Lashley wins the US Title.
Botchi Clamfart is going to kill someone in there. She needs to go back to the shitty cosplay SoCal indies.
“so they just announced the womens ladder case match is first….which means becky will win so she can try to do a cash in later”
Illiterate “fed dead” jackass says what?
That was hard to watch.
If they are going to continue to push the womens division this hard they should find ways to distinguish it from the mens and not try to force the women to wrestle the same style because it’s not working
One for one so far
…this did not age well.
“If they are going to continue to push the womens division this hard they should find ways to distinguish it from the mens and not try to force the women to wrestle the same style because it’s not working”
Agreed completely. They’ve got a few women who can do any style, but most of them are too small/weak to pull off the kinds of things they’re being asked to do.
Shotzi should never be on TV.
Bliss works best as the bitchy cerebral heel.
I’m still not sure what to think of Liv except that she cannot cut a promo. I was impressed that she didn’t botch the foot on the rope to bounce back spot.
Lacey looks great but that’s about it.
Raquel could be something but she’s not as strong as they think she is.
Becky is a star who needs to be more protected.
Asuka is useless at this point in her career.
Tag match was old school NWA slowwwww start. Lots of build. Picked up 2/3 way in. Ending was great
Time to break them up and push Ford.
Phenomenal ending to that tag match and holy shit I didn’t think Liv was cashing in tonight. When they mentioned the women’s MITB was 100%, I thought for sure Liv would try at some other time and Ripley would cost her the title.
I think everyone in that arena really thought Liv was gonna tap. Such great suspense WWE built there.
6 dudes tossing Omos like a lawn dart is one hell of a visual.
Vince just can’t let the women’s mitb last for more than 24 hours anymore.
I wish people would just be honest. You don’t want WWE to push new stars, you just want them to push the people you like and that’s it.
I can’t speak for others, but I want them to push new stars in ways where the new stars will actually stick. This version of Theory is iffy because he’s goofball pest heel, and they don’t stick as long term main eventers. He’s fine now in the role that he’s in. I just hope they intend to flip the switch and that he’ll click as a more serious act when the time is right. And I will be surprised if Liv is more than a transitional champion.
Does WWE have something against the women holding onto the briefcase? With the exception of Carmella who won in 2017, no woman winner held the briefcase more than one day.
2018 Alexis Bliss cashed in the same night
2019 Bayley cashed in same night
2020 Asuka awarded Raw Women’s title next night
2021 Nikki ASH cashed in next night
2022 Liv Morgan cashed in same night
Are they too afraid to create a story around an opportunistic female waiting until the perfect time?
Are we getting McMahon vs Heyman cutting promos on each other on TV in 2022?
Gotta love the neckbeard elite here bitching about whatever bullshit excuse they made up once they ran to twitter to find out what Tiny Con and the rest of the shitheads told them to complain about.
You are the only one referencing AEW (with the exception of this comment). Everyone else is discussing WWE and this ppv.
It’s the only way some of these female wrestlers can win the champiopship belt is beating a broken opponent
I think Theory could be the next Cena but he is being positioned more like the next Miz
