WWE Money In The Bank 6/15/15

I’m not doing the Kick-Off show tonight, as my beloved Cleveland Cavaliers lost in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, I am just starting up with tonight’s Money in the Bank.

Here we go.

We are live in Columbus, Ohio with Michael Cole, Jerry “The King” Lawler, and JBL welcoming us to the show.

We hear a 10 bell salute for the legendary “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, who passed away this past Thursday.

Everyone is on the ramp, including Vince McMahon.

Very sad to hear, and he will be missed.

We hear Dusty’s music, that song has a special meaning to us now.

We kick the show off with Money in the Bank ladder match.

Dolph Ziggler Vs Kofi Kingston Vs Kane Vs Randy Orton Vs Neville Vs Sheamus Vs Roman Reigns.

Sheamus is Mr. Money in the Bank.  Reigns had an opportunity, but Bray Wyatt showed up from nowhere, and took out Reigns.

Not a good pick, in my opinion.  But a hard-fought match.

Renee Young is with Paige.

There hasn’t been a diva that has stood up to the Bella Empire.  While Paige hasn’t exactly been the best friend to any of these divas, they have reigned too long.  This all ends tonight.  You don’t change the world by doing nothing, you have to make that change.  For you Dusty.

Divas Title match is up now, Nikki Bella Vs Paige.

The referee is as corrupted as an NBA ref.  Brie comes in, and does the switch-a-roo, but Paige pins Brie to become a 3-time Divas champion.  Or at least she thought.  Brie showed the ref she stuffed her bra, and is Brie.  But instead of DQing the Bellas, he allows it to have Nikki sneak in with a Rack Attack, and pins Paige.

Whatever.

2 weeks ago, Ryback won the Elimination Chamber match to become the new Intercontinental Champion, but the next night Big Show issued the challenge.

The Miz shows up.

Ohio’s own The Miz comes out, gives us a O-H-I-O chant.  This is his people, but he left his people.  Because if you don’t live in New York, or LA, you’re not in.  Big Show stole the Intercontinental Title from him, and he is still contemplating pressing charges against Big Show.  But he will create a masterpiece, and he sits down at the commentating table, for….

The Big Show Vs Ryback, IC Title match is now.

Big Show wins by DQ.

3 shitting endings here on 3 matches.

John Cena Vs Kevin Owens is up now.

John Cena defeated Kevin Owens in what was for the first time ever, Cena performed a Canadian Destroyer.  He wins with a Stunner and Attitude Adjustment.

Wow.

Cena tried to shake Owens’ hand after the match, but Owens lays out Cena and nails a Powerbomb on the ring.

The real champ is here.

Cena is being helped to the back.

Renee Young is with Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose said a year ago at this event, he was screwed by Kane and now he knows he has what it takes to win the title.  Tonight, he gets that shot and told us he is “The People’s Champion”.  And for the first time, Rollins will be all alone.  No Shield, no Authority.  This is about respect, and tonight, he is getting payday.

We all lost a legend on Thursday, “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.  He was such a great talker, and was instrumental in the success of NXT.

A video tribute of Dusty Rhodes.

Tomorrow night, Dusty Rhodes:  Celebrating The Dream will air on WWE Network after Raw.

Tag Title match of The New Day Vs Prime Time Players is now.

Xavier tells us Kofi Kingston was robbed, just like he has been every year competing in Money in the Bank.

Big E tells us that cheaters should never win, especially when they are back from probation, like Buckeyes were.

But Kofi needs some clap therapy.

New Day Sucks.

Match is on.

Prime Time Players win the Tag Titles, Titus pins Xavier.

The Money in the Bank Kick-off show is here.

Earlier tonight, Sheamus won Money in the Bank Ladder match.

Bray Wyatt cost Roman Reigns the match, and now it will be Reigns Vs Wyatt, at WWE Battleground in 5 weeks.

Our main event, Seth Rollins Vs Dean Ambrose, for WWE World Title in a Ladder match is now.

Rollins wins the match, and retains his title when both men had the title, and the platform holding the title broke, sending both men to the mat, and Rollins has the strap at the end of the day.

Eden Stiles interviews Rollins, and we see HHH congratulating him, Seth told us he proved he is the greatest WWE Champion, of all-time.

Oddly enough, HHH is okay with that saying, because he didn’t blink and we end the show here.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

For everything, the show delivered with 3 good matches. I still don’t agree with Sheamus as the winner of Money in the Bank, but there has to be a reason, and it might have to do with the return of Brock Lesnar soon, right? Why not put Brock in there with Sheamus?

I also want to see Lesnar Vs Orton down the road too, it’s time to think of the possibilities, with Brock on board and his return is soon.

I also liked Rollins Vs Ambrose, but the victory seems like a “fluke” so I can see one more title match at Battleground. But these two have good chemistry together, as they have worked together for many years.

But once again, the match of the night was Cena Vs Owens. I question though whether Cena should have won. This is about Owens legacy, Cena doesn’t need a win for the rest of his career, Owens does need them.

But these two lit it up again, and I want to see part 3 at Summerslam, not 5 weeks from now. Build their feud up just to make their third encounter a “must-see”.

The rest of the matches were just not interesting, especially the divas. When will Charlotte make her long-awaited WWE debut? What about Sasha Banks? Becky Lynch? NXT divas are exciting, but in WWE? It truly is The Bella Empire, and now WWE is finally starting to admit that.

What were your thoughts on the show? Send them to me here, I will talk to you later for tonight’s Raw.
