What we schooled from WWE Money in a Bank 2016
June 20, 2016 - WWE
WWE betrothed mass from a 2016 book of a annual Money in a Bank event. While that mass mostly happened late in a unequivocally extensive night of wrestling, it happened all a same — and it is clearly heading to something that many of a wrestling star has been watchful roughly dual years for.
We have a whole lot of matches to cover, so let’s get right to it.
Golden Truth defeats Breezango
This has been a comedy feud, and that continued on Sunday night when Tyler Breeze and Fandango were hardly means to combat after Golden Truth incited adult their tanning opposite so high that Breezango were burnt to a crisp. Golden Truth won, Breezango was broke and we approaching haven’t seen a finish of this feud.
What we learned: Wrestling with a sunburn is unequivocally difficult, generally when your opponents won’t stop chopping a boiled skin off your chest. Breezango still attempted to win, and roughly did, yet they couldn’t overcome a unequaled pain of someone touching your sunburn while you’re looking like zombies who fell defunct during a beach. This is presumably a biggest or misfortune argument ever, depending on how most we like fun.
Lucha Dragons better The Dudley Boyz
There wasn’t a whole lot of build to this match, nor was a whole lot going on during it. However, one half of a Lucha Dragons, Kalisto, flipped and kicked all around a Dudleyz, so this kickoff compare had something to offer.
What we learned: WWE hasn’t totally mislaid about what Kalisto can do, and he got time to uncover off in this tab contest. What that could lead to subsequent is unknown, however.
WWE Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (c) defeats Gallows and Anderson, The Vaudevillains, and Enzo and Cass
This compare had some good moments, yet a finish was also messy to a indicate of detriment. Luckily, it happened early adequate in a uncover that it didn’t leave too green a ambience in anyone’s mouth, and The New Day maintaining in a conditions where a detriment could have simply happened was a pleasing surprise.
What we learned: WWE isn’t utterly prepared to take a tab group belts off Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods usually yet. Enzo and Big Cass could unequivocally good be tab champions someday, yet this compare was a sign that Cass is going to champion of a whole association during some point, too: he roughly single-handedly took out any other competition in a compare when he got his possibility in a ring. Gallows and Anderson didn’t win as expected, yet they had something else to occupy them after on, anyway. The Vaudevillians were given usually as most of a possibility to win as a 3 teams they were facing, and that’s good news for how WWE views this pairing.
Baron Corbin defeats Dolph Ziggler
This was a blow-off compare — we hope, anyway — for a argument that has concerned a whole lot of shots to a beans. It was changed from a pre-show to a categorical uncover dual days before a event, and it was transparent given once it happened: Ziggler and Corbin got time to uncover that a rookie Corbin is going to be tough to stop, even for someone who doesn’t know when to quit like Ziggler.
What we learned: It turns out that Corbin didn’t have to punch Ziggler in his nethers to win during Extreme Rules, yet instead did it given he could. With bulb shots bootleg once more, Corbin went a some-more normal track of throwing Ziggler around like it was zero until Dolph couldn’t get adult again. Baron will approaching pierce on to something else after holding down WWE’s turn one gatekeeper, and Ziggler can collect a subsequent wrestler he’ll face exclusively for months during a time.
Charlotte and Dane Brooke better Becky Lynch and Natalya
The compare was solid, yet a pivotal here was a story elements. Frustrated with nonetheless another better opposite Charlotte, Natalya pounded her longtime crony Becky after a match. Natalya has been a face for so prolonged that this was a genuine surprise, and given that total with Becky’s recognition and ability, we’re in for a fun ride.
What we learned: Becky Lynch vs. Natalya is a argument we wish that we didn’t know we wanted. Dana Brooke is a biggest dependent of all-time, if we ask Dana Brooke. Charlotte and Dana seem to be behind on a same page after contrariety was teased, and given Becky and Natalya all of a remarkable have differences to reconcile, that leaves a other dual giveaway to pierce on to something else. Probably with Charlotte’s Women’s Championship attached.
Apollo Crews defeats Sheamus
Apollo Crews is a new man in city and a avatar for a New Era in Sheamus’ frustrated-veteran mind. Sheamus didn’t take Crews’ severely enough, and it cost him with a well-timed roll-up from a latter while Sheamus argued with a ref about how prolonged counting to 3 should take.
What we learned: These dual wrestled as if there are matches still to come in this feud, and given how tough they motionless to strike any other in a time they were given, that’s a good thing. Expect fewer chinlocks in turn two, and distant some-more fists to a face. And also substantially some-more glorious flipping from a agile-as-he-is-strong Crews.
AJ Styles defeats John Cena
Bumping a ref is a tough story to navigate — it mostly feels like a cop-out, a approach to equivocate resolution, or a inexpensive tactic for changeable censure for a loss. Here, though, it was used well, with a ref going down prolonged adequate for Gallows and Anderson to hurt an impossibly well-balanced back-and-forth between Cena and Styles — and yet Styles suggestive it was happening, given he was already laying on a mat. Styles can opposite claims of intrigue by indicating out he was down and out, Cena can contend he deserves a rematch regardless, and afterwards we get to do this all over again. #blessed
What we learned: Styles is some-more gifted and able than even Cena gave him credit for. Cena is much, most harder to put divided than anyone Styles has faced in his shining past, and it showed when a common strategy got Styles close, yet not all a approach there. Both parties managed to put a other over as a fable in a lead-in to this match, yet still managed to blink what creates their competition so good in a compare itself. Now, armed with a believe of what they’re indeed traffic with, a second compare of this argument is approaching to demeanour a whole lot different.
Money in a Bank Ladder Match: Dean Ambrose defeats Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, and Alberto Del Rio
Money in a Bank Ladder Matches are always good. It’s usually how good they are that’s a question, and this one falls on a “really, unequivocally good” apportionment of a spectrum. Every singular performer in this compare was given what felt like a genuine eventuality to win a briefcase and a WWE World Heavyweight Championship agreement inside, that done any intensity leader toward a finish feel that most some-more real. Then, Dean Ambrose got his moment, winning a briefcase he should have won dual years ago before Seth Rollins cheated his approach into that. More on that in a bit.
What we learned: Ambrose is one of a handful of WWE performers who, as shortly as a association pays courtesy to them in a suggestive way, a infancy of their fan bottom is all-in on him again. It’s given they can make him seem like a third most-important of 3 former Shield members for as prolonged as they have, and afterwards put him in position to win Money in a Bank — and after a WWE World Heavyweight Championship — clearly in an instant. They’ve usually never left all a approach with it, withdrawal all to teases until now. Step one in interlude a teasing and indeed cashing in on that Ambrose adore came in this Money in a Bank ladder match.
A whole lot of other things went down — Owens and Del Rio seem unfailing to feud, presumably over how mostly Del Rio uses a word “perro” and what he thinks a dog indeed is. That would leave Sami Zayn accessible for a main-roster argument with Cesaro, who Zayn is clearly irritating a small bit some-more any time they speak. We’ll have to wait for RAW for some-more clarity on a fallout of a rest of a bunch, though.
United States Championship Match: Rusev (c) defeats Titus O’Neil
Rusev was approaching to crush, and while it took him a small longer to do so than anticipated, he eventually got his vanquish on and successfully shielded opposite O’Neil in a compare that was mostly meant to ease a assembly down after a ladder match. And let people watch a finish of Game 7 of a NBA Finals before Money in a Bank’s categorical eventuality started.
What we learned: Rusev will kick adult your father on Father’s Day and afterwards massage it in your face. Titus O’Neil won Celebrity Dad of a Year in 2015, and his kids were during ringside for his championship match. Big mistake, Titus:
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match: Seth Rollins defeats Roman Reigns (c)
Seth Rollins is back, and a pretension he never mislaid done it behind to his waist. These dual put on a categorical eventuality that WWE substantially wishes had been a categorical behind in Apr during WrestleMania — or, during a least, WWE wishes Mania’s categorical eventuality was perceived scarcely as well.
What we learned: Seth’s reconstructed knee is operative usually fine, as he strike his energy moves and flipped around with forward desert in a extensive categorical event. He’s also good adequate to kick Roman Reigns — yet help, yet interference, yet intrigue — and seemed to be a good man in this compare notwithstanding starting it as a ostensible bad guy. Also, contend what we wish about Reigns’ impression and WWE’s growth of it, yet a dude is bone-head as ruin in a ring and a impression is entrance along… generally given he seemed to be operative some-more heel than face in this match-up.
Also also, this compare gave us this absurd opposite of a stalk that was so overwhelming that it function substantially never crossed your mind:
Money in a Bank Contract Cash-In: Dean Ambrose defeats Seth Rollins (c)
Rollins didn’t get to be champion for long, as Ambrose done good on his guarantee to cash-in after winning a Money in a Bank briefcase. He strike Rollins from behind — a fit move, given it was a restraining adult of a lax finish in their attribute from over dual years ago — and became a third ex-Shield member to reason a WWE World Heavyweight Championship of a night.
What we learned: Ambrose is able of being a WWE champ, and valid it by not usually winning a briefcase, yet afterwards cashing in on Rollins as he pronounced he would behind on final week’s RAW. Money in a Bank is the annual eventuality tied to so most of Ambrose’s impression and career. Money in a Bank 2014 featured Rollins intrigue in a suggested compare to win a briefcase that Ambrose should have. Then, during 2015’s event, a dual had a ladder compare for a championship Rollins had won with a same sinister briefcase, one in that Rollins defended after both competitors strike a belligerent with a pretension during a same time. This time, things were different, with Ambrose exorcising all those Rollins’ demons in one night.
Next, we’ll approaching get Ambrose vs. Rollins during WWE’s subsequent special event, Battleground, and that should move us to a Shield Triple Threat Championship Match we’ve all been watchful for given even before Rollins initial won a pretension in 2015. Maybe even as shortly as SummerSlam. It’s happening, y’all.
