Money In The Bank, the annual pay per view that almost determines who has an almost guaranteed WWE Championship reign at some point in the next year. I’ll get to that match shortly. There have only been two weeks of build to this show so the main event continues where it left off at Elimination Chamber with Seth Rollins defending once again against Dean Ambrose. Ambrose has been a thorn in Rollins’ side, keeping hold of the WWE Championship belt and staying away from Rollins where he can. It was Roman Reigns who made the challenge to Rollins on behalf of Dean Ambrose, a challenge Rollins accepted, telling the rest of The Authority that he doesn’t need them.
Six of the competitors involved in the Money In The Bank ladder match were announced at Elimination Chamber, namely Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Sheamus, Kofi Kingston, Neville and Dolph Ziggler. Kane was later added to the match, representing The Authority. They have all been battling in various singles match in the past two weeks as they all looked to get a psychological advantage heading into the event. Kevin Owens beat John Cena at Elimination Chamber and Cena very quickly demanded a rematch between the two. This rivalry has got rather personal and has involved some of John Cena’s best ever promos. Kevin Owens’ son is a big John Cena fan which is something that Kevin Owens isn’t happy about.
The New Day will be defending their Tag Team Championships against The Prime Time Players. Darren Young and Titus O’Neil were the final team remaining in the Elimination Chamber match that New Day won and then on Smackdown they beat The Lucha Dragons and The Ascension to become number one contenders to the titles. Nikki Bella defended her Divas Championship against Paige two weeks ago on Raw and Nikki retained her title after she swapped places with Brie and Brie rolled up Paige for the victory. Paige gets her rematch against Nikki tonight. Also tonight Ryback will defend the Intercontinental Championship against a man that takes offence at Ryback calling himself “The Big Guy” in The Big Show. Big Show knocked out Miz on Miz TV and announced himself as the number one contender.
On the Money In The Bank kick-off show R-Truth defeated King Barrett.
The show begins with all of the superstars gathered on the stage in tribute to Dusty Rhodes who has recently passed.
A video package then plays promoting the Money In The Bank ladder match, WWE World Heavyweight Championship match and United States Championship match.
Michael Cole welcomes us to the Nationwide Arena where 15,277 fans are on hand.

And that was Money In The Bank 2015. It felt like a pretty run-of-the-mill pay per view. There were some good matches, others not so good. The Money In The Bank ladder match was a good one, my problem with these matches are that they seem so choreographed, more like a series of spots which means they don’t always flow too well. It was a star-studded field and it was Sheamus that won the match. Obviously Sheamus has been WWE Champion before so this match wasn’t about making a new star but it does push Sheamus back into the main event and he has been great since he returned, getting some real heel heat. I liked New Day coming out and getting involved, a win for Kofi could have been interesting. Sheamus wins though and it’ll be interesting to see when he cashes in his briefcase, especially as we currently have a heel champion.
Nikki Bella and Paige were next and this wasn’t a terrible match. I actually really liked the finish to this. They tried to beat Paige in the same way that they beat her before but this time Brie was pinned. You’d think it would be a disqualification win for Paige at that point but instead she got beat by Nikki. The divas division is pretty flat at the moment. Paige and Naomi have both had their title shots and lost but there isn’t anyone else you could see beating Nikki Bella at the moment. Maybe it’s time they looked to their talented women’s division in NXT? The Big Show then beat Ryback by disqualification because of an attack from The Miz. I can only see this leading to a triple threat match between the three. This wasn’t a great match and probably not the way Ryback envision his first Intercontinental Champion defence. Fully expecting a triple threat match for Battleground.
John Cena beat Kevin Owens next, it was a clean win which may or may not put an end to this feud. You’d think it would end to a gimmicked rubber match between the two, especially as Owens got his heat back after the match. A United States Championship match between the two would be good, especially as this feud derived from a United States Championship open challenge. Not sure why the title wasn’t on the line this time to be honest, considering Owens beat Cena at Elimination Chamber. Hopefully KO stays on the main roster, he has fit right in as one of the top heels in the company and his match with Cena tonight was a great one, better than their previous. The Prime Time Players then became WWE Tag Team Champions! Titus has been in the news recently as celebrity dad of the year so I think this may have something to do with that. New Day were good champions and have really found themselves recently so I expect them to be in or around the tag team title scene going forward. Not an amazing match but a great win for Titus and Darren Young. Xavier Woods takes the fall. I hope he isn’t supposed to be the “weak link” of the team.
In the main event Seth Rollins beat Dean Ambrose to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. This was a clean win for Seth without any help from anyone else. It was a close finish with both men grabbing the title but Rollins fell with the title and remains as champion. I like Seth Rollins as champion, he’s having a great reign and I’m sure at some point he’ll have matches with Kane and Roman Reigns. This was a decent main event, not the greatest ladder match ever but still a good match. I’m not sure where this leaves Dean Ambrose but he has danced in and out of the WWE title scene, Intercontinental title scene and also had a feud with Bray Wyatt so he’s an easy guy to book.
