WWE Money In The Bank Bayley

Tiffany checks in on WWE Money In The Bank 2019 as Bayley and Brock Lesnar leave Hartford the big winners. How did Tiffany take MITB?

It’s one of the most momentous nights of the year! Sixteen superstars have the chance to stamp their ticket to the top in the Men’s and Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match!

WWE Universal Championship: Could someone tell me why that match wasn’t saved for SummerSlam?! Rollins vs Styles has been a longed for dream match, but the build has been a little…lacking, but it was a FABULOUS match that should’ve been the main event of a Big Four show, not Money in the Bank.

I did love the show of respect between Styles and Rollins. This match was refreshing because they kept it as a dream match instead of manufacturing a grudge between them. Styles was the heel, but it wasn’t a personal thing and they still respected each other. Next contestant.

WWE Championship: Well, it looks like Kofi’s moment is going to last a little longer. Kevin Owens did EVERYTHING he could think of to take the title off of Kingston, but Kingston withstood all of it and it took one moment and Kevin Owens was pinned for the three count. The feel good moment lives on.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship: This was an okay match, but it wasn’t great, which is a shame since it was the first time the Cruiserweight Championship had been on the main card in a very long time. I honestly thought WWE was going to have Daivari win and defend it at Super Show Down in Saudi Arabia, so as to have a champion of Arabic descent on the card, but I guess we’ll have to see, maybe Daivari will get another chance.

WWE United States Championship: I don’t know just WHY WWE insists on keeping the matches between Joe and Rey so short, but it’s becoming a thing. This match was squirrelly. Rey Mysterio is the New United States Champion and a Grand Slam Winner, but Joe, with a nasty cut under his eye and a possible broken nose, clearly had his shoulder up at three. Joe attacking Rey is actually understandable, but it’s looking more like 22 year old Dominick is going to have to cover for his dad.

Women’s Championships: I actually had a very long, profanity-filled rant typed up about how this whole thing went down, but thankfully it wasn’t needed. I don’t have a problem with Charlotte as a person or as a performer, but I do have a problem with her constantly being in the title picture, either as the champion or as a contender because it suffocates the division. Yes, Daddy Ric Flair was a 16-time World Champion, but those reigns were spread out over a career of over thirty years, not stuffed into a four year Main Roster run.

Bayley cashing in and becoming the first Grand Slam Champion of the Women’s Division and NOT Charlotte was a stroke of genius. Bayley has been NXT Women’s Champion, RAW Women’s Champion, Women’s Tag Champion, and SmackDown Women’s Champion. I’m still disappointed that Becky 2 Belts didn’t get a longer run, but I’m not going to argue with Bayley being champ instead.

Shane McMahon vs Miz – Steel Cage Match: I’m puzzled by this match. It was okay, but it felt like no one knew what was going on or what the rules were. Shane won, but more by accident than design when he slid out of his shirt, that Miz was trying to use to pull him back into the cage, and fell to the floor. It wasn’t a satisfying end to this feud, it was an odd one, but not satisfying.

Roman Reigns vs Elias: I had really hoped something constructive was going to come out of this squash, but that was not to be. Elias did the classic villain thing of wasting time because he thought the hero was down and out only to get his ass kicked by the enraged hero. Reigns powered through a backstage El Kabong to squash Elias like a bug in less than five minutes. That happened.

Lars Sullivan and Lucha House Party: I know a lot is going to be said about this and while I don’t agree that WWE was playing up the revelation that Lars Sullivan made a lot of racist, sexist, and generally shitty comments in the past, I do think it was really bad optics to have him beat up three Hispanic wrestlers.

Daniel Bryan and Erik Rowan vs The Usos: This wild card is confusing me. The Usos, who are on RAW, had a title match against the SmackDown tag team champions that got turned into a non-title match that the Usos won and became the #1 Contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship in a clean win. Did I miss something? Why don’t we just redo the Shakeup and call it ‘Trader’s Remorse’ or something.

Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: That end was bullshit and every guy in that match other than the winner deserved so much better.

Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: YES! Bayley is here to save us! I really thought Mandy Rose and Sonya were going to steal one but Bayley saved the day! Seriously, I was so happy for Bayley. She’s been used very badly for a good chunk of her main roster run. Having her win and getting that moment was wonderful and a great feel good moment.

Overall Thoughts: So, how was Money in the Bank 2019? Other than that ending, which I will NOT being discussing here, you do NOT want my opinion right now, it was a really good show. There were a lot of surprising and feel good moments to be had. I loved how the Women’s Championship marathon played out. I’m disappointed Becky wasn’t given a longer run as a double champ, but Bayley as SmackDown Women’s Champ is the breath of fresh air the division needs.

The end was bullshit and a disgrace. That’s all I’m going to say. That’s it for Tiffany’s Takes. I’ll be back tomorrow with my RAW takes!
