WWE “Money In The Bank” (07.02.2022) (Wrestling Review)


Money In The Bank

Las Vegas, Nevada 

July 2nd, 2022


Money In The Bank Ladder Match
Becky Lynch vs. Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Liv Morgan vs. Shotzi vs. Lacey Evans vs. Raquel Rodriguez

A really fun womens MITB match. A lot of good spots from everyone and the crowd was into it. Some close calls so it really made it seem like there was a few choices to win. There were a fair amount of sloppy moments. I won’t mark them all up to it as some could be on the ladder too but Shotzi seemed to be heavily botchy for some reason here. The winner though not only got a massive pop but deserved this win. 

3.5 / 5

WWE United States Title Match
Theory (c) vs. Bobby Lashley

A good match that had Theory taking on a good deal of offense after running a lot of the beginning. Theory came off looking good here and like a credible threat with some close calls. I thought they’d keep the belt on him a bit longer but once Lashley had his finisher in that was it. 

3 / 5

WWE RAW Women’s Title Match
Bianca Belair (c) vs. Carmella

A quicker match where it was clear Carmella wasn’t winning. Belair is still over and looking dominate. This was just a typical filler match almost and nothing you wouldn’t forget about from a Raw episode. 

1.5 / 5

WWE RAW Tag Team Title / WWE SmackDown Tag Team Title Match
The Usos (Jey Uso & Jimmy Uso) (c) vs. The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford)

A solid tag team match here. Both teams are really good against each other and showed it here. It just didn’t always feel like anything special though. Its no fault on them but the tag division in WWE is just so lacking that repeat face ups start to feel fatigued. Mix that in with there being no chance here the Usos lost and it just didn’t fully hit it for me. Still a really good match that should be watched though. 

3.5 / 5

WWE SmackDown Women’s Title Match
Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Natalya

It had a good in ring story but man this wasn’t a good match. The crowd wasn’t behind it, it was technical but not in an interesting way, and really neither of them are exactly the most liked by crowds. I will say, unrelated to the ranking. Liv cashing in was a great feel good moment. 

2 / 5

Money In The Bank Ladder Match
Sami Zayn vs. Seth Rollins vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Madcap Moss vs. Riddle vs. Theory vs. Omos

A very competent mens money in the bank match. Everyone played it a bit on the safe side. Kept some in ring stories like everyone teaming up on Omos. It just felt unimportant at times. When you have guys like Rollins involved and he’s just another body most of the time it just feels off. Everyone did their part though and it had some good spots. I get Theory winning but also realistically he is no contender for the main title with who else is at it right now.
