Last Chance Money In The Bank Qualifying Battle Royal
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. R-Truth vs. Rey Mysterio vs. AJ Styles vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Ciampa vs. Akira Tozawa vs. Ricochet vs. Jinder Mahal vs. Mustafa Ali vs. T-BAR vs. Shanky vs. Riddle vs. Veer Mahaan vs. Dominik Mysterio vs. Reggie

A battle Royal with the worst in ring design ever. The ladders were just pointless and so overdone here. Some cool moments, a few quick team ups, and a cool moment with Mia and Riddle. Wasn’t anything special though and 2 commercial breaks during it made it even more prolonged. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Jey Uso (w/Jimmy Uso) vs. Montez Ford (w/Angelo Dawkins)

A very competent singles match. Ford really shows his skills in singles and Jey is known for handling his own in singles. A clean win here helps Usos keep their belts at MITB. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
AJ Styles vs. The Miz

Really good until that finish. The walkout heel finish is always dumb but will lead to another match. Moved along at a good pace and Styles played it a bit more aggressive here. Wouldn’t expect anything bad from these two together though.

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Alexa Bliss vs. Liv Morgan

A short evenly booked match with Alexa and Liv. Was fine really but just uneventful and the crowd didn’t care at all. 

2 / 5

Two On One Handicap Match (Special Enforcer: Theory)
Bobby Lashley vs. Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis)

Lashley sold most the match before he got his second wind to pick the win up. Outside of a few power moves this wasn’t really anything great and continues a feud that I couldn’t care less about. 

2 / 5

Last Chance Money In The Bank Qualifying Six Pack Elimination Match
Becky Lynch vs. Tamina vs. Nikki ASH vs. Doudrop vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Xia Li

This was fine but just a lot fit into a small time frame. The end was rushed with some spots not looking great. Becky was clearly the only one who had a chance too. Nothing bad but just nothing memorable. 

2 / 5
