WWE Summerslam 2016 Preview

SummerSlam 2016.jpg 

WWE's biggest event of the summer takes place this evening at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. With the return of Brock Lesnar and the crowning of a new Champion, how will the event fare? Let's take a look. By the way, I'm trying a slightly new format so let me know what you think of it.

Cesaro vs Sheamus
This match on the Kick Off Show is match 3(?) of a best of seven series. I like both guys but I don't want to see them face each other 7 matches in a row. If I remember correctly, Cesaro is 2-0 so I'm going for Sheamus to win here.
Predicted Winner: Sheamus

 Sami Zayn and Neville vs The Dudley Boyz
 The other match on the Kick Off Show involves the criminally underused Sami Zayn. Despite that, I do wonder how the Zayn/Neville team will go so I think they will win here.
Predicted Winners: Sami Zayn and Neville

American Alpha, The Usos and The Hype Bros vs Breezango, The Asecension and The Vaudevillians
Fucking hell! This must be a long Kick Off Show. Except for The Ascension, I generally like these teams. I'm going for the Alpha/Uso/Hype combo to win.
Predicted Winners: American Alpha, The Usos and The Hype Bros

Carmella, Becky Lynch and Naomi vs Natalya, Alexa Bliss and TBD
Eva Marie decided to celebrate her promotion to the main roster by getting a wellness policy violation. Hopefully Bliss and Natalya will get Nia Jax from RAW to help out. If they do, I think they will win
Predicted Winners: Natalya, Alexa Bliss and TBD

Hollywood Miz vs Apollo Crews
WWE Intercontinental Championship
A tough one to call as I really want the Miz to win. However, I believe that Crews will win here.
Predicted Winner: Apollo Crews

Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens
Another tough one to call but I think that Enzo and Cass will win.
Predicted Winners: Enzo Amore and Big Cass

Rusev vs Roman Reigns
United States Championship
I feel sorry for Rusev.  Reigns has a total dick to him and Lana yet Mick Foley rewards him with a title shot. Hopefully Rusev will make Reigns his bitch.
Predicted Winner: Rusev

The New Day vs Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson
WWE Tag Team Championships
I like The New Day but they've been Champions for about a year. It might be time for a change.
Predicted Winners: Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson

AJ Styles vs John Cena
I really want Styles to win here but I feel that Cena will win it instead.
Predicted Winner: John Cena


Sasha Banks vs Charlotte
WWE Women's Championship
I was quite surprised that Sasha win a few weeks ago. I cannot see the Championship going back to Charlotte so Sasha to win here.
Predicted Winner: Sasha Banks

Dean Ambrose vs Dolph Ziggler
WWE Championship
I'm looking forward to this one. I can't see Ziggler so Ambrose to retain here.
Predicted Winner: Dean Ambrose

Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor
WWE Universal Championship
This match is one that I'm really looking forward to. I'm a big fan of both guys and I would love to see Balor win it. However, I feel that Rollins will become the first ever Universal Champion.
Predicted Winner: Seth Rollins

Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton
I don't know why but I'm not really bothered about this match. Despite that, I feel that Brock will win.
Predicted Winner: Brock Lesnar

I won't get to see the show until Tuesday or Wednesday. Until then I hope you guys enjoy the show.

The Cruiserweight Classic: Episode 6

The second round of the Cruiserweight Classic continues in this week's episodes. With 2 amazing matches last episode, how will the ones in this episode fare? Let's take a look.

Akira Tozowa (Japan) vs Jack Gallagher (England)
I was interested in this one as I enjoyed their 1st round matches. There was a great bit where Gallagher uses Tozowa's limbs to tie him up. Gallagher goes on to attack Tozowa's lower body. Tozowa does get back into it and gets the win after a bridging German suplex. I'm gutted that Gallagher lost but Tozowa winning is the right decision and he will face Gran Metalik in the quarter finals.

Noam Dar (Scotland) vs Hoho Lun (Hong Kong)
Dar uses moves such as a reverse Indian deathlock and, despite Lun's best efforts, he submits to a kneebar for Dar to get the win. The match wasn't bad but compared to the other matches that we've seen, it wasn't very good. However, my totally biased pick is through to the quarter finals.

The Brian Kendrick (USA) vs Tony Nese (USA)
It doesn't start well for Kendrick as Nese starts to knee the fuck out of him. Kendrick takes advantage of a missed moonsault and applies an armbar. Nese hits a brutal buckle bomb but in the end, he misses a 450 splash and Kendrick puts on the bully choke to get the win. Another good match by both guys.

This was another good episode. Dar vs Lun was an ok match but considering we had possible match of the year last episode, it was going to hard to top that. Next week, we get to see Zack Sabre Jr, so hopefully we will have 2 British wrestlers in the quarter finals.

The Cruiserweight Classic: Episode 5

The second round of the Cruiserweight Classic kicks off in this episode, which aired on Wednesday 10th August. Apologies for being a bit behind on this but I hope to catch up by Summerslam.

Tajiri (Japan) vs Gran Metalik (Mexico)
I was looking forward to this one as I could see both of these guys winning. The match went at a fast pace for most of it and it was so fun to watch. In a surprise win, Metalik manages to get the win after avoiding a buzzsaw kick to hit the Metalik driver. This match was awesome to watch and a great way to start the 2nd round.

Kota Ibushi (Japan) vs Cedric Alexander (USA)
This match went back and forth with some amazing high flying moves. Alexander gets the advantage after avoiding a moonsault then hitting one of his own. Ibishi gets back into it after a brutal dropkick. After some more back and forth, Alexander hits a brainbuster for 2 then immediately kicks him in the head and Ibushi kicks out at 2.9. Ibushi eventually gets the win after hitting a golden star powerbomb. This was another amazing match to watch and I thought that Alexander had won it a couple of times. Alas, it was not to be and Ibushi advances to the quarter finals.

This was an awesome episode involving a candidate for match of the year. Next week, we get to see Akira Tozowa vs Jack Gallagher and I hope that match will be just as good.

The Cruiserweight Classic: Episode 4

The fourth episode of the Cruiserweight Classic took place last week and we got to see the last few matches of the first round. We will get to see the other two British wrestlers have their matches plus two tag team partners will be facing each other. Let's take a look.

Rich Swann (USA) vs Jason Lee (Hong Kong)
I've seen Swann a couple of times in NXT and I've been quite impressed with him. Swann obviously had the support of the Full Sail crowd but Lee did some impressive martial arts moves. Swann gets the win after an awesome standing 450 splash. This was an entertaining match and I'm looking to seeing Swann again in the next round.

Noam Dar (Scotland) vs Gurv Sihra (India)
Being Scottish, I am going to be biased as fuck and hope that Dar wins here. Sihra, on the other hand, wanted to do better than his brother did. Dar gets the win after doing a fisherman suplex transitioning into a knee bar. This was a good match and Dar will face Hono Lun in the next round.

Jack Gallagher (England) vs Fabien Aichner (Italy)
I was interested in this one due to Gallagher's gimmick, which reminded me a little bit of William Regal. Aichenr, being 40lbs heavier, tried to use that and his pwer to his advantage. Aichner comes close after a  double springboard moonsault. However, Gallagher gets the win after hitting a brutal dropkick in the corner. Great win for Gallagher and this means that all the British wrestlers have advanced to the second round. It's a shame that Gallagher is going to get fucking destroyed by Akira Tozowa in the next round.

Johnny Gargano (USA) vs Tommaso Ciampa (USA)
Whilst there has been some really good matches in the first round, this was the one that I was the most hinterested in. Gargano and Ciampa are a tag team in NXT and their pre-match interview suggests that there will no love ost here. Ciampa proceeds to seriously brutalise his tag team partner. Gargano gets to retun some of the favour later on, but Ciampa hits a white noise on the apron to get a very close nearfall. He then hits a powerbomb into a back stabber but Gargano again kicks out. After a flurry of reversals, Gargano gets the win with a crucifix pin. Afterwards, in a touching moment, they hug and shake hands. This was definitely the match of the night just on the emotion alone but I feel that it would have been better if they faced each other later on in the tournament.

The first round is now over and I've really enjoyed it so far. I'm sure that the second round will continue in that vein, espcially with matches such as Gallagher vs Tozowa in the next episode.

The Cruiserweight Classic: Episode 3

The third episode of the Cruiserweight Classic was shown on Wednesday 27th July. The first two episodes have been entertaining so far so let's hope it continues

Tyson Dux (Canada) vs Zack Saber Jr (England)
I was looking forward to this as we get to see the first Brit in the competition. It was a very slow paced match but I was impressed by the way Saber was getting out of holds. Saber get s the win after applying the uber platter. I was impressed by both guys and I'll be looking out for Saber if he's ever in my area.

Drew Gulak (USA) vs Harv Sihra  (India)
Gulak is a submission specialist but he looks like to employ a brutal offence as he hits Sihra with some hard hitting moves. Gulak gets Sihra to submit thanks to a dragon sleeper with body scissors. I enjoyed this match between the two and I'm looking forward to Gulak and Saber in the next round.

Anthony Bennett (USA) vs Tony Nese (USA)
This was an interesting one to watch as Bennett is almost 50lbs lighter than Nese, which is unusual to see such a large weight difference in a cruiserweight match. Nese proceeds to throw Bennett round like a rag doll; and he wins after hitting a pumphandle slam followed by a 450 splash. This was a good match tho, whilst understandable, the referee checking on Bennett after he got hit by the pumphandle slam did slow it down a bit.

Raul Mendoza (Mexico) vs The Brian Kendrick (USA)
This match was very fast paced to begin with before Kendrick gets the advantage. Mendoza gets back into it, after hitting an awesome corkscrew suicide dive. However, it was not enough as Kendrick gets him to submit to a bully choke to get the win. I really enjoyed this match and hopefully we will see Mendoza in a WWE ring again.

This was another good episode and the next episode will feature another Brit, Jack Gallagher, who looks interesting. Sorry for the delay with this episode. I hope to put up Episode 4 over the weekend.

WWE Battleground 2016 Review

WWE Battleground took place at the Verizon Center in Washington DC last Sunday. Battleground is normally not a great PPV; however, the card looks good here. Let's take a look.

The match on the Kick Off Show is The Usos taking on Brezzdango. In a short match, Brezzdango gets the win after Breeze stops a splash by Jimmy Uso. Breeze then puts Jimmy in a small package to get the win. It was a decent match but it felt that it was too short.
Winners: Breezdango (0 for 1)

The first match on the show was Charlotte and Dana Brooke taking on Sasha Banks and a mystery partner, who turns out to be Bayley. It looked like Cahrlotte and Dana would win it as they would shut down any momentum built up by Sasha and Bayley. After a back and forth match, sasha gets Charlotte to submit to the Banks Statement to get the win. This was an enjoyable match and it was so good to see Bayle make her main roster debut.
Winners: Sasha Banks and Bayley (1 for 2)

Next was The New Day facing The Wyatt Family. I was interested in this because of what was happening in The New Day. They were making jokes while Xavier Woods was taking it seriously and fearing the Wyatts. In the match, the Wyatts are dominant on Kofi before Big E gets the hot tag. In the end, Woods overcomes worries and takes on the Wyatts. However, he gets a Sister Abigail from Bray for the Wyatts to get the win. It was a good match but the brand split means that this feud will end too soon.
Winners: The Wyatt Family (2 for3)

Next is Zack Ryder challenging Rusev for the United States Championship. Ryder comes close to winning it after hitting a RoughRyder. However, Rusev manages to fold Ryder in half while applying the Accolade to get the win. Afterwards, Mojo Rawley comes out to stop Rusev continuing his assault on Ryder. This was a good match and it will be interesting to see how the Hype Bros do on Smackdown.
Winner: Rusev (3 for 4)


Now one match that I was looking forward to: Sami Zayn versus Kevin Owens. This match was as good as I expected it to be with one of the highlights being Zayn hitting Owens with a brainbuster on the apron. Owens goes on to survive 2 exploder suplexes before reversing a helluva kick to hit a pop up powerbomb for 2. In the end, Sami hit 2 exploder suplexes followed by 2 helluva kicks to get the win. This was probably the best match between the two of them. It's a shame that it's the end of this feud but with both guys on RAW, I suspect that it will be reignited at some point.
Winner: Sami Zayn (4 for 5)

The next match was Natalya taking on Becky Lynch. During the match, Natalya gets to focus on Becky's leg and, despite a brief fightback, gets the win with the sharpshooter. This was a goodmatc between the two. Shame it followed the Owesn/Zayn match.
Winner: Natalya (5 for 6)

We now get Darren Young challenging Hollywood Miz for the Intercontinental Championship. The match was going pretty well until it went off in a weird direction. Maryse slaps Backlund then tells Miz that she got hit by Backlund. Miz then pushes him to the floor and Young puts Miz in the cross faced chickenwing and the bell rings. I think it was a double disqualification tho I don't really get why.  It was a shitty ending to what is starting to become a good match.
Winner: None (5 for 7)

The next match was AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson taking on the team John Cena, Enzo Amore and Big Cass. The Club focus their attack before he gets the hot tag to Cena. After very close near falls, Cena hits Styles with an AA from the top rope to get the win. This was an entertaining match and I look forward to seeing The Club and Enzo and Cass fight each other on RAW.
Winners: John Cena, Enzo Amore and Big Cass (6 for 8)

After a special edition of Jericho's Highlight Reel featuring the return of Randy Orton, we get the main event that has been over 2 years in the making: Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns challenging Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Championship. Highlights of the match include: Ambrose diving from the announce tables into his opponents in the timekeeper's area; Reigns hitting them both with a Superman punch; and Rollins and Ambrose working together to powerbomb Reigns through the Spanish announce table.Rollins comes close to winning after hitting a superplex into a falcon arrow. In the end, Reigns hits Rollins with a spear. However, Ambrose immediately hits Reigns with Dirty Deeds to get the win. This match was so much fun to watch. It's a shame that we never get to see them in the same ring for the foreseeable future.
Winner: Dean Ambrose (7 for 9)

 I really enjoyed Battleground as there were some really good matches. It's a shame that most of the feuds that were started now have to end due to the draft. However, I'm looking forward to the future with guys like Finn Balor now on the main roster.

WWE Battleground 2016 Preview

Official poster for Battleground 2016.jpg

WWE Battleground will be taking place this evening at the Verizon Center in Washington DC. There are some really good matches on the card so I'm looking forward to this event. Let's look at the card.

The Usos will take on Breezdango on the Kick Off Show. I think that The Usos will win here.
Predicted Winners: The Usos

The New Day will be taking on The Wyatt Family in a 6 man tag team match. This is a tough one to call but I'm going for the Wyatts to win here.
Predicted Winners: The Wyatt Family

Zack Ryder will be challenging Rusev for the United States Championship. Yeah, Rusev will win this.
Predicted Winner: Rusev

Darren Young will be challenging The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship. Like the US Championship match, I expect The Miz to win here.
Predicted Winner: The Miz

The Club will face the team of Enzo, Cass and John Cena in what could be a good match. I would love The Club to win but I think that Cena and his team will win here.
Predicted Winners: Enzo, Cass and John Cena

Becky Lynch will face Natalya in what could be a good match. I'm going for Natalya to win here.
Predicted Winner: Natalya

Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens will face each other one more time. At the minute, I'm not bored of watching these two fight so I'm looking forward to it. I think that Sami will win here.
Predicted Winner: Sami Zayn

Charlotte and Dana Brooke will take on Sasha Banks and a mystery partner. I think that it could be Bayley however, I think that it's too obvious. Sasha and her partner will win here.
Predicted Winners: Sasha Banks and Mystery Partner.

The main event is one that I'm really looking forward to. Dean Ambrose will be defending his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. It's hard to believe that it's taken over two years to get to this point. I feel that Ambrose will retain here.
Predicted Winner: Dean Ambrose

I'll

The Cruiserweight Classic: Episode 2

The second episode of the Cruiserweight Classic was shown last Wednesday and we get the return of Tajiri so I was looking forward to this one. Let's look at the matches.

Tajiri (Japan) vs Damian Slater (Australia)
Slater gave Tajiri a run for his money with some brutal kicks and a tornado DDT. However, it was all in vain as Tajiri hit a buzzsaw kick to get the win. Tajiri will be facing Gran Metalik in the next round and that will be an interesting match to see.

T.J. Perkins (Phillipines) vs Da Mack (Germany)
In a back and forth match, Da Mack hit some impressive moves but Perkins hit a body scissors into a knee bar to get the win. I was slightly gutted that Perkins won but it was my favourite match of the night.

Mustafa Ali (Pakistan) vs Lince Dorado (Peurto Rico)
Ali gets the early advantage before Dorado gets back into it with moves such as a head scissors from the apron. In the end, Ali missed a reverse 450 splash and Dorado hits a shooting star press to get the win. Another impressive match with both guys hitting some amazing moves.

Akira Tozama (Japan) vs Kenneth Johnson (USA)
Another back and forth match before Tozama hit an awesome German suplex followed by a bridging German suplex to get the win. Quite a good match between the two and I was impressed with Kenneth Johnson.

So, another good episode of the Cruiserweight Classic and next week we get to see The Brian Kendrick. Come back next week for a review of that epsiode.

The Cruiserweight Classic Episode 1

The first ever episode of the Cruiserweight Classic was shown on the WWE Network on Wednesday night and this was an event that I was really looking forward to seeing. I watch very little wrestling outside the WWE so it was a chance to see some of the best wrestlers in the world outside the WWE face off. Plus a chance to see returning stars such as Tajiri and The Brian Kendrick. Let's dive into the first episode.

Ajeandro Saez (Chile) vs Gran Metalik (Mexico)
Some impressive moves by both guys such as Metalik doing a springboard into a suicide dive and Saez hitting a shooting star press from the apron to the outside. In the end, Metalik hit an awesome  fireman's carry into a fisherman's driver to get the win. Good performances by both guys and Metalik advances to the next round.

Hoho Lun (Hong Kong) vs Ariya Daivari (Iran)
Daivari was dominant for most of the match but Lun got back into and hit a German suplex into a bridge to get the win. Not as entertaining as the first match but it was good. On a side note, I found it weird that commentator Daniel Bryan was going on about jet lag for Lun. I don't think that Lun stepped off a plane straight into a match but Bryan wouldn't shut up about it.

Clement Petiot (France) vs Cedric Alexander (USA)
 Like the last match, Petiot was dominant for most of the match almost taking off Alexander's head with a brutal discus clothesline. However, Alexander hit a back suplex into a backstabber out of nowhere to get the win. A bit of an abrupt ending but another good match.

Kota Ibushi (Japan) vs Sean Maluta (American Samoa)
This was a match that I was looking forward to seeing. I had heard a lot about Ibushi but this is the first time that I wll see him wrestle. As for Maluta, I had never seen a Samoan cruiserweight before so this should be an interesting match up. I felt sorry for Maluta at one point as he hit a codebreaker from the middle rope then almost botches a somerault into a suicide dive. Later on, Ibushi hit a pelee kick, sending Maluta off the top rope followed by a dragon moonsault. Ibushi goes to get the win after a last ride sit down powerbomb. Definitely the match of the night and it goes to show why a lot of people are considering Ibushi to be the favourite.

An entertaining first show to kick off the Cruiserweight Classic and next week, we get to see the return of Tajiri so it's looking like it will be a great tournament.

WWE Money in the Bank 2016 Review

The first on the Kick Off Show was the team of The Golden Truth taking on Breezango. Due to the fact Goldust and R-Truth messing with a tanning bed, Fandango and Tyler Breeze have very sore and peeling skin. Remind me again, how are The Golden Truth faces? Anyway, Golden Truth use Breezango's injuries to their advantage, ending up with Goldust hitting the Final Cut on Fandango to get the win. This match was more of a comedy match but I didn't find it funny.
Winners: Breezango (0 for 1)

The second match on the Kick Off Show was The Lucha Dragons facing The Dudley Boyz. The Dragns get the win after Kalisto hits the Salida del Sol on Bubba Ray followed by a Dragon Bomb by Sin Cara 2.0. It was a decent match between the two. Not sure if I want a rematch tho.
Winners: The Lucha Dragons (0 for 2)

The first match of the show was a fatal 4 way match for the WEE Tag Team Championships with Enzo and Cass, The Vaudevillians and Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson challenging The New Day. Enzo and Cass thought they won it after hitting the Booms in Kofi but Gallows stopped the count. Later on, The Vaudevillians hit the whirling dervlish on Kofi but Anderson breaks up the pin. In the end, Gallows and Anderson hit the magic killer on English but Big E stopped the pin. Big Cass sends Gallows out of the ring and Kofi and Big E hit a double team move on Anderson. Jodi then pins English to get the win. I really enjoyed the match. However, this was the wed tag team match in a row so I would have liked a bit more variety at the beginning.
Winners: The New Day (0 for 3)

Next was another match between Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler. Corbin gets the win after stopping Ziggler do a top rope move then hitting end of days. I found it hard hard to get into the match probably because it was at a slow pace and I didn't really care to begin with. Anyway, it was nice to see Corbin get the win.
Winner: Baron Corbin (0 for 4)

We now get another tag team match with Charlotte and Dana Brooke taking on Natalya and Becky Lynch. Charlotte gets out into the sharpshooter by Natalya but Brooke stops it. Becky grabs Brooke and she throws Becky into Natalya. Charlotte then hits natural selection on Natalya to get the win. Afterwards Natalya beats down Becky. I thought it was a good match but a bit short. As for Brooke,this was the first time that I saw her wrestle as she was injured when I started watching NXT regularly. She wasn't bad but I feel that she was called up too early.
Winners: Charlotte and Dana Brooke (1 for 5)

Next was Sheamus facing Apollo Crews. Apollo gets the win after getting hit by a white noise from the second rope and kicking out at 2. Sheamus bitches to the referee and Apollo puts him in a crucifix pin to get the win. A decent match that was longer than than I thought it would be. As for Crews, I thought he did well in his first PPV match. I do feel that he doesn't have much of a character but I think that WWE are using his natural talent to get him over. I think that it's working but it can only go so far.
Winner: Apollo Crews (2 for 6)

Now a match that I'm really looking forward to: AJ Styles versus John Cena. Styles has the advantage for the early part of the match, using his speed and managing to counter whether Cena would throw at him. Cena has the chance to capitalise when he avoids a suicide dive and gets to apply the STF. Later on, Styles gets out of the AA to apply the calf crusher but Cena gets to the ropes. Both guys hit their finishing moves but the other kicks out. After a shitty ref bump, Cena hits the AA but there's no ref. Gallows and Anderson then pay a visit and hit Cena with the magic killer. They then put Styles over Cena and he wins. I really enjoyed the match and it would have been nice if Styles had won clean. However, that rarely happens with Cena and it makes sense to do it to bed in Styles' heel turn.

Winner: AJ Styles (3 for 7)

Next is probably the most open Money in the Bank ladder match ever with Alberto Del Rio, Cesaro, Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn taking part. Highlights of the match include: Zayn hitting an over the top suicide dive; Cesaro doing numerous European uppercuts to Del Rio, Jericho and Ambrose before Owens hits him with a superkick followed by throwing him head first into a ladder; Del Rio pulling Owens off the ladder into a backstabber;  Ceasro doing a giant swing on Jericho then swinging him into a ladder; and Zayn hitting Owens with a Michinoku driver onto a ladder. In the end, a ladder bridge is created and Owens powerbombs Zayn onto it then climbs the ladder. Ambrose stops him and gets him off the ladder then grabs the briefcase to win the match. This was a really enjoyable match and even though I predicted Owens to win, I was happy with Ambrose winning. I thought he might be one of those guys who everyone but the WWE would love to see as Champion. At the minute, it looks like I was wrong.
Winner: Dean Ambrose (3 for 8)

Next is Titus O'Neil challenging Rusev for the United States Championship. As expected, despite a brief flurry by Titus, Rusev gets the win after applying the Accolade. Afterwards, Rusev, because he's a dick, then mocked Titus in front of his children at ringside. The match was ok but nothing special. 
Winner: Rusev (4 for 9)

The main event is for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship as Seth Rollins challenges Roman Reigns. In the early stages, Reigns displays some heelish behaviour, which is unusual considering he's technically the face. Reigns hits a beautiful crucifix into a sit down powerbomb but Rollins gets back into it after avoiding a Superman punch and sending Reigns into the turnbuckle. Rollins goes on to hit moves like a frogsplash, a turnbuckle powerbomb and an awesome move when did a superplex straight into a falcon arrow. In the end, Rollins almost wins it after countering a spear into a pedigree. He then hits another pedigree to get the win. I enjoyed this match and Reigns had another good match. I was surprised that Rollins won but I'm glad he did.
Winner: Seth Rollins (4 for 10)

 Rollins' celebrations turn out to be short lived as Dean Ambrose's music hit. Rollins expects him to come down the aisle but he comes in from behind and hits Rollins with the briefcase. Ambrose then cashes in, hits dirty deeds on Rollins and becomes the new WWE World Heavyweight Championship. I really enjoyed this cash in and it's nice to see Ambrose with the belt. Hopefully he will have a good run with it.
Winner: Dean Ambrose (N/A)

I thought that Money in the Bank was a bit of a mixed bag. There were some really good matches with some great moments, such as the cash in. However, there were some matches that did nothing for me and hopefully we will see less of them in the next event.
