Styles, Owens, Nakamura, Ziggler and more – the stars of SmackDown battle in ladder matches for a shot at the world championship. Join us for all the action!
Trying to figure out how to bide your time before Roman Reigns makes his big SummerSlam announcement this Monday on RAW? Why not watch – I dunno – Money in the freakin’ Bank!
All the matches for “momentum” are no more! It’s M-I-T-B time, as United States champ Kevin Owens, AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, and Dolph Ziggler all try to climb that ladder to grab a briefcase containing a world title shot.
This year though, for the first time, the women’s division is getting in on the carnage as Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Taimina, Natalya, and Carmella will all attempt to bag and tag a briefcase of their own. Is there room, perhaps, for a mystery sixth participant? We’ll have to see.
First of all, these are the only “Hype(rion) Bros” I want to see…
Yeah, not a fan of Mojo and Zack and their boundless energy. They’re exhausting. It is funny though how much Mojo was thrashing Jinder Mahal a few months ago, even at WrestleMania, and now he’s got nothing to show for that Andre Battle Royal win except for a return to the tag team ranks.
I also hoped for more from Epico and Primo when they shifted over to SmackDown, but they’re still pretty nondescript. At least they got to drop the shady time share gimmick. Though I still wish creative had followed all the way through with that, taken us to the resort, and revealed it to be pure paradise. SWERVE!
Nothing special about this opener really. It got the Hype Bros back into their groove and put a few smiles on faces.
