The Hype Bros vs. The Colons
Zack Ryder opens up the match with some “Woo Woo Woos.” Ryder takes down Primo with a dropkick. Mojo gets the tag. Primo beats him into the corner, but Mojo fights back hard. “He ain’t hyped,” says Mojo to the crowd.
Ryder gets the tag once again. Primo exits the ring and Zack capitalizes with a big time sliding dropkick to both his opponents. But then Epico grabs Zack’s legs and Primo capitalizes and takes down “The Long Island Iced Z” as we go the break.
We’re back from the break and The Colons are kicking ass. Ryder tries to rally back, but gets slammed back to the mat by Epico.
Primo continues the assault. The Colon cousin is currently dissecting this bro.
Ryder counters a suplex and tags in Mojo who comes in like a bolt of lightning. Mojo is kicking ass. The Colons try their best to turn the tide. But a Hype-Ryder is all that’s needed to end this one.

First-ever Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match (winner receives a contract for a match anytime for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship): Carmella vs. Tamina Snuka vs. Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch
The ladies really pulled off all the stops in this opening match-up. The crowd chanted “This is awesome” and “Holy Sh*t” multiple times in this match. Nattie was absolutely dangerous with ladders. Tamina looked like she was finally going to win the big one. Towards the end, Charlotte soared through the air onto her opponents like an acrobat.
Becky Lynch appeared prime for victory as she drops Carmella with a sick powerbomb. But then “The Chinless Wonder” James Ellsworth came out of nowhere and dumped over the ladder. Ellsworth climbed the ladder and unhooked the briefcase. He dropped it down to “The Princess of Staten Island” Carmella.
Carmella is the first ever Ms. Money In The Bank

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship match: The Usos (c) vs. The New Day
I felt the energy in the air as The Usos made their entrance and I realized that I underestimated the champions on the prediction page. The Usos dissected Kofi Kingston at the start of the match. The game looked all in favor of The Usos. But Big E rallies back and kicks some serious booty.
The Usos truly looked vicious in this match. But The New Day had that “Rocky spirit” to fight back against an opposing challenge.
Kofi even recovers and takes to the air and flies back-first onto his opponents. Woods even got involved, playing his green trumpet on the ring apron.
The New Day start kicking booty and The Usos don’t want to continue being violated. They also prefer to keep their titles for another night.
The New Day defeats The Usos by countout
WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship: Naomi (c) vs. Lana
Naomi went on the attack first, but Lana regains control. Lana has some surprising offense from the early on, dominating the champion. And “The Ravishing Russian” doesn’t have to rely on any cheap tricks like a typical heel.
“Ms. Money In The Bank” Carmella comes down to the ring with her boo Ellsworth. She might just interject herself into the match. But no…she’ll wait.
Lana is distracted and tries to put away Naomi, but gets trapped in a sick submission.

Maria Kanellis returns to WWE with her husband Michael Kannellis (formerly Michael Bennett)
“The First Lady of Professional Wrestling” Maria Kanellis is back! And her husband Michael Bennett…I mean Kannellis is by her side. They’re here to teach the WWE Universe. Mr. Kannellis’ character appears a lot different than when he was “The Miracle” Michael Bennett in TNA iMPACT! Wrestling.
WWE World Championship: Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Randy Orton
Orton gains control at the start of this contest. Randy tackles Jinder and sends out a series of strikes to the champion The Viper drops Mahal with a big clothesline over the top rope. Mahal regroups at ringside.
Randy is beating up Jinder at ringside, smacking the champ’s head on the announcer’s table. They return to the ring and Orton attempts a draping DDT. The Singh Brothers distract Orton, and Mahal capitalizes.
Jinder “The Maharaja” Mahal gains control and works on Randy’s knee. Mahal sends Orton flying into the ringsteps.
Towards the end, Randy regains control and is about to put away Jinder, but the Singh Brothers’ put Jinder’s foot on the lower rope. They break up the pinfall. The referee tells them to get out of there. But The Singh Brothers just won’t listen.
The Singh Brothers target Randy’s dad Bob Orton sitting at ringside. They grab him by his shirt, but Randy intervenes and beats the living sh*t out of both of Mahal’s hencemen. When Randy returns to the ring, he’s welcomed to a Khallas by the hands of the modern day maharaja.

The Fashion Police vs. The Ascension
The Ascension dominate for most of this match. Konnor and Viktor tried to dissect Tyler Breeze. When Fandango got the tag, the Fashion Police regained control. But still, the Ascension over come he po po and look primed for victory until Fandango roles up Viktor for the win.
The Fashion Police defeat The Ascension
Money In The Bank ladder match (winner receives a contract for a match anytime for the WWE World Championship): Baron Corbin vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. AJ Styles
Baron Corbin takes out Shinsuke Nakamura during his entrance, and I immediately regret not picking Corbin for my predictions article.
This match was absolutely insane. Owens and Zayn traded sick bumps. Zayn even sent Ziggler sailing with a powerbomb from the ladder. Corbin looked primed for victory, but then Nakamura returned!
Shinsuke took Corbin out and then dueled shots with AJ Styles. Nakamura and Styles have an epic showdown, but then out of the shadows comes Baron Corbin who knocks both men off the ladder. Corbin climbs the ladder and secures that briefcase.
Baron Corbin is the new Mr. Money In The Bank
