THE DEBATE: Money in the Bank 2020
Friends of Spazio Wrestling, found well in this new issue of THE DEBATE. The undersigned and Ayrton Molinaro will analyze the latest WWE PPV or Money In The Bank tonight. Let’s start right away:
Well, I definitely selected Drew McIntyre against Seth Rollins as the best match in this Money In The Bank. Drew is really doing a great job as a WWE champion and tonight he reaffirmed that he was in a state of grace. The Scottish performance is excellent. The same verdict also applies to Seth Rollins: He remains one of the best in the world on the course and has shown it again to Money In The Bank. In this new figure of the “Messiah” she was very well received, but the last handshake between the two leaves the door open to different and interesting hypotheses for both figures.
There is little to discuss about the worst game in this Money In The Bank: Bobby Lashley against R-Truth was certainly there. It was a squash that gave Lashley victory after a few minutes. It would be interesting if the latter became part of the much-rumored MVP stable, but obviously there is always the unknown. And what a stranger …
-I had been hoping for this since I qualified for the match. When I returned from AJ Styles, I almost resigned, although there was little hope left. And in the end, WWE surprised me very much and made Otis win the money in the bank. As much as I love this damn character, the company has been pointing at it for months and it seems that it is really building a future main eventer that is different from the others. The end of the game was very controversial, now an infinite number of interesting scenarios can be created. WWE however, I think it hit the target by giving Otis the briefcase, the character of the moment.
-We know very well that it was a full-fledged short film, but when I saw Baron Corbin Rey Mysterio and Aleister Black fly off the roof, I was really shocked. It was one of the many good moments that the two Money In The Bank games gave us!
-I burst out laughing when all of the Money In The Bank game participants were in front of a set table and Paul Heyman, who was then “bullied” by Otis, who tossed him a lot of food. A really exciting moment.
– Really nice and right at the end of the game between Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt. The champion seems to give in to Bray’s mind games so much that he wears the sheep mask and then even hugs his challenger. But in fact, at that moment, Braun got rid of the past he had with Bray and Wyatt Family, Powerslam is coming, and everyone at home. One way to close this first chapter of the feud between the two well-studied, but as mentioned, we’re just beginning. Now there is the fiend!
-How can’t we mention John Morrison’s fantastic Spanish bow tie on gran metal outside the ring? A maneuver that I personally love and that Morrison always does best, but this time it’s really over. That being said, the match for the smackdown pair titles was of the highest quality and started the show as best as possible.
-Why did Jeff Hardy landed against Cesaro (match that was really nice) in KickOff and Bobby Lashley against R-Truth instead on the main map? I will never understand these WWE decisions, but that’s okay …
2 hours of PPV that really amused me. Right duration, fairly good show quality, lots of surprises and what more could be asked for during this time. Drew vs. Seth should make it clear to WWE that it is no longer necessary to give the part-time workers maximum titles. I hope that there will be more title matches of this kind in the future. Braun vs Bray well written, I wasn’t expecting who knows about the fights, but the feud had to continue in the right way and it was. Bayley versus Tamina, in my opinion, had good storytelling that holds the champion and now we hope the time has come for Sasha Banks. Fatal 4-way that ignited me, it was a sparkling meeting that started the dance in the best way. And then the icing on the cake with Asuka and the popular Otis as winners of the two briefcases. Good WWE, you hit the big brand!
Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre. Finally a top match for the WWE title. At Wrestlemania we witnessed a 3 minute match and instead we had a very intense competition this time between two of the best performers at WWE. Drew’s win was just right in my opinion to strengthen his position and his last handshake, which really seemed out of the script, but very real.
R-Truth vs. Bobby Lashley. In addition to the match that didn’t help over the course of the show, I can’t understand why Bobby Lashley got into this squash limbo against ordinary athletes and jobbers against more well-known athletes. As big as he is, he should be an absolute ruler, one with a WWE title and always have the expression of a sufferer instead. I don’t know how long it can take for the bandage if you don’t wake up. I hope that he can finally speak with MVP as manager.
-German Suplex from McIntyre on Rollins. It would be really reducing to express the spectacularity of the spot in words. Too bad that there is still no public because they have torn down the building.
-Strowman reappears with the black sheep mask. Completely unexpected and that left me speechless. When he knelt at all and then hugged Wyatt, I was incredulous. When Wyatt is involved, the storytelling of the games reaches a very high level.
-Otis who wins the briefcase. A place that has already been seen in Wrestlemania and where two athletes win the final price together. This is even more absurd because, in theory, Styles should have won it since it stayed in his hand for a moment before it fell into Otis’ arms. And then I generally disagree with Otis’ win because what will Tucker do now? And then I think it was the right time to start a super athlete like Aleister Black, and instead the super athlete threw him out of the building with Rey Mysterio.
In general, I have to say that it was one of the most beautiful PPVs of the year, even if it was short, it was pleasant to look at and with some really interesting spots. The match for the two briefcases was fun. Many of you won’t agree because it wasn’t wrestling, but I found it interesting and, as I said, funny. Maybe we’re seeing the birth of a new era in the WWE, I don’t know it’s too early to say, but surely something is changing.
