Kickoff Show:

Renee Young signs in as the new host of the Kickoff Show with Booker T, Alex Riley and Christian on the All-Star panel with Todd Phillips taking over duties as the Social Media host. Definitely looks as if Christian is officially ruled out as Bad News Barrett’s replacement (if indeed, he is replaced). Renee Young officially ruled out of his Money In The Bank ladder match but no replacement was announced.

Daniel Bryan entered the arena to a massive reaction and prolonged “Daniel Bryan” and “YES!” chants as he waited in the ring for an interview with Michael Cole. Bryan revealed that he doesn’t know when he’ll be back as the strength in his arm hasn’t returned to his right arm. He does believe that he will be able to wrestle in the future. Bryan also revealed that The Authority didn’t let him know he was stripped of the titles until he watched it on RAW. Cue Bo Dallas and an inspiration speech for Daniel Bryan. It didn’t go so well as Bryan said that Dallas was acting more like a “Bo-Ner” (& there’s Bo Dallas new chant). Then he asked him to “Bo-Leave”, ending the segment and the Kickoff Show.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos (c) vs The Wyatt Family (Erick Rowan & Luke Harper)

Luke Harper and Erick Rowan come out to yet ANOTHER version of “His Got The Whole World In His Hands” featuring a little kid singing followed by an electric guitar version of the church anthem. Pretty much the complete opposite than what they had on RAW but just as bad. Usos take the early advantage until Rowan catches Jey Uso off guard and tosses him from the top rope to the barricade. The Wyatts hold the advantage until Jimmy gets the hot tag and starts hitting the signature Uso offense. Harper comes back with a devastating sit-down powerbomb but only got a two. He follows that up with two plancas to each Uso separately. The Wyatts hit a double-team “Sky High” slam but Jey Uso made the save in a long two count. Harper misses a boot, crotches himself on the top rope. Erick Rowan climbs to the top rope but is caught with a double suplex and then two Uso top rope splash to retain their titles.

Winners and still WWE Tag Team Champions: The Usos

 

WWE Divas Championship Match: Paige (c) vs Naomi (w/Cameron)

Both women start out frantic but it isn’t until Naomi hits a crossbody to the outside that things really picked up. She just flattened Paige on the floor! Some basic Diva offense until Paige attempts a superplex that goes wrong when her foot slips sending Paige and Naomi straight to the floor in a big botch. Both Divas get back in the ring before the count of ten and while Naomi controlled the match, Paige reversed the momentum out of nowhere and hits a beautiful lifting DDT for the clean win. Cameron looked happy at ringside that Naomi lost.

Winner and still WWE Divas Champion: Paige

 

 Paul Revere (Damien Sandow) vs Adam Rose

Sandow comes down in full Colonial gear and cuts an anti-Boston promo before Adam Rose & the Rosebuds interrupt the promo with their usual antics. The crowd hummed Rose’s music throughout the beginning of the match until Revere took over (seriously). Revere even set up his signature elbow with “The elbow is coming! The elbow is coming!” Revere actually seemed to be working his way to a victory but went for a moonsault (which he missed) and lost to Rose’s Party Foul finisher.

Winner: Adam Rose

 

 Money In The Bank Contract Ladder Match: Seth Rollins vs Jack Swagger vs Dean Ambrose vs Kofi Kingston vs Rob Van Dam vs Dolph Ziggler

Well Jack Swagger already eliminated Bad News Barrett from this match so maybe Dolph Ziggler IS safe tonight. Ambrose entered last and immediately brawls with Rollins to ringside. Kofi Kingston has the first highlight of Money In The Bank when being tipped off the ladder, he springboards off the top rope and onto the superstars on the floor. In a strange twist, RVD is the one taking the ladder shots and the high risk moves including rolling sentons onto the ladder and an early Five Star Frogsplash. He rounds out the night when Swagger powerbombs him off the top of the ladder. Of course this is topped by Dean Ambrose superplexing Rollins off the top of a 15 foot tall ladder. I’m shocked Ambrose doesn’t have a broken neck after that spot. Ambrose was then pulled off the top of the ladder by Swagger but countered the move into a DDT. Ambrose acted as if he was injured and he told the ringside doctor to “pop it back in” (in reference to his shoulder) but the doctor and referees forced him backstage. Kingston looks as if he’s finally going to win a Money In The Bank match when he backdrops Seth Rollins onto a ladder from the top of another. But Ziggler takes advantage and clears the ring of everyone. As he climbs, Rollins interrupts him with a steel chair to the ankle. Ambrose returns to the match and takes out Rollins with a steel chair. As his fingertips touch the case, Kane’s pyro and music play as he comes down to chokeslam & Tombstone Ambrose. He then held the ladder for Seth Rollins to climb and grab the briefcase. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H come out after the match to congratulate Rollins.

Winner & holder of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match contract: Seth Rollins

 

Goldust & Stardust vs RybAxel

Cody- Sorry Stardust started out the match with his take of some of Goldust’s signature stances and moves. He tags out quickly to his brother who is quickly beaten down by RybAxel. It was all RybAxel until Stardust received the hot tag and went nuts. While it look liked Stardust had the win after CrossRhodes, he eventually rolled up Ryback for the win. Axel ambushed Stardust but Goldust made the save & Dust to Dust hit MNM’s old finishing move, the lifting “Snapshot” DDT.

Winners: Dust to Dust

 

Rusev (w/Lana) vs Big E

Why this isn’t a Flag Match is beyond me. Rusev and Big E collide to start the match but it’s Big E who gets the first upperhand. Rusev gets back into the match with an amazing release German suplex that tossed Big E across the ring. Both men traded stiff offensive moves until Big E used his diving spear onto the outside where it looked like he drove his own head into the floor. Rusev sold well as Big E tried to sign up for the Big Ending but Rusev countered and eventually picked up the submission win with The Accolade.

 

Layla vs Summer Rae (Fandango as the Special Referee)

Fandango has to be wearing the first ever bedazzled referee’s shirt. Not a Diva, Fandango. Ton of catfighting and teases of who Fandango would be in favor of. Eventually Layla won with a kick to the head and Fandango made out with her after the match. Summer Rae put on her best Kim Kardashian face and cried.

 

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Money In The Bank Ladder Match: Alberto Del Rio vs Sheamus vs John Cena vs Bray Wyatt vs Kane vs Cesaro vs Randy Orton vs Roman Reigns

Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came down to ringside to observe the championship match. Cesaro and Del Rio teamed up while Orton and Kane paired up against John Cena. Cesaro and Del Rio get crushed by a running Bray Wyatt before Reigns takes out Wyatt. Everyone starts heading for ladders until Kane enters the ring to level every man in the match. The first real allegiance is shown when Kane lifts Orton up by the throat and puts him on the ladder. Reigns tips the ladder before Orton can grab the belts and Orton takes a nasty shot to the top of head from the corner of the ladder. The doctors take a while working on him and I can only think he’s bleeding badly. Sheamus and Cesaro climb the ladder and hang from the belts when Wyatt removes the ladder from under them. Sheamus falls quick but Cesaro hangs on for a good while before falling to the mat. A close up Orton shows that he is split open on the top of the head but the medics did a pretty good job of slowing the bleeding. Everyone makes a mad scramble to climb the ladder adding for a great visual but no one comes close to the belts before Kane eliminates everyone from the ring. A great spot lead to Reigns tipping over the ladder (which had another ladder wedged in between it) and the ladders end up in a tilted triangle, allowing Cesaro and Sheamus to still battle for the belts. Eventually everyone is climbing the ladders before Roman Reigns gets the spotlight and is able to take out everyone with his signature moves leading to a standoff with John Cena. Reigns spears Cena but then is dropped by Orton. Cesaro stole the spotlight with a super-uppercut to Sheamus off the ladder and a Neutralizer before taking a vicious RKO off the top of the ladder. Reigns cut off a bloody Randy Orton but Kane dashed Reign’s run to the top with a chokeslam. As Randy Orton was scaling the ladder while Kane was holding it in place, Cena delivered the AA to Kane & Orton onto a fallen ladder before climbing the ladder and becoming a 15-time World Heavyweight Champion.

Winner & new WWE World Heavyweight Champion: John Cena

 

Overall a decent show that definitely had its lows and highs. I recommend checking it out as I’m sure my PBP didn’t do it justice.
