Sam Roberts on the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: “You have to keep in mind that these are women who have never been in a Money in the Bank Ladder Match before!”
Naomi refused to name someone she wants to see win the women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Mind you, Tamina Snuka, who is competing in this match, is her sister in law. It’s a cold business.
Dasha Fuentes pronounces “Day One-ish” like it’s a number adjacent to the number one. Like it’s the number 1.3. For the uninformed, and those failing to connect with younger viewers, the word “ish” does not mean adjacent, it’s a euphemism for the word “s–t.”
All five WWE Superstars competing in the women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match said it’s their time. Four of them are lying.
Add Booker T to the legion of WWE personnel who do not understand how to properly use the term Day One Ish.
With 23 minutes left in the Money in the Bank pre-show, Sam Roberts said “WWE Universe,” four times. My over/under is 6.5. I took the over.
If Zack Ryder doesn’t turn heel tonight, he’s destined to spend the rest of his career in catering.
Suggestions on how Ryder can turn on Mojo Rawley:
- By openly hitting on the bartender Mojo Rawley has been crushing on for months.
- By standing by, with his arms crossed resentfully, while Mojo Rawley begs for a spot on the squat rack.
- By tossing their Magic Bullet blender into the crowd.
- In a post-match promo, Ryder reveals that he didn’t forget to clean the protein shake out of the Magic Bullet, he did it on purpose.
Zack Ryder did not turn heel. What a waste. Also of note, Sam Roberts “only” said “WWE Universe five times.” I guess I’m not in much of a forecasting mood today.
James Ellsworth captured the Money in the Bank briefcase and the referees tried to wave it off because that’s just one accessory too many.
As I predicted women competed in an entertaining Ladder Match rife with a “this is awesome” chant. Wrestling media was worried they would kills themselves and that maybe the briefcase needed to be lowered, but they competently competed all by themselves just like big girls!
Xavier Woods played “Mask Off” by Future, one of the biggest hip-hop stars in the country. Hip-hop is very popular with young people. WWE is not. Now that you have this information, please Tweet @ThisIsNasty with answers to the following question:
- Did the WWE announcers make any specific mention of the song “Mask Off” by Future?
- a. Yes
- b. No
- Which song is more closely associated with WWE at the moment?
- a. “Mask Off” by Future (2017)
- b. “Great Balls of Fire” By Jerry Lee Lewis (1957)
Carmella made a cameo during the SmackDown Women’s Championship match both to tease cashing in and as a way for WWE to make sure the fans were still awake.
Bennett Kanellis and Maria Kanellis appeared out of nowhere with some dope love music to boot. Somewhere in Nashville, TNA is trying to stop the couple from being in love on camera as this gimmick was crafted on their television.
“Cowboy” Bob Orton was in his hometown, was mentioned numerous times in Randy Orton promos and Ric Flair still got top billing during the legend’s roll call.
The bumps that the Singh Bros. are willing to take are a major selling point of these Jinder Mahal matches.
As The Ascension and Breezango do battle in the popcorn match, now’s a good time to note that there has been outside interference in all four championship matches thus far, including Money in the Bank.
Baron Corbin obstructed Shinsuke Nakamura’s entrance, leaving WWE with an entire hour to kill.
Nakamura’s return and subsequent tear of the Money in the Bank field is, by far, his greatest moment during his young tenure on the WWE main roster.
As Nakamura and AJ Styles faced off to the chorus of a unanimous nerdgasm, Tod Phillips described AJ as an old face. He’s right, AJ turned 40 this month.
Baron Corbin is your Money in the Bank winner. And the, um, dynasty continues:
