WWE Money in the Bank 2020: Results, full recap, wild consummation and match evaluations
A whole lot more fun than anticipated.
Cash in the Bank 2020 could have been a trainwreck. It was planned to be featured by two Money in the Bank coordinates, the men’s and the ladies’ going on simultaneously. What’s more, rather than the standard multi-individual stepping stool coordinate, the challengers were to begin at the base of WWE’s corporate home office building and scramble their way to the top. How might this work? Is there any possibility it could be acceptable? It didn’t appear to be likely, to me in any event.
Be that as it may, similar to the Boneyard and Firefly Fun House coordinates before it, this was a charming astonishment and a great deal of fun. Asuka won the ladies’ satchel, an incredible choice, and Otis the men’s, a faulty choice. Otis is abundantly adored, yet it’s difficult to see his present character in a headliner fight. Be that as it may, we will see.
Prior in the show, Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman were both ready to safeguard their reality title. McIntyre beat Seth Rollins in a solid match, and Strowman beat Bray Wyatt in a frail one.
The primary show was just 2-and-a-half hours long, which ideally gets standard for WWE pay-per-sees since it’s the ideal length. The following is a full recap of Money in the Bank 2020.
Otis and Asuka win Money in the Bank matches
Man, gracious man. This. Was. Fantastic.
I as a matter of fact had low desires for this – Money in the Bank being a race from the base of WWE HQ to the top, with both the ladies’ and men’s matches happening simultaneously – so this was a too charming amazement. It was shot likewise to the Boneyard and Firefly Fun House matches at WrestleMania, just it was (somewhat less crazy).
The folks began in the storm cellar rec center. The ladies began at ground floor. Asuka bounced from a close by edge to wreck the ladies, and afterward took the lift up a few stories. The men had a chaotic situation in the exercise center, finishing with Rey Mysterio catching AJ Styles under a hand weight.
What followed as totally strange, yet so much fun. AJ Styles saw a banner of the Undertaker and got PTSD flashbacks to their WrestleMania experience. We got a food battle between the men and the ladies that, by one way or another, didn’t suck. There were appearances by Brother Love, Doink the Clown and John Laurinaitis.
Probably the best part was AJ and Daniel Bryan fighting into Vince McMahon’s office, where he speedily yelled them out. Is it idiotic to have two top folks bullied by the chief? Better believe it. However, it’s so senseless it’s difficult to be distraught.
The ladies were the first to make it to the top, where Asuka unclipped the main satchel. The men made it up later. Aristocrat Corbin and AJ were battling about the other attaché when Elias showed up, dropping Corbin by crushing him in the back with a guitar. AJ then bobbled the attaché, which was gotten by Otis. Truly.
Rating: Go out of your approach to watch this. No star rating, since it was certainly not a genuine match.
Drew McIntyre massacres Seth Rollins
Drew McIntyre’s first WWE Championship safeguard is a triumph. He stuck Seth Rollins after a Claymore Kick. After the match the two shook hands.
These two worked a headliner style coordinate as if they were in a field with a full group. It was absolutely harmed by the absence of a group of people by virtue of that, yet everything worked up to an astounding last couple of moments. Heaps of fun counters and hardened kicks, including McIntyre turning around a tree of trouble into a top-rop German Suplex, paving the way to McIntyre kicking out of a Curb Stomp before getting the success through Claymore.
Rating: 3.75 stars.
Braun Strowman beats Bray Wyatt
Bawl Wyatt came out as Bray Wyatt, not The Fiend. Starting there on, it was genuinely certain that Strowman would be dominating this game.
What’s more, what a match it was. This was more similar to Bray Wyatt versus The Miz than The Fiend versus Daniel Bryan as far as match quality. In other words… not great. It was a fine wrestling match punctuated by wacky minutes, with manikins from the Firefly Fun House springing up to support Wyatt.
Wyatt would get a couple close to falls, including after a Sister Abigail. In the long run, Strowman put on the old cover he used to wear when he was a piece of the Wyatt Family. Whinny thought this implied an arrival home, as it were, yet it was a ploy. Strowman shocks him with a powerslam and gets the pin. The story is that Strowman beat Wyatt unexpectedly, winning mindgames. Faltering.
The story makes certain to proceed with Wyatt taking Strowman on as The Fiend at a future show.
Rating: 1.5 stars. Swing and a miss.
Bayley holds SmackDown Women’s Championship
Bayley beat Tamina by countering a Samoan Drop with a Crucifix pin. Tamina had Bayley beat at the same time, being an imbecilic babyface, chose to pursue Sasha Banks around the ring as opposed to sticking Bayley.
Long counterpart for a feeble challenger. Tamina buckled down, yet it’s hard purchase that she’d be the one to end Bayley’s long title rule. Feature of the match was a sweet counter that saw Bayley switch a superkick into a leglock. The main issue was that Bayley apparently doesn’t have the foggiest idea about any real leglocks – she had Tamina in an unusual blend of a lower leg lock and a knee bar, with Corey Graves scrambling to clarify how the accommodation isn’t generally in. In any case, the majority of the crowd won’t know better or care, so it was a cool spot.
Bobby Lashley pins R-Truth
R-Truth makes his was to the ring rapping his passage, enticing the nonexistent group to “make some commotion.” R-Truth is so extraordinary.
MVP descends for their match in any case, after some quarreling among MVP and Truth, Bobby Lashley enters and says he’ll have MVP’s spot.
After a short match, Bobby Lashley murders R-Truth with a lance.
Rating: Squash coordinate. R-Truth doing his passageway with no group was fun, however.
New Day hold SmackDown Tag Titles
After a pleasant match, The New Day effectively guarded their gold when Big E stuck Gran Metalik after a Big Ending. It was a lethal four match setting The New Day in opposition to Lucha House Party, The Forgotten Sons and John Morrison and The Miz.
The match had a few defects – a few spots were a touch messy, simpler to see with no group to divert, and you could some of the time see folks keeping an eye out sitting tight for their chance in the move – yet every one of the eight grapplers buckled down. The match wound up being entertainingly clamorous, with groups labeling in and out and bunches of inventive cooperation.
There was an abnormal second towards the end when Jaxson Rikker meddled and Michael Cole noticed that the ref can’t do anything since it’s a no preclusion coordinate. At that point the ref continued to launch Rikker.
Rating: 3 stars.
The opening shot Show results
Jeff Hardy vanquished Cesaro with a Swanton Bomb. It’s Hardy’s first match subsequent to returning – so for what reason was it on the Kickoff Show? Who knows.
