Dean Ambrose Wins MITB Briefcase, & Becomes NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion

Xavier Woods
Live from the T-Mobile Arena, located in a suburb near Las Vegas, Nevada, Dean Ambrose became “Mr. Money in the Bank”, when he climbed high up the ladder, and snatched the briefcase; earning a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship during WWE’s Money in the Bank (MITB) pay-per-view(PPV). His reign as briefcase holder wouldn’t last long though, as Ambrose cashed in the contract, that very same night: after Seth Rollins defeated Roman Reigns to become two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champ. As Rollins began his post-win celebration, Ambrose rushed into the ring, knocked him out with the briefcase, cashed in his contract, and pinned Rollins in the middle of the ring.

Golden Truth (R-Truth and Goldust) defeated Breezango (Tyler Breeze and Fandango) Pre-Show Kickoff Match

The tag team match opened the MITB Pre-Show Kickoff, with two very burnt superstars in Tyler Breeze and Fandago (apparent victims of a tanning salon fiasco gone wrong). To no one’s surprise, Breezango lost the match, after Goldust hit his Final Cut finisher, and scored the three-count on Fandango.

The Lucha Dragons (Sin Cara and Kalisto) defeated The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von) – Pre-Show Kickoff Match

The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Big E, with Xavier Woods) defeated The Club (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson), Enzo Amore and Big Cass, and The Vaudevillians (Aiden English and Simon Gotch) to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships – Fatal Four-Way Match

The WWE tag team division has not looked this good in a long time. A perfect way to start up the MITB PPV, the match had plenty of action, and spotlighted the strengthens of each team. Some highlights included: Big Cass throwing Amore over the top rope, onto four superstars outside the ring; a brawl that broke out between all four teams in the middle of the ring; as well as Big Cass giving Gallows a big boot, that caused both superstars to fall over the top rope. In the end, Big E and Kofi hit their finisher, the Midnight Hour, to Anderson to get him out of the ring; and Kingston then pinned the legal man (a laid-out Vaudevillian, Aiden English) for the three-count, to retain their WWE Tag Team titles.

Baron Corbin defeated Dolph Ziggler

While Baron Corbin dominated most of the match, Ziggler did come back midway. Sadly, it did not last long, when Corbin blocked a Super Kick from Ziggler, that laid the superstar out. To worsen things, Ziggler stumbled on the steel steps outside the ring, and Corbin laid his Deep Six finisher, on the floor, near the entrance ramp. In the end, Corbin hit his End of Days finisher, and gained the win on Ziggler.

Charlotte and Dana Brook defeated Natalya and Becky Lynch – Women’s Tag Team Match

While Becky Lynch and Nattie put in quite a fight, in the end, the team of Charlotte and Dana Brook defeated the duo, after Charlotte laid her Natural Selection finisher on Nattie, for the three-count. What was even more shocking, was the fact that Natalya turned on Lynch post-match; attacking her, and essentially turning heel.

Apollo Crews defeated Sheamus

Before the bell even rung, Sheamus was on Apollo Crews, ready to start the match. Sheamus pretty much dominated the first part of the match, until Crews caught a second-wind; which included a somersault off the apron onto Sheamus outside the ring, by Crews. Sheamus then laid his White Noise finisher on Crews, off the second rope … and Apollo kicked out. Crews then flipped Sheamus over, and snuck the three-count on him, winning the match.

AJ Styles defeated John Cena

The match everyone had been waiting for, did not disappoint. With the crowd pumped, the bout began with the two mega stars just exchanging moves and countering moves. Amongst the chants of “AJ Styles/Let’s Go Cena”, Styles quickly turned the tides of the match, and dominated over the Cenation leader for a good portion of the match. Cena was able to come back, when Styles leaped through the ropes, trying to land on Cena (who was outside the ring); but Cena was able to move out of the way. Still, it didn’t seem to make any difference, as Cena laid his signature STF on Styles, but AJ was able to break the submission by getting to the ropes. In fact, Cena tried to hit his AA finisher, twice on AJ, and Styles was able to get out of it; with Cena laying it on a third attempt – and Styles kicking out at a count of two. On the other side of the coin, Styles laid his signature Styles Clash on Cena, only to get a two-count as well. In the end, Styles won the match, after the referee got knocked out, and Gallows and Anderson ran in, interfering in the match, and helping AJ Styles gain the three-count.

Dean Ambrose defeated Kevin Owens, Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Alberto Del Rio, and Chris Jericho, to become ‘Mr. Money in the Bank’ – MITB Briefcase Ladder Match

In the end, The Lunatic Fringe rose above the others, to grab the briefcase, earning the title of “Mr. Money in the Bank”, and gaining a contract for a chance at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Rusev (with Lana) defeated Titus O’Neil to retain his United States Championship

The match started with Rusev approaching O’Neil’s children, who were sitting in the front row. Sadly, the mind game worked, with Rusev dominating Titus, early on in the match. Furthering the mind games, Rusev had O’Neil in a head lock, angled towards the O’Neil kids, screaming, “Do you see your children?” In the end, these games worked, as Titus O’Neil ended up tapping out to Rusev’s Accolade submission. Post-match, Rusev approached O’Neil’s kids on the mic, claiming that their father was a ‘loser’, and wished the crowd a ‘Happy Father’s Day’.

Seth Rollins defeated Roman Reigns to become two-time WWE World Heavyweight Championship – Lost It Post-Match Due To A MITB Cash-In By Dean Ambrose

The Wrestlemania-worthy match, got off to somewhat of a slow start. While Roman did dominate most of the match initially, Seth came back, with a series of slaps to the face, and some kicks as well. This only infuriated the Big Dog, and he set Rollins up onto the top rope, and knocked him outside of the ring with little effort. Reigns proceeded to beat up the former champion, outside on the announcers’ table, and along the ring apron. Rollins did get a second-wind, with a series of drop kicks to the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and two high-flying moves over the top rope, outside the ring, onto Reigns. Sadly, these moves did not help Rollins gain a three-count, but they did knock Roman down a few pegs. Both men pulled out all the stops: Roman with the Superman Punch – and Rollins with a Frog Splash; but neither could gain the three-count off of each other. With both men making multiple attempts at pins, and failing; the fight spilled outside the ring, with Reigns attempting to spear Rollins, missing and falling hard into the barricade; seemingly injuring himself. Rollins took this as an opportunity to gain the upper hand, and pushed Reigns back into the ring. After two Pedigrees, Rollins was able to gain the pin on Roman Reigns, and become two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. His celebration and reign however, did not last that long though. Sadly, Dean Ambrose rushed to the ring, cashed in his newly-won MITB contract, and pinned Rollins in the middle of the ring, to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
