WWE Money in the Bank live results

The Hype Bros def. The Colons via pinfall: “The Broski” is back. Zack Ryder’s in-ring return following a lengthy knee injury was a successful one as he reunited with Mojo Rawley. Ryder sold a reaggravated left knee injury throughout most of the match until the eventual hot tag to Rawley. Chaos eventually broke out late until The Hype Bros teamed up for a Hype Ryder on Primo to get the pin. Decent energy and basic storytelling in this one but nothing more. Grade: C+

Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match — Carmella def. Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Natalya and Tamina Snuka: With more than a little help from her male valet, James Ellsworth, the first Mrs. Money in the Bank is Carmella after a match that came to an abrupt finish just as it was starting to heat up. The early high spots were well-executed as all five women took turns making a run for the top of the ladder only to be intercepted. Flair turned in the biggest moment with a corkscrew splash from the top rope onto Snuka and Natalya on the floor. But despite Ellsworth’s heavy involvement in the finish being a good idea on paper, the execution was incredibly poor.

Ellsworth made a late save by tipping the ladder and knocking off Lynch. However, after he was unable to revive Carmella, he climbed the ladder himself and dropped the briefcase down to her. After a brief discussion from the three referees at ringside, Ellsworth grabbed the microphone to announce Carmella as the winner — and the decision somehow stood. Ellsworth can be a heat-seeking missile at times, and the briefcase should only elevate Carmella. But the handling of the finish took the focus off where it should have been — the athleticism of five women who were in the midst of a historic match. Grade: C
