Caught in the realm of WWE’s recent hotshot Pay-Per-View/WWE Network live special schedule, Money In The Bank finds itself in decent footing.

Things could be much worse, right?

Headed into this show, Dean Ambrose-Seth Rollins are set to do battle with a ladder between them for the title that Ambrose wrongfully holds. NXT Champion Kevin Owens and United States Champion John Cena will have a rematch that comes with high expectations. Of course, the match that the show is named after should have its share of thrills but given the participants, the pathway to victory only seems to be visible for one guy.

The undercard also isn’t much to write home about, but we’ll dive into all of that below.

Final Deposit 

– Things started off with Dean Ambrose who came to the ring, leather jacket-clad, bead necklace-clad and more importantly, WWE World Heavyweight Championship-clad. He looked back at his journey on Raw partying with the belt in New Orleans in his own funny way. He brought the money in his go-home promo, which was the perfect cue for WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins to come in all angry. The bit with the replica belt was a bit on the cutesy side, but it was effective given the storyline. Also, that’s a pretty damn close replica. Ambrose’s carelessness of where he left the belt was sort of funny (as was his line about him thinking it was still Tuesday, tongue-in-cheek much?) but you’d think he’d take care of something he really wants and has held as if it were his own property a bit more. Kane coming out to laugh at Rollins to set up his match with Dolph Ziggler later also worked for the segment.

Bourbon Street Blues 

– Starting a Raw with a John Cena promo? How incredibly 2007. However – this was only a good thing nowadays since it obviously tied into NXT Champion Kevin Owens. Good call to start things with the United States Championship Open Challenge. We also knew we were strapped in for yet another enthusiastic “go-home” style promo for Money In The Bank. This stayed away from the usual though once Owens came out and made his “delusional” claims and hung right there with Cena in a decent exchange, not like their first one though. This showed Owens being a coward, but also logically explained his actions, like we’re used to. Neville challenging Owens was clever because it’s relevant on the main roster and also tied into NXT, where Owens had taken out Neville previously. Neville stood his ground decently as he claimed Owens didn’t deserve the title he had.
